Rainbows are full of happiness and hope (ie, hope there may be a pot of money at the end??). Our rainbow seed packets contain wildflower seeds to create a rainbow of colour for the butterflies and bees – shades of green purple, yellow, pink and yellow.The seeds are inside the packet in a paper sachet (no plastic or foil in our seed packets!)
Each packet measures 9 x 12 cm and is made from recycled manilla paper or pale blue FSC certified paper. Please choose colour during the ordering process. The sowing instructions and seed content are on the back of the packet. The seeds are viable for a few years, so if you are not using for a while, simply store them somewhere cool and dry out of direct sunlight.
These are probably our most popular design because they are perfect for any event – such as weddings, kids parties, promotional events, giveaways, to put inside letters and cards, etc. The seeds are UK species and are grown in the UK without the use of chemicals.
By giving these seed packets as gifts, you are helping the environment and our declining bee and butterfly populations – grow the love and Nature will love you back!
“These are beautiful little gifts that we have given to 75 keyworkers so far, each recipient was overwhelmed and really loves them. We added a personal message and love giving them out. They are well made, good size envelopes and really spreads some happiness. It’s a gift that keeps on giving; from the recipients who have all been happy, to the bees and because Wildflower-favours are an incredible company who also plant trees! Love these seed packets and have ordered 150 more along with placing an order for work. I’m sure we will continue to purchase more. HIGHLY recommend!” (To read more of our lovely customer reviews, click the Review tab below)
