Your postcards

The beautiful artwork on this postcard was created exclusively for Seeds of Hope Scotland by illustrator and designer Victoria Rose Ball.

 

It depicts 16 species of wildflower that you might find in Scotland today - from iconic species like poppy and cornflower, to lesser-known gems like thrift and wild pansy.

 

Each species is named, so you can use the postcards as identification guides or educational tools.

 

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 gift to a loved one.

 

Colour-in postcards included!

We're delighted to include a 'colour-in' version of the postcard in every pack! The perfect wee gift for children or adults.

Your wildflower seeds

The bright and colourful flowers in this 'cornfield annuals', 100% wildflower mix include two of the species depicted on the postcard - scarlet poppies and powder-blue cornflowers. The other types of flower included are corn marigold, corn chamomile and corncockle - so five species in total.

This mix is perfect if you're looking for a really bright and cheerful display of primary colours that will bloom relatively quickly. These are annual species, so they will flower for a single year, then die back.

Sowing instructions

 

These seeds 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 your 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 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.

    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.

    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.
