£1.15 Inc VAT

Made in Britain

Description

RHS Plants for PollinatorsLast Chance Animal Rescue is a fantastic rescue with two “branches” in Kent – New Romney and Edenbridge.  Our family have rehomed 2 dogs from them so can tell you first-hand that they love their animals!  They rescue animals of all types, some awaiting destruction in Welsh pounds, others handed in to them for whatever reason, good or bad. They provide medical care, food, shelter and love for them all and ultimately find them loving homes. If for any reason, things do not work out, they always take them back.

By buying these seed packets as your wedding favours you can rest assured that your donations will go towards providing care for dogs, cats and other animals before they find their forever homes.

20p from every Last Chance Animal Rescue seed packet wedding favour sold will go to Last Chance Animal Rescue.  Help the animals, sow the seeds!

The seed packets can be personalised with your names and wedding date (please advise those in the box above), and the seeds inside are a mix of wildflower seeds – helping the butterflies and bees in  your garden! Seed mix is Cornflower, Corn Marigold, Poppy and Corn Chamomile – all British wildflower species, with the seeds being grown in the UK without pesticides.  On the reverse of the packet are the sowing instructions.  The seeds are inside the packet in a paper sachet (not plastic and foil).  If you are not going to use your seed packets for a few months or so, store them somewhere cool and dry out of direct sunlight.  The seeds are viable for a few years.

If you love dogs and cats, then Last Chance is the charity you should support!  Here are the gorgeous doggies we adopted from Last Chance:


Jojo was with us 12  years but sadly and very unexpectedly went over the rainbow bridge in December 2019. We miss her so much.

 

 

 

Tyler is an 8-year old Lurcher whose owner could no longer look after him, so, at the age of 6, he came to live with us.  He is very vocal, liking to chat when excited about going for a walk, coming back from a walk or telling us when it is time for dinner.  He is also head of security for Wildflower Favours

 

Registered charity number is 1002349.

About the Seeds

There are 15 species of wildflower in this mix, although not every packet may have all 15, due to seed distribution.  The seeds are grown in the UK and are UK species only – all of them are amazing for insects!  Seed content is as follows:

Yarrow, Lesser Knapweed, Wild Carrot, Ladies Bedstraw, Rough Hawkbit, Ox-eye Daisy, Ribwort Plantain, Cowslip, Selfheal, Meadow Buttercup, Yellow Rattle, Sorrel, Salad Burnet, White Campion and Red Campion.

This isn’t the same seed mix but just to give you an idea of what your little meadow could look like

Spring and summer

Up to around 60 cm

Perennial, so will flower every year (although may not flower the first year)

Full sun.  If you plant in the sahde they will grow straggly and won’t flower.

Various shades of pink, purple, green, white and yellow

These are very easy to sow!  Find a bare patch of soil in a sunny spot and sprinkle on the seeds.  Gently press them into the soil (no need to cover with more soil) and water.  Keep an eye on them and water again when needed.  Can also be sown in large pots or troughs.
