Want to grow your own cut flowers to fill your own house and give to others?

In this Flower Kit, I've kept it simple by selecting seeds for five of the easiest-to-grow, perfect cut flowers for the vase and posies to give away - four of them hand-picked for sowing in January - and one to sow in the Spring.

Godetia (Carmine Glow): Also known as Farewell-to-Spring, each plant will provide a succession of up to a dozen stems of deep pink silky shimmering bowl-shaped flowers. 170 seeds (approx)

Gypsophila (Covent Garden White): Also known as Baby’s Breath, these clouds of tiny white flowers are a perfect filler for your bouquets and posies. 250 seeds (approx)

Carnation (Grenadin Mixed): Clove-scented large flowers in dark red, scarlet, golden-yellow, white and rose. Long stiff stems means these are perfect for the vase (and butterflies love them too). 60 seeds (approx)

Cynoglossum (Blue): Also known as Chinese Forget-Me-Not, these small clouds of indigo-blue flowers are a perfect filler for your bouquets and posies. 60 seeds (approx)

These are all hardy annual and perennial seeds that we'll sow in January, let them grow slowly over the winter while they put on strong roots, then plant out into the garden at the end of March.

The good news is you can also save some of each packet to sow again in Spring - ensuring flowers extending right the way through the summer.

Gomphrena (Strawberry Fields): Bright red pops of colour with these spherical flowers. Great to mix with dahlias, celosia and cosmos. Can also be dried and used in arrangements. 40 seeds (approx). This one we'll sow in March and put out in the garden at the end of May/start of June.

If you're just starting out with The Floral Project, this is the easiest way to get started. Sidestep the overwhelm, the 'Which seeds do I sow when?' question and grow alongside all our other Floral Project members sowing exactly the same high quality seeds as you - and cheering your progress as they grow:)

I'll provide instructions so you know exactly what to do with them and then as each seed becomes a seedling, and a flower ready to cut and put into jam jar posies and bouquets to fill our houses and give away, we'll all be doing it together.

The January Flower Kit will be sent out to you in the first week of January with full instructions - all in our beautiful packaging, which makes it an ideal gift too.

Postage and Packing is included.

I hope you decide to grow alongside us in January.

This Flower Kit is dedicated to June Mary.

PS. I can only currently supply this to those in the UK.

P.P.S. We do reserve the right to place any of the seeds above with a suitable alternative if growers run out of stock.

"I received my Flower Kit yesterday and it was the most beautiful thing I ever received - thank you Nic ❤️ I live in Cornwall and I have a smallish garden but I am on a waiting list for an allotment so my fingers are crossed that when the time is right, I will be able to have more space to grow flowers. I do not consider myself a gardener- I have always bought plants rather than grown from seed but since lockdown we have started a small vegetable patch and I'm keen to extend this for flowers. I may have to get a bit more creative for space but oh well! The idea of giving flowers makes me so happy. Thank you Nicola for this beautiful opportunity and I love and appreciate seeing all of your photos everyone. The flowers are looking stunning." - Kate
