Just Married Seed Packet Wedding Favour Design 3

£0.99 Inc VAT



RHS Plants for PollinatorsWonderful wedding favours to give to your guests when you have just got married!  They are completely recycled and are personalised with your wedding details – please add these to the Personalisation box above.  They are a great way to get more people growing wildflowers to help the UKs butterflies, bees and other insects – who really do need our help.  They are easy to grow, germinate quickly and flower the same year – useful if someone is a bit impatient for results!

The seed packet is recycled, measures 9 x 12 cm, and there is a choice of two colours – manill and white (please choose from the box above).  The wildflower seeds are grown in the UK without pesticides and are native to the UK.  They will be in a paper sachet inside the packet (not foil and plastic).  The seeds are also viable for a few years so do not need to be planted immediately – just store them somewhere cool and dry out of direct sunlight.

Poppies produce abundant pollen, which is generally very dark in colour. Bumblebees and honeybees in particular seem to like it.  Some reports suggest that poppies may have a bit of a narcotic effect on bees, someone in Germany noting that when his honeybees had been on poppies, they had trouble finding the entrance to their hive!  Hoverflies also really like poppies.
