  • A5 colour postcard, with learning facts about sunflowers 
  • A5 activity postcard - colour-in sunflower and bird bingo! 
  • Manila brown envelope
  • Free UK shipping included
  • 10% goes into our 'good causes' seed giveaway fund


Your sunflower seeds (15-20 seeds)


Sunflowers are easy to grow and famously, get very tall - the world record currently stands at just over 30 feet!


The seeds provide food for birds, and the flowers are a popular source of nectar for bees.


The variety we currently provide is Giant Yellow Single - a lovely, traditional type of sunflower suited to children's growing competitions.


Sow your sunflower seeds April-May. You can find out lots more about our sunflower seeds and how to grow them right here.

A5 colour postcard

This postcard features a very cute and bright sunflower by graphic designer Marceline Smith, of Asking for Trouble.


On the reverse we've added lots of interesting facts about sunflowers, so children and adults can learn more about them. There's also plenty of space to include a personal message.


A5 activity postcard


This double-sided activity postcard is packed with stuff to keep children occupied.


On the front there's a black and white sunflower for them to colour in themselves - and on the back there's a 'bird bingo' game.


See how many of the birds you can spot on your daily walk, or in your garden. When you find one, choose a colour you like and fill in the box!

Grow your own sunflowers - seed activity set

How many sets would you like?

    Our postcards

    All the postcards in our individual gift sets are extra-large, A5 size - that's 21cm x 14.8cm.

    They're printed on uncoated, bright white 380gsm card. That means they're nice and sturdy, and perfect for writing on with any sort of pen.

    Our seeds

    We source all our seeds from a small network of trusted Scottish / UK suppliers.

    We use seed-proof, hand-filled glassine paper seed packets for all our wildflower seeds. Glassine paper is 100% plastic-free, fully recyclable and biodegradable. This approach means we can also avoid the foil-sealed sachets many seed companies use, which are sadly not able to be recycled.

    The clear cello bags we use to protect your items are also plant-based and 100% biodegradable.

    Visit our environmental policies page to find out more!


    *We offer free shipping on all items*

    Shipping services

    Smaller items are shipped via Royal Mail's standard 1st Class postal service. Larger orders are shipped via Parcelforce, with items fully tracked to their destinations.

    We post your items within 24 hours whenever possible, and always within three working days.

    Shipping destinations

    We currently sell and ship our items to people in Scotland, England and Wales. Sadly, due to new export regulations following Brexit, we are are no longer able to deliver to Northern Ireland. We very much hope this will change in the future.

    Protecting your items in transit

    Your items will be carefully packaged and fully protected in transit. We take our environmental responsibilities very seriously, and don't use any plastic in our packaging.

    We've replaced parcel tape with brown paper tape, bubble wrap with tissue paper, jiffy bags with cardboard boxes or brown paper, and polystyrene 'peanuts' with GM-free starch-based loose fill, which is 100% biodegradable and compostable.

    Visit our environmental policies page to find out more!


    We take our customers' expectations extremely seriously, and it's really important to us that you are completely happy with your purchase.

    If your item arrives damaged, or not as described, you are entitled to a full refund. Please let us know straight away by emailing photos to hello@seedsofhope.scot.

    If you change your mind once you’ve received your item, we offer a 14 day, no-quibble returns period. In this case, the item needs to be returned to us in new condition and all its original packaging. You will also need to pay the return postage cost.
