Frequently Asked Questions

Are Seeds Included?

Yes! Our dissolvable seed pods contain the very best organic and non-GMO seeds from our partners High Mowing Seed Company and Johnny’s Select Seeds. Depending on the germination rate for each seed type, we include multiple seeds in each pod to ensure germination.

What sizes do Seedsheets come in?

Custom Seedsheets come in two sizes; Backyard or Container. Backyard Seedsheets are 4 feet by 8 feet (4'x8'), which fits most raised beds. Container Seedsheets are 12" in diameter, and work perfectly with our fabric containers (you can add to cart while building your custom Conainer Seedsheet), or alternatively they fit most terracotta pots or 5-gallon buckets. 

Do I need to bury a Seedsheet?

No. Simply place the Seedsheet (seed-side-down) on top of the soil in your garden container or bed. The dissolvable seed pods contain organic nonGMO seeds as well as a buffer of soil, so when you plant your Seedsheet seed-side-down you are already burying your seeds beneath a protective layer of soil!

Can I modify the size of a Seedsheet if it doesn't fit my garden bed?

Yes! Seedsheets are made of a medium-weight fabric which can be cut with scissors to fit any-sized gardens. Just don't cut the seed pods!

Do I have to puncture the seed pods?

No, as soon as you water your Seedsheet the pods will begin to dissolve. Follow the watering directions in your packaging, or watch this video.

Do I have to pull weeds with a Seedsheet?

Nope! Our weed-blocking fabric lets water through, but not the weeds! There's no need to use herbicides, or spending hours bending over.

Can I grow a Seedsheet indoors?

It depends on the light you have indoors. Plants love sun, so ideally a large south-facing window that receives ~8hours of direct sunlight each day. If not, you can purchase a LED grow light on Amazon for year-round tomato picking!

Do I have to plant in a container, or can I plant directly in the ground?

We recommend planting our Container Seedsheets™ into the fabric containers that we offer. You can however plant them directly onto the ground or a different container if you so choose, providing that you plant into a loose nutrient-rich potting soil. 


 Our 4’x8’ Backyard Seedsheets can certainly be planted directly onto a tilled soil (we suggest amending with compost), however we do recommend that you grow in a raised bed because of their numerous benefits like improved soil drainage, increased soil warming, less weeds, and easier on the back!

Do I have to use herbicides or pesticides?

No! We use sustainable farming principles so that you don’t need to add harmful chemicals to your food. Our Seedsheets™ feature companion planting, where mutually beneficial plants naturally help each other attract pollinators, thwart pests, and improve soil. The weed-blocking fabric prevents sunlight from allowing weeds to germinate and photosynthesize, as well as provides a physical barrier to block their growth, so you don’t have to use any scary herbicides! Eat with confidence!

How long do Seedsheets last in their packaging?

Seedsheets™ will last two years in their packaging, so you can buy now and plant whenever is most convenient for you. They also make fantastic gifts for your favorite foodies! After 2-years in the packaging, the germination rates for the seeds will start to gradually decrease, however because we "plant" multiple seeds in each pod to ensure germination, you will likely still have success well beyond the best-by date.

What are Seedsheets made out of?

The dissolvable pouches are made out of a Certified-Edible PolyVinyl Alcohol film. This material is most commonly used in gel casings for pills, as well as in the laundry pod industry. Everyone always jokes "so it's an actual edible laundry pod!?", and yes, you can safely eat our dissolvable pods, but there's manure in there, so we wouldn't recommend it ;)


The Seedsheet™ is made from a #5 recyclable non-woven polypropylene weed-blocking fabric. It is a flexible, breathable, and perforated fabric, not a black plastic sheet. Water is able to drip through the material, and perforations help airflow to prevent soil mold and root rot. At the end of your garden's life you can recycle the weed-blocking fabric, or save to reuse next season.


The fabric garden container is constructed of BPA-free ♳ PETE, extracted from recycled plastic bottles! The breathable fabric helps the soil drain, and airflow prevents root-circling and results in healthier root systems and ultimately happier plants!

Can I reuse the fabric gardening container?

Yes you can! You can get multiple gardening seasons of use from these containers. They can be hand or machine washed at the end of each season if desired (use a safe organic soap). Before planting in an existing container for an additional season, make sure that you eithere amend the existing soil with an organic all-purpose fertilizer, or replace the soil with a new organic potting mix. 

Is there a money-back guarantee or warrantee?

Unfortunately due to the custom nature of our products, all sales are final. HOWEVER, we want you to enjoy gardening as much as we do, so we do offer a Greenthumb Guarantee and we'll happily replace any pods that fail to germinate free of charge. We only ask that you send an email to support@seedsheets.com and include a photo of your garden so we can help diagnose what went wrong. We have your back!
