The seeds for our future

It is just like planting a seed. How a little action can grow and bloom to some amazing, terrific outcomes later. The seeds can be found everywhere, in every generation.

Dear readers,

Coming here on this website, you must wonder why you received the package, and what VPInstruments – as a technology company – is doing with the seeds.

The story started in 1974, when the young student Anton van Putten received a study assignment to make a flow sensor, without knowing that he was inventing the world’s first thermal mass flow sensor in a silicon chip. As they said, “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”, the love of innovation and science stays there in the family. 20 years later, his son Pascal van Putten with the help of other family members, turned Anton’s technology into products for energy savings, which is also the core of VPInstruments nowadays. This tradition now keeps growing, not only within VPInstruments but also spread in our distributors and energy savings community.

It is just like planting a seed. How a little action can grow and bloom to some amazing, terrific outcomes later. The seeds can be found everywhere, in every generation. And we believe, with these seeds in hand, we can create a sustainable future together. For each plant that you grow, we will donate 1 euro to the “Tree for all” fund. Take a photo of your plant and send it to us at marketing@vpinstruments.com.

Please do not hesitate to share with us the photos from your plants. And if you need any helps or have any questions, let us know anytime!

With kind regards,

VPInstruments

How to activate the seeds
For Sweet Basil:
  • Sowing time: Sweet Basil is an annual, easy-to-grow herb that can grow indoor or outdoor. Basil needs nutrient-rich soil that can drain water easily. It’s important to distribute the seeds evenly over the area. To make distributing more easily you can mix the seeds with a little bit of sand. Cover the seeds with a thin layer of dirt (around 0.25 inches thick) to protect yet give them enough room to grow. Keep the soil moist. For indoor sowing, you can sow the seeds anytime, remember place your pot near a well-lit, warm window. For outdoor sowing, you can start 5-6 weeks before the average last frost day in your area.
  • Harvest time: 50 – 60 days after planting, when a branch has 6 to 8 leaves. The more you harvest the leaves, the happier and bushier your basil will be.
For Myosotis (Forget-me-not) flowers:
  • Sowing time: from June until september outside, directly on the desired location. It’s important to distribute the seeds evenly over the area. Be careful: forget-me-not seeds are very small. To make distributing more easily you can mix the seeds with a little bit of sand. Cover the seeds with a thin layer of dirt. Keep the soil moist.
  • Bloom time: next spring.

Tips: Don’t forget to water the plants often. You can use your finger to feel the soil if your plants are thirsty. Giving your plants biofertilizer will help them grow faster. When the weather is too cold outside, you can keep your plants safe with some straw or simply bring them inside.

Together we save the world!

Don’t forget to send a photo of your plant to us and we will donate 1 Euro on your behalf to “Tree for all” fund.
