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 - hand-picked for sowing in October.
In October we'll be sowing our hardy annual seeds. Start them on your kitchen windowsill, move them outside into a greenhouse, cold frame (we'll show you alternatives if you don't have these) to over-winter, growing strong roots under the ground then springing into action early next year to give early summer blooms. Step-by-step, we'll all grow together.
Ammi visnaga: Tall plants with airy white lacy flowers make the perfect foliage accompaniment to your arrangements. 200 seeds (approx)
Cerinthe: This purple-green foliage coupled with dark purple flowers is totally unique and particularly good as a cut flower when sown in Autumn. 8 seeds (approx)
Malope: Rose, crimson and white trumpets of flowers on long stems. A staple of the cut flower garden. 170 seeds (approx)
Orlaya: Lacy white flowers, these flourish with an Autumn sowing and will give you early summer flowers – a perfect filler flower for your posies. 13 seeds (approx)
Scabiosa: Also known as Pincushion flowers,these lavender flowers on long slender stems are pretty when fresh but their seed heads are also great for drying. 60 seeds (approx)
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.
If you're a Floral Project 'old-timer', you already know how simple the Flower Kits make it to get involved simply with minimal brain-power!
Your October 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.
I hope you decide to grow alongside us in October.
PS. I can only currently supply this to those in the UK (excluding Northern Ireland)
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
