The seeds are viable for a few years so will be OK if you are not using them for a while – just store them somewhere cool and dry out of direct sunlight.

The wildflower seeds are perfect for all sorts of insects.  The seeds have been grown in the UK and are UK species only.

Peacock

Some interesting peacock facts:

  • peacocks are actually known as “pea fowl”. Males are “peacocks”, females are “pea hens” and babies are “pea chicks”
  • a group of pea fowl is known as a harem, whereas a group of females is known as a bevy, a muster, a party or an ostentation
  • peacocks don’t start growing their magnificent tail feathers until the age of 3
  • in the wild they have an average lifespan of 20 years
  • they shed their tail feathers every year
  • when a peacock fans its tail feathers during mating season, the feathers quiver, emitting a low-frequency sound inaudible to human ears. Depending on whether they want to attract females from far away or up close, they can change the sound by shaking different parts of their feathers
  • their tail feathers are known as a train

Give your guests wildflower seeds to give nature a helping hand – they will be rewarded with beautiful wildflowers and more butterflies and bees!
