Make those cards you send to your friend or family member last a little longer: UK-based Postcarden is a pop-out-card-turned-mini-garden. Each set contains a cardboard scene, an inner growing tray, packet of cress seeds and step-by-step growing instructions. The contents come neatly packaged with a postcard-style space for the recipient's address and sender's greeting. Charming!
Designed and produced by A Studio For Design, a London-based compant, and printed in Wales using locally sourced cress seeds and inner-packaging material, sending Postcarden in the UK only requires a regular large letter stamp.
Available for £7.50 from Postcarden. Seeds should sprout in three days and the plant should last two weeks. Unfortunately, due to custom restrictions on importing seeds, Postcarden is not available outside the European Union.
