Your postcards

this gorgeous illustration is the work of textile designer and illustrator Bethan Janine Westran. What better way to show someone you love them?

You'll find full seed sowing instructions on the back of the postcard - along with plenty of space for a personal message. That means this set is perfect for posting as a birthday or Valentine's Day gift.

Your wildflower seeds

This nectar-rich, bee-friendly Scottish mix contains 24 different types of wildflower species that are perfect for bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects!

 

Here's the 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!

 

This seed mix is perfect for creating a wildflower meadow or area of garden that will support your local wildlife into the future. ​Lots of the species in this mix are perennials, so they should flower year after year. The annual species that are included should bloom first, bringing colour and beauty while the perennials are developing.

Sowing instructions

This seed mix can be sown from August to early October (to flower the following spring) or during March and April (to flower that summer). Store them somewhere cool and dry and sow by May 2021.

Choose a sunny spot. Clear any weeds and loosen the soil, then scatter the seeds over about a metre of earth, pressing or raking them in gently. No need to cover or add compost. Just water regularly!

  • FURTHER PRODUCT DETAILS

    Our postcards

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

    They're all 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 envelopes

    The accompanying envelopes are all made from 100% recycled kraft flecked brown paper, and come with a handy peel and seal strip (so no need to lick!).

    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.

  • DELIVERY INFORMATION

    *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 only sell and ship within the UK. That's because environmental legislation (both in the UK and abroad) makes it quite complicated to send seeds overseas.

    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.
