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 September.

In September we'll be starting to sow our hardy annual seeds. Start them on your kitchen windowsill, move them out into a sheltered spot once they germinate, then plant out into the garden in October where they will 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 majus: Tall plants with airy white lacy flowers make the perfect foliage accompaniment to your arrangements. 200 seeds (approx)

Cornflower: (Double Flowered Mixed) 
Easy to grow, these Cornflowers in pink, white, mauve and blue will flower like crazy and bring pops of colours to all your posies. 55 seeds (approx)

Nigella: (Persian Jewels Mixed) 
Also known as Love-in-a-mist, these unusual star shaped flowers are beautiful when used as fresh flowers in the vase and their seed heads can also be dried. 200 seeds (approx)

Larkspur: (Blue Spire) 
These tall spires with their tiny flowers bring height and elegance to your posies. As they fade, the flowers bring a vintage-y feel – simply breathtaking. 200 seeds (approx)

Corncockle: (Rose) It’s the texture of these flowers that make them so special with their velvety stems and simple flowers. 85 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 September 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.

Please note: The September Flower Kit is also available through our Flower Club for just £12.95.

Free delivery.

I hope you decide to grow alongside us in September. 

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

FAQs

What if I have never gardened before?

That's fine - you'll be amongst many other newbies, you'll get inspired by others further ahead on their journeys in our community and I'll give you full instructions! And in a couple of months, you'll no longer be a newbie!

Do I need a greenhouse?

No, you don't:) We've figured out clever ways to get round the 'not having a greenhouse' problem - mainly by growing the perfect seeds at the perfect time of year.

But you could :)

This blog post and video explain my current set up and alternatives.

Have I left it too late to get involved?

Not at all! There are seeds you can sow every single month of the year for a cut flower garden so any time is a perfect time to get started. This Kit has been designed for anyone who wants to take the first step on their own Floral Project today.

What if I'm an experienced gardener?

We'd love to have your expertise in our community! You might just not be able to source the seeds you want right now, you might have better things to do with your time than figuring out what works best as a cut flower. Our Flower Kits take the thinking out of it for you as we send you everything you need and nothing that you don't.

Do I need a big garden?

No, we have people growing only in pots in their patios and people growing in gardens that are half-an-acre in size. Obviously the more garden you have, the more flowers you can grow but as long as you have a handful of pots or can find a couple of metres of garden bed (or create them!), you'll be able to grow The Floral Project seeds.

What do I need apart from seeds?

Basically, a flower bed or pots that get 6-8 hours sunshine a day (or just light if you live in Scotland!), compost and something to sow your seeds into (which can be as basic as a used yoghurt pot). You might also need flower pots but I'll let you know more (and where to get what you need online) while you wait for your seeds. I do my best to provide the most affordable solutions.

Who do I gift my flowers to?

We'll cover that while you wait to get started - there are plenty of people who don't have much colour in their lives that would love to receive the fruits of your floral efforts - I'll help you find them.

What if I want to grow just for myself?

Of course you can join us! What happened to me is that I started to grow for myself, got hooked, starting finding extra bits of garden to plant in and then quickly realised I had way too many flowers for my own house - and hence the idea to gift my flowers. Whether you're growing just for yourself, for the bees or for others, you are most welcome to join us.

Can I buy a Flower Kit as a gift for a friend?

Yes! What a lovely idea. You can find all our Flower Kits here and just make sure to enter their name and address in the delivery details - we'll send it out to them with full sowing instructions.

Our Story

My name is Nicola Bird and in 2020 I asked my husband for flowers for my birthday. He asked me if I knew the impact of the cut flower industry on the environment.

I didn't so I researched and was so upset by what I learned that I vowed never to ask for flowers again.

But then I realised - what if I grew my own?

I began learning how to sow and grow and created my own cut flower patch to fill mine and my childrens' desks during lockdown.

Soon I had more flowers than we could use, so I decided to donate them to a local charity.

Others saw what i was doing and fell in love with the idea and wanted to do the same.

And so The Floral Project was born.

Sow. Grow. Give.

That's what we do:)
