Products & Options

Do these come with seeds?

Our fully completed options DO come with seeds included, but our DIY options DO NOT come with seeds.

What kind of seeds do you use?

We carry on hand Forget-Me-Not seed, Wildflower seed, Sunflower seed, Daisy seed, Zinnia seed and organic bird seed, but we welcome any special seed requests as well.

For custom seed orders, please Request a Custom Order.

What is the shelf life of the seeds?

The shelf life of our seeds is up to 2 years if stored in a dark, dry and cool environment.  Exposure to sun, heat and/or moisture can drastically reduce this shelf life.

What size are the packets?

Our seed packets are approximately 3 5/8″ x 2 3/4″ and come with a full helping of flower seed (as compared to any store bought flower seed packet).

What is the DIY option?

The DIY option is our Do-It-Yourself option which comes with all of the components, except the seeds, to complete these exact packets on your own.

What do I need for my DIY order?

As a reminder, our DIY options DO NOT INCLUDE SEED. So to better prepare yourself for your DIY order, here’s what you will need: any flower seed of your choice, a paper cutter or scissors, glue or glue tape, and lots of love =)

We include a full set of step-by-step instructions for assembly, but if you ever need help along the way, you can always contact us directly.

We recommend setting aside approximately 4-6 hours per 100 packets for assembly.

What is the difference between DIY & Fully Completed?

Our DIY options come with all of the components, EXCEPT THE SEEDS, to complete these exact packets on your own. That includes the envelopes for housing your own seed, sowing labels for double sealing each envelope that read “plant with love” for flower seed options, or “feed with love” for the bird seed options, floral or solid color background wraps (depending on the item purchased), personalized outer wraps and hemp cord tie to tie it all together. Our DIY options come with standard 2-3 day processing.

Our fully completed options come 100% completed, WITH SEED INCLUDED, and are all tied up ready for you to pass out. For our fully completed options, we provide 3 choices for processing times: 2-3 day processing, 3-5 day processing, or 5-10 day processing.
