Save the Date Seed Packet

£1.20 Inc VAT

Description

Great way for guests to remember your wedding date – Save the Date seed packet: sowing the seeds and seeing the flowers will be a reminder of your big day!

The seed packet is made from recycled manilla paper and measures 9 x 12 cm, containing British meadow wildflower and grass seeds – perfect for attracting butterflies, bees and other insects.  Please advise your personalisation details in the box above,  Each recycled seed packet comes with a recycled envelope too so you can easily post to your guests.  The meadow seeds are of British provenance and have been grown in the UK without chemicals.  There is a vast array of species included and sowing instructions are printed on the back of the packet.  The seeds are in a paper sachet – not plastic and foil sachets in our products!  They also come with a recycled envelope ready for you to send to your guests. The seeds are also viable for a few years so if you are not using them imminently, just store them somewhere cool and dry out of direct sunlight.

Meadow areas, even little patches such as from this packet of seeds, will benefit wildlife enormously.  Butterflies, bees, moths, hoverflies and all sorts of other bugs will visit, and birds will come a-calling for the seeds when flowering is over.
