Mnimi is the Greek word for memory. The included plantable paper of this card, has been produced from paper waste of our Resort. It is enriched with seeds of the most characteristic herbs of Rhodes Island’s wild flora that we use in our kitchen.

Please accept this gift as a token of our gratitude and plant those seeds back in your homeland, keeping alive your most memorable holidays with us.


1 – Prepare Your Seed Paper For Planting
For best results plant your seed paper from March-April or late September in preparation for the following Spring.

While you can plant the whole seed paper, it’s much more effective to tear your seed paper into smaller pieces in preparation for planting, because there are dozens of seeds of herbs inside. Next, you’ll need to find some suitable pots to plant your seed paper pieces. Try to find a sunny spot that’s protected from strong wind for the best results.

2-Choose Your Growing Medium
Seeds and eventually herbs need nutrients to grow and thrive.

If you’re using a receptacle fill your pot with either soil or compost (peat-free is preferable), don’t pack it too tightly, and place it aside for the next step. If you’re planting in late spring and straight to a wild area, take some time to aerate the soil before you begin to plant your seed paper.

3- Plant Your Seed Paper
Place your seed paper pieces in your pots under a thin layer of soil.

Cover under about 1-2 mm of soil or compost and make sure not to pack the soil too tightly. Water generously (without waterlogging) daily and wait for small shoots to emerge before reducing your watering to twice a week.

4- Watch Your Herbs Grow & Thrive
Be patient and you will see your plantable paper sprout.

The seeds from your plantable paper will sprout massively after a few weeks or a little more. After about two or three weeks more, you‘ll have to separate and transplant them as you wish in larger pots or wherever you prefer in your garden.
