Description

RHS Plants for PollinatorsChildren love to give their teachers presents, so how about a nice eco-friendly seed packet teacher gift for your child’s teacher to remember them by!

This is a recycled manilla seed packet measuring 9 x 12 cm and personalised with your teacher’s name and your child’s – please advise them in the box above.  We can change the text if you prefer, just let us know in the box above, otherwise the text printed will be a personalised version of that in the photo.

The seeds inside will be in a paper sachet (not foil and plastic) and will be wild Field Forget-me-not (myosotis arvensis).  Field Forget-me-not seeds have been known to lay dormant in the soil for 30 years until suitable conditions arise for them to germinate.  They are pollinated by flies, wasps, bees and ants. 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.

Forget-me-nots are best sown in September.  Sprinkle them onto trays of compost and cover with a light layer of compost.  Water and place somewhere warm and light to germinate.  Once the seedlings are big enough to handle, transfer them to smaller pots and grow on until ready to plant out in spring.

Alternatively scatter them onto bare soil wherever you want them to flower and then let Nature do the rest.

We say to allow 14 days plus delivery time for your order.  It really depends on the time of year and how busy we are.  Orders are also opened in strict order of receipt so please do not put a message on your order form about delivery as it won’t be seen until we get to your order – and by then it might be too late!  If you need your order quite soon or urgently, please call or email us and we will do our best to accommodate your deadline.  Full delivery information can be read here
