What's your favourite part of Scotland? Is there an awe-inspiring place you're not able to get to just now?

 

For many folk, the islands of the Outer Hebrides - with their stunning beaches and unique biodiversity - are high on the list.

 

The postcard in this new 'Scotland the Beautiful' 5-pack gift set features a photograph of Hebridean harebells nodding in the breeze, with Luskentyre beach on the Isle of Harris in the distance.

 

A wee joy for anyone who loves Scotland and can't wait to explore it once again.

 

This pack contains the following items:

 

  • Five large (A5) postcards - 'Harebells dancing in the Outer Hebrides'
  • Five packets of cornfield annuals wildflower mix with full sowing instructions
  • Five manila brown envelopes
  • Free UK shipping included
  • 10% goes into our 'good causes' seed giveaway fund

 

Your postcards - 'Harebells dancing in the Outer Hebrides'

 

Legend has it that fairies live amongst these delicate flowers. Also known as Scottish bluebells, harebells are also loved by bees.

Your wildflower seeds - cornfield annuals

 

This gorgeously bright native wildflower mix is made up of species traditionally found in cornfields: Field poppy (scarlet), cornflower (blue), corn marigold (yellow), corn chamomile (white and yellow), and corncockle (purple).

 

Sow March-May for summer flowers, or August-early October for flowers the following spring. You can find out more about cornfield annuals mix here.

  • 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 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.
