SEED PENCIL


 Seed pencil is the first sustainable pencil in the world that can be planted after use. It has been given this dual function by replacing the eraser, which usually sits on top of the pencil, with a special seed capsule.

The Plantable Pencil

The seed capsule, which contains high quality, untreated seeds, is water soluble, making the pencil easy to plant after use. Out of the pencil grow delicious fresh herbs, crispy vegetables or edible flowers.
 
 
The pencil is made of natural materials: the body is cedar wood, while the “lead” is a mixture of clay and graphite, and therefore does not contain any toxic material.

 

Target Market

People of any age can plant the seedpencil and experience the joy of seeing it germinate. The home-grown herbs, vegetables or flowers can be used in cooking to give a dish the perfect taste.
 
 
Do you need something innovative and unique to give to your customers?
The pencil can also be used to promote awareness of a company or a special message.
 
 
For example, the pencil can be used in the context of a special event or the launch of a new product. The pencil is available in a customised version, where your company can have a logo or special text engraved on the pencil.

 


4 TIPS FROM PLANT EXPERT

Plant your pencil at a slight angle, so the capsule is just barely covered by a thin layer of soil 3-4 cm.

Water regularly, so the soil is always slightly damp. If you water in a saucer, you can pour off the excess water after 10-15 minutes, so you do not drown the plants. If the weather is very warm, it is best to water in the morning or evening.

Remember to give your plants fertiliser. Plants also need feeding if they are to grow big and healthy.

You can also collect seeds from your plants to give you even more plants next year.
