Plant My Tags
Porch Fly Clothing has partnered with Botanical PaperWorks to deliver a biodegradable plantable eco-paper that is made with post-consumer materials embedded with BASIL seeds. When you plant our tags in a pot of soil, the tag will grow into savory Basil!
When the paper is planted in a pot of soil, the seeds grow and the paper composts away, leaving behind flowers, herbs, or vegetables. You know what’s even more awesome? Its production requires NO trees and when planted it leaves NO waste. It’s really easy to plant and grow - we’ll show you how below:
How To Plant Porch Fly Hang Tags
You’re going to need:
- A small pot for planting
- Good potting soil
- 1 Porch Fly hang tag
- A sunny corner inside or on the porch
STEP 1 - PREPARE YOUR POT
Fill your pot 2/3 full with good potting soil. Tamp down the soil and add more if necessary. You want the pot to be firmly full, but not packed. The tag can be planted indoors or outside, so you get to choose according to the temperature and conditions at the time of planting (make sure the temperature is mild)
STEP 2 - PLANT THE PAPER
Take your hangtag and cover the soil in the prepared pot with the paper. It's okay if the tag overlaps. Spread a 1/8 to 1/4 inch layer of soil over the hangtag pieces and tamp down gently.
STEP 3 - WATER DURING GERMINATION
After planting the paper in your pot, give it a good soak. You want the paper and the soil to be nicely damp but not swimming in water. During the first 10 days, keep the paper moist at all times. The water is necessary for germination.
STEP 4 - CARE AFTER GERMINATION
Once sprouts appear, continue to keep the paper moist but be careful not to overwater. Once sturdy plants appear, water as needed.
STEP 5 - ENJOY THE HERBS
Once the Basil starts to blossom, just sit back and enjoy!
