If you plant a scroll, it will grow??

A few weeks ago I wrote about a paper scroll I received from Nature Valley. The scroll told me to plant it, before you all start backing away from your screens, it told me in the sense that it had a written message upon it. So new gardening gloves in tow I dutifully placed it into a lovely terracotta pot and forgot about it.

Well last night I popped into the garden and I’m pleased to report, it’s grown shoots! I haven’t got the foggiest exactly what these shoots will transpire to be, but the point is, it’s grown! Who would have thought that paper could be so inventive. I may start writing all my notes on seed scrolls, a one woman mission to make the world a more pretty place!

Unfortunately we will just have to wait and see what these little shoots of green turn out to be.  But I’m currently having a childlike sense of pride that this little scroll actually grew, as I’ve said before, I direct gardening I don’t do it personally.

I received this little scroll courtesy of Nature Valley. But I have found this site online, which sells all kinds of seed paper. I’d like to try out the seeded printer paper!

Nature Valley, Gardening & Scrolls!

Following on from my post yesterday I was delighted when the postman knocked on my door this morning with this beautiful package from Nature Valley 🙂

You’ll probably remember from previous posts that I am a big fan of Nature Valley bars, so I was more than delighted to have a new stash to eat (I may share one or two) they also sent me some lovely gardening gloves and a paper scroll. Yesterday I admitted to being the director of garden operations and didn’t actually get stuck in with the hard work. Well inspired by the gloves and Nature Valley’s new facebook app/comp, I hope you’ll all be over the top proud when I show you these pics where I actually planted something myself! Before you all tell me that I appear to be planting a sheet of paper. This was the scroll Nature Valley sent, inside it said ‘You can plant me and I will grow!’  so I’ve dutifully followed this advice and can’t wait to see what will start appearing in due course. It did conjure up images of Alice in Wonderland, I’ve heard of seed paper before but I’ve never had the chance to try it until now. It would make fabulous wedding favours.

So get your gloves on and get gardening, I’ll let you off if you plant a virtual garden over on facebook as some very lucky designers will have those gardens made for real for everyone to enjoy in London.

I’ll also report back when the scroll starts to grow into something pretty!
