These handcrafted pencils made from recycled paper are an eco friendly and unique alternative to high street options.
Made using completely eco friendly materials and high quality graphite pencil core, which is sustainably sourced. Layers of recycled newspaper are wrapped around the core, and compressed together so that it functions exactly like a normal pencil. The rolled paper is upcycled paper scraps and decomposable. The recycled cap on the end of the pencil can be popped off to use the seeds placed inside, the pencil itself doesn’t have to be planted, but this is also an option - plant at a slight angle and the cap decomposes. The seeds can be removed when the pencil has run out or at any time within a 12 month timeframe.
For planting carrot 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. Water regularly at the root and keep in sunlight area, greenhouse or poly tunnel.
