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

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

Borage:  This herb is loved by bees and produces edible blue flowers and leaves on hairy stems. Perfect foliage for your posies and self-seeds profusely. 50 seeds (approx)

Icelandic Poppy: (Excelsior Mixed) Beautiful splashes of colour to be woven into any posy or jam jar arrangement. If sown Spring they should flower the same year then produce flowers again the following year. 400 seeds (approx)

Evening Scented Stock: (Lavender Pink) With four-petalled mauve flowers that open in the evening to give off a beautiful scent, make sure to plant some under a window just for you as well as adding to your cut flower patch. 225 seeds (approx)

Sunflower Lemon Queen: Soft lemon-yellow flowers - this is a branching variety of sunflower and makes an excellent cut flower. This is a bushy perennial plant so will flower year after year - great for the back of a border. 10 seeds (approx)

Cosmos Purity: Airy white flowers and the more you cut, the more they grow Cosmos is the most productive plant in any cut flower patch and a great filler flower or perfect as a bunch all by itself. 75 seeds (approx)

These are all seeds that we'll sow either directly into the garden or under cover initially then plant out into the garden at the end of March or after the last frosts.

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 on 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 March Flower Kit will be sent out to you right away with full instructions - all in our beautiful packaging, which makes it an ideal gift too.

Postage and packaging is included.

Please note, the March Flower Kit is also available as part of The Flower Club - where you'll receive a discounted price for these seeds.

I hope you decide to grow alongside us in March.

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
