Postcarden, the greeting cards for green-fingered friends

Picture this – a pop-up card that’s also a unique gift and you can grow it! Postcarden is a simple greeting card that transforms into a living garden you can eat. Made in Britain, the designers wanted to make sending a card that little bit more special. They came up with the wonderful idea of getting the recipient to grow their own mini-garden.

There are three designs to choose from – allotment, city and botanical. They are made from locally sourced products and of course can be eaten and recycled – green through and through! This is a great way of saying hello and giving a present that keeps on growing. Check out the handy video below that shows just how to bring them to life. They cost £7.50 direct from Postcarden. Unfortunately due to Australian customs restrictions on plants and seeds they are only available to be sent to friends in Europe.
