Your postcards

 

This new, winter design is an exclusive collaboration between us and Edinburgh-based illustrator Victoria Rose Ball - so you won't find it anywhere else! Victoria also created our 'Wildflowers in Scotland' postcard, and we're so proud of this beautiful snowdrop illustration in the same botanical style.

 

On the back of the postcard, you'll find an old German folk tale that we came across in our research for this card. It's about kindness, and generosity, about the power of nature and about resilience against all the odds. We hope you like it.

 

These are large, A5 postcards, and we've made sure there's plenty of space left on the back, for any personal message you'd like to write.

 

We know that many people are struggling at the moment, and we're all trying to hold on to the belief that spring will come, along with better times ahead. We hope this postcard is an appropriate representation of that sentiment, and that folk will enjoy receiving it.

 

Your wildflower seeds
 

Help loved ones get through the dark winter months by sending them wildflower seeds to sow in the spring. Use the 'choose your wildflower seeds' dropdown above to select one of the following two wildflower mixes you'd like to accompany your postcards:

 

Cornfield annuals mix: This bright and colourful one-year mix includes five species: Scarlet field poppy, blue cornflower, yellow corn marigold, white corn chamomile and purple corncockle. You can find out more about it here.

 

Bee-friendly Scottish mix: This nectar-rich, bee-friendly Scottish mix contains 24 different types of wildflower species that are perfect for bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects! You can find out more about it here.

  • FURTHER PRODUCT DETAILS

    Our postcards

    All the postcards we sell in our online shop 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 some 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 either Royal Mail Special Delivery service, or 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.

    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.
