It’s so important that children learn about Nature and the interconnectedness of it all – us, wildflowers, animals, insects etc. Children need to learn about wildflowers and how species of insect depend on them. Wildflowers also encourage biodiversity and you can make your garden more biodiverse by sowing a patch of wildflowers, no matter how small.
Each manilla paper seed packet is completely recycled, made from quality 115 gsm paper, and measures 9 x 12 cm. The reverse of the packet details the seeds inside and the sowing instructions. The seeds inside are in a paper sachet (not foil and plastic). If you are not using the seeds for a while, they are viable for a few years and are easy to store by keeping them somewhere cool and dry out of direct sunlight.
