FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long do the seeds last?


Our Australian native seeds viable life is from 5 - 7 years. The longer the paper is kept the less seeds in the paper will be viable.




Can I send my plantable cards anywhere in Australia?


Western Australia and Tasmania have quarantine regulations which control the entry of seeds (and other potential bio-security hazards). WA and TAS are subject to conforming to WA and Tas documentation requirements and being appropriate seeds.

Before sending or ordering our cards to either WA or TAS, we recommend you discuss the implications with us. We can supply necessary documentation but there might be additional inspection charges for WA. We can also assist in ways to minimize these.

Our cards only contain the Brachyscome iberidifolia (Swan River Daisy), which is orginally native to WA.

Our Nurturing Nature Gift Cards are allowed into all other States and Territories.

How do I plant my card?


1. When you are ready to plant your card, wet the card to give moisture to the seeds before planting in soil. 2. Lay the card flat, so the seeds can grow upwards easily, or rip up. 3. Use nutrient rich soil and lightly cover with soil. 4. Make sure your card gets lots of sunlight and water 1-2 times a week. 5. You will see sprouts in 2 - 4 weeks!*
*Unfortunately, we cannot 100% guarantee that every card will grow. Although we try our hardest to provide the best product we can for growth during the producing stage, we cannot control the many variables to grow a healthy plant i.e weather, after care and maintenance.




Overseas & Bio Security


When sending your plantable gift cards internationally you must always check that region's bio security laws and let quarantine know.

Many countries have documentation requirements for any plant matter such as seeds.

We can assist with the provision of this documentation (extra charges apply).




What time of the year should I plant my card?


You can propagate from seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost date. You can also sow directly in the garden after the last frost date. The Swan River Daisy is low maintenance and doesn't require fancy soil, just make sure the ground is well-drained.
