A lovely cottage garden flower seed kit which makes an ideal gift. The kit includes four packets of annual flowers which bloom from May until October. The vibrant colours mix well together to create a jewel garden. Just add some evergreen shrubs and annual bulbs to create a beautiful border for year round colour and interest.
Each kit includes:
4 x Packets of seeds – Cosmos, Calendula, Catmint/Nepeta and Nigella/Love in a mist;
4 x wooden plant markers;
pencil and postcard with a lovely quote by Audrey Hepburn.
It is all packaged in a stylish kraft A5 size string & washer envelope which will easily fit through a UK size letter box.
commonly known as pot marigolds and are loved by bees. Sow indoors February-April. Sow outdoors March to June or August to October (later sowings mean the flowers will bloom the following year). They grow to around 60cm tall and will flower from May to October if you dead-head them regularly.
commonly known as catmint or catnip. Sow indoors January to April or outdoors April to June in a sunny spot. They have pretty blue flowers that bloom from June to September and grow to around 70cm tall
Sow outdoors March to May in a sunny border (or pot) and they will flower from May to September. The seed pods look lovely too, however, they will self seed which means free flowers the following year. Nigella will grow to around 45cm tall and are also loved by bees.
Another annual flower loved by butterflies and bees. This variety grows to around 40-60cm tall and will look fabulous in the middle/front of the border next to the lupins to create more texture. They will flower from June to October (or first frosts) as long as you dead-head regularly. They have pretty pink flowers.
The wooden plant labels will enable you to mark out where your seeds are in the border to make them easily identifiable and ensure you don’t dig them up by mistake thinking you have lots of weeds!
All seeds can be simply scattered directly into the soil to make the growing process very simple.
The seeds are provided by Fothergills and are in foil wrapped sachets. Each seed envelope has sowing instructions.
