Planting pressed flowers

Hello,

After pressing/ drying wildflowers is it possible to plant them? To encourage wildlife in my back garden

Many thanks,
Rosa

Not unless they were seed heads.... then the seeds might grow.

One year, my kids and I made home made valentine cards out of wildflower seeds sandwiched between two layers of crepe paper and also by incorporating seeds in the pulp for home made paper. The cards were meant to be planted in the recipients garden.
