Willsow the Worlds first Plantable Book
Willsow books as seen on Dragons Den, they are the first of their kind. Never have you been able to read a book, plant a page and grow real vegetables, meaning you can meet the main character!
Dragon’s Den panellist Sara Davies MBE has bought a 15 per cent stake in Leicester based Willsow Books – agreeing to put £20,000 into the business.
Willsow, which picked up a 2020 Leicestershire Innovation Award, makes traditional kids books with a difference – once children have finished reading them they cut off the back cover and plant them.
Each book tells the story of a vegetable or herb and the cover is impregnated with 500 seeds that grow into plants such as carrots, parsley, dill, basil and lettuce.
Willsow Books aim is to educate Children & Adults alike that we can all do more for the environment. There is always a way to make recyclability fun.
As well as seeds, all the books are made from a variety of sources such as schools and business to help save trees and reduce waste sent to landfills.
We do hope that you grow the love that we have for Willsow books.
