Making Your Home Greener Inside and Out

As a thank you for your continued support of RetroFoam of Michigan we wanted to give you a little something to make your home a little greener inside and out in honor of Earth Day.

Seed Paper Planting Instructions

Planting your seed paper and helping it grow into beautiful wild flowers is as simple as getting a little potting soil, water, and some TLC.

All you need is:

  • Your seed paper.
  • Potting soil.
  • Water.
  • Small flower pot, flower bed, or garden.

Once you pick where you want your flowers to grow, you will place the soil in the pot right to the top. Next you will gently pack the soil so it is compressed, but not too hard-packed. Then you can place the seed paper on top and add another thin layer of potting soil over the top — about one-eighth of an inch.

Right off the bat make sure to give your newly planted seed paper a generous soaking of water. After that it’s just tender loving care to make sure the paper is always moist. This could mean watering it just a little bit every day or two — just enough to make sure it stays moist.

The only other step is to make sure your planted seed paper is in a sunny-area and within a few weeks you should see some little green spouts begin to pop-up.
