What a Fabulous Idea?

I picked up a postcard at the council recently that was promoting “Help Green Our Parks”. The Rozelle Bay Community Native Nursery, a volunteer community group reintroducing local plant species to the area, was seeking new volunteers.

In turning over the card there was the usual part about “made using 100% recycled paper” but then I continued to read on, to the amazing part of the text – that the card itself actually contains native Pink Tea Tree seeds! To grow these you soak the postcard until soft, place in potting mix and cover with a thin layer of soil, water well and keep moist. The seeds should then germinate in 1 to 2 weeks. What a fabulous idea! The card serves a dual purpose as both a promotional tool and a way to further the desired outcome.

I have to admit that I am certainly no green thumb, but am intrigued to plant this card and see what happens….
