1. CORNFIELD ANNUALS MIX - 100% WILDFLOWER SEED

 

This wildflower mix - with iconic species like poppy and cornflower - is full of bright, primary colours. Its high visual impact means it's a popular choice for giving to children.

Cornfield annuals mix is one of the most affordable 100% wildflower seed mixes around - so it can be perfect for groups trying to engage large numbers of people on a limited budget. Just remember that annuals complete their life cycle in a single growing season, and are unlikely to re-grow year after year.

Full species list: Field poppy, blue cornflower, corn marigold, corn chamomile and corncockle.

When to sow: Can be sown during autumn (to flower the following spring), or during spring (to flower that summer).

Price: £140 for 50 seed packets + postcards of your choice. Includes postage and packing. 

2. BEE-FRIENDLY SCOTTISH MIX - 100% WILDFLOWER SEED

 

This wildflower mix contains 24 species that are brilliant sources of nectar and shelter for bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects.  

It includes lots of perennial plants, which will come back year after year, so it's perfect for creating a long-lasting wildflower meadow or area of garden. It also includes some annual species, that will bloom first and bring colour and visual appeal while the perennials are developing. 

This is an excellent mix to invest in if you're looking to support your local wildlife and make a long-term environmental difference.

Full species list: Cornflower, corn marigold, mayweed, teasel, viper's bugloss, weld, yarrow, clustered bellflower, common knapweed, field scabious, meadow cranesbill, wood cranesbill, rough hawkbit, ox-eye daisy, wild marjoram, selfheal, red campion, ragged robin, white campion, bladder campion, hedge woundwort, red clover, tufted vetch and bush vetch. Phew!

3. SINGLE SPECIES: POPPY

 

The field poppy (also known as common poppy) is such a popular and iconic wildflower - and for good reason. Instantly recognisable, it's perhaps the most enduring symbol of remembrance.

 

The perfect accompaniment to our 'Edinburgh poppies at sunset' postcard.

When to sow: Can be sown during autumn (to flower the following spring), or during spring (to flower that summer).  

Price: £150 for 50 seed packets + postcards of your choice. Includes postage and packing. 

4. SINGLE SPECIES: CORNFLOWER

 

One of the most cheerful, vigorous wildflowers around. With their gorgeously intense colour, even a small patch of cornflowers will pack a big visual punch! Cornflowers grows quickly and easily in most sunny spots, and should attract plenty of bees, too.

Particularly good for children, as their petals are edible. They can be frozen into ice cubes, or used to make extra-fancy sugar cubes!

When to sow: Can be sown during autumn (to flower the following spring), or during spring (to flower that summer).  

Price: £140 for 50 seed packets + postcards of your choice. Includes postage and packing. 

5. SINGLE SPECIES : SUNFLOWER

 

OK, so we know this one isn't technically a wildflower (not a native one, anyway!). In fact, sunflowers originated in the Americas, and are thought to have first been domesticated in what is now Mexico, around 2100 BC.

 

However, sunflower seeds are so perfect for children that we wanted to include them in our offering. 

Sunflowers are easy to grow and famously, get very tall - the world record currently stands at 30 feet! The seeds provide food for birds, and the flowers are a popular source of nectar for bees.

When to sow: Can be sown in pots indoors from April to May - then planted out in the garden from early June, when the risk of frost has passed.

Price: £130 for 50 seed packets + postcards of your choice. Includes postage and packing.
