Single carrot seed pencil made from recycled newspaper
These handcrafted pencils, made from recycled paper, are an eco friendly and unique alternative to high street options.
Plant the pencil stub when it’s too short to write with and see it grow into tasty carrots - a great way of growing your own 5 a day! Or if you are impatient remove the end of the pencil and plant the capsule- it is all fully compostable.
All aspects of this plantable pencil are sustainable and non-toxic. It includes a fully biodegradable seed capsule to the 100% natural clay and graphite core.
For planting seeds: sow them directly into the ground, nutrient rich soil which is slightly loosened is most favourable. Sow 1cm deep in the soil with 5cm between seeds. Cover the seeds with soil and compress soil surface.
