The act of planting seeds helps us to re-connect to nature. Our new ‘Mindfulness’ seed calendar greets each month with a packet of seeds to sow and an inspirational quote.
This design includes imagery of pressed flowers and collaged illustrations along with 12 individual packets of seeds including the following varieties; Forget-me-not, Corn Marigold, Campion, Marjoram, Meadowsweet, Yarrow, Moon Daisy, Red Clover and more
The flowers (once grown) will work beautifully when pressed or dried, so you can continue to benefit from your blooms for years to come.
The seeds will also attract and help our native wildlife.
