I’m not saying this to insult anyone, but I don’t understand the practice of giving wedding guests seeds or trees as favors.
Are there really flowers or trees that grow properly in all regions of the U.S.? What if your guests are from all over? Especially since this stuff is usually marketed as a “green” choice. How green is it to give non-adapted plants to your friends and family?
Does everyone who comes to these weddings have a yard that can fit an additional tree just because someone gave it to them at a wedding? Heck, does everyone at those weddings even have a yard?
My incomprehension does not apply to paper invitations that you can plant. With those, one has the choice of keeping the invite to treasure or planting it if one has space available and one is interested in growing flowers.
