A lovely seed gift which will provide cottage garden style flowers from April until October
These seeds have been chosen because they are loved by bees! They make an Ideal gift for Teachers, Mothers Day, Father's Day, birthdays or a simple 'thank you gift' for someone special.
Each seed gift includes:
* 4 x Packets of seeds – Forget-me-nots, Cosmos, Foxglove and dwarf Lupins;
* 4 x wooden plant markers;
* pencil and
* postcard with a lovely quote by Audrey Hepburn.
It is all packaged in a stylish kraft A5 size string & washer envelope which will easily fit through a UK size letter box. The envelopes are printed by hand so there will be variation in print quality
Lupin – this particular variety grows to around 40cm tall and is ideal for the front of a sunny border. It has white, pink and blue flowers. By sowing seeds over several weeks it can provide a continual show of flowers from June to October.
Foxglove – they are a mixed colour and look best in the back of the border to add some height, colour and texture. They will grow to around 90-120cm tall and will flower from May to June. They are biennial which means they will flower in the second year after planting. They are happy in a sunny or shady border and may self seed which means free plants the following year.
Cosmos – another annual flower loved by butterflies and bees. This variety grows to 40cm tall and will look fabulous in the middle/front of the border, next the Lupins to create more texture. They will bloom from June to October (or first frosts) and have pretty pink and rose coloured petals which fade to white as they mature.
Forget-me-nots have blue flowers from April to June. They look lovely with tulips in pots or the border. They grow to around 30cm tall and will self seed.
The seeds can be simply scattered directly into the soil to make the growing process very simple - each pack includes specific and easy to follow instructions.
The wooden plant labels will enable you to mark out where your seeds are in the border to make them easily identifiable and ensure you don’t dig them up by mistake thinking you have lots of weeds!
The seeds are foil wrapped and are provided by Fothergills seeds.
You could include an optional bird feeder to your gift for an additional cost - there are a choice of two designs, a house or heart shape. Made from galvanised steel in cream colour only. Simply add an apple or fruit of your choice and hang from a tree.
The envelope is A5 size
