Watch it grow: Desktop’s Postcarden

To help us get excited and prepared for the Green June issue of Desktop, our friends at Third Drawer Down have sent us our very own Postcarden to grow and look after. “A what?”, you say. A Postcarden, dur! Combining gift and greeting card, Postcarden is a fun and simple pop-out card that transforms into a mini living garden.

Over the next few days/weeks, we will be documenting the growth of our Postcarden. It’s just like watching grass grow – literally. Except it’s cress and we get to eat it at the end. Stay tuned!

If you want your own Postcarden, you can buy them online, there are 3 garden options – Botanical, City and Allotment.
