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 June.

Foxgloves: (Gloxiniaeflora Mixed) Tall spikes of pastel colours, loved by bees and will return year after year if left to self-seed. 2500 seeds (approx). Biennial: Sow in June or July for early flowers in 2022.

Sweet Rocket: (Violet) Strong stems with clusters of lilac or white four-petalled tiny flowers, this plant is as much loved by bees as people! Biennial: Sow in June or July for early flowers in 2022. 50 seeds (approx)

Nasturtium: (Milkmaid) These pale creamy flowers are quick to germinate create bushy foliage and double and semi-double beautifully scented flowers, perfect for your jam jar posies. Plus you can add them to salads too. Annual: Takes around 90 days from sowing to flowering so will give you late summer flowers this year. 6 seeds (approx)

African Marigold: (Man on the Moon) With beautiful ruffled cream flowers these Marigolds add a touch of elegance to any of your posies and can also be dried. 120 seeds (approx)

Zinnia: (Envy Green) These gorgeous pink-purple flowers on long sturdy stems will create a pop of colour in any of your floral arrangements. Annual: Takes around 80 days from sowing to flowering so will give you late summer flowers this year. 30 seeds (approx)

This month, as you can see, we have a mixture of

1) Annual seeds: sow in June will flower late this summer, and

2) Biennials: sow in June and July, will flower in early Spring 2023. Yes it's time to kick off next year's growing season already and you won't need a greenhouse to over-winter them as all these plants will be started this summer, then planted into the ground before the first frosts where they will spend the winter before flowering early next year. Don't worry, I'll take you with me, step-by-step!

The June Flower Kit will be sent out to your right away with full instructions so we can all grow together - all in our beautiful packaging, which makes it an ideal gift too.

Please note: The June Flower Kit is available at a discount when as part of The Floral Project Starter Kit.

I hope you decide to grow alongside us.

PS. UK Mainland Only

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¬†‚̧ԳŹ¬†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
