The future of the planet is in the hands of our children. It is so important they learn to respect the environment and look after nature. Our wildflower seeds party bag is a great start! Kids party bags are often full of plastic (which is usually thrown away by the next day!) and sweets. A packet of seeds is so much better and a great introduction to honing an interest in growing seeds for nature. The hope is children will find it fascinating how such a tiny seed can grow into a flower or food they can eat.
Each 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). They are also grown in the UK and are native UK species. 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.
