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 eight of the easiest-to-grow cut flowers, perfect for the vase and for posies to give away - all hand-picked for sowing in July and early August.

In the Biennial Flower Kit, we kick off the 2022 flowers by sowing biennial seeds. We sow them now, plant them out into the garden in September where they will overwinter and burst into flower early next year.

Wallflowers: (Fair Lady Mixed) Clouds of beautifully scented faded orange, yellow and red flowers on woody stems. 425 seeds (approx)

Sweet William: (Tall Double Mixed) Fragrant yet hardy, these biennials are a staple of any cut flower patch – their pink, purple and white flowers are so pretty in the vase. 135 seeds (approx)

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)

Californian Poppy: (Mixed) Quick and easy to grow, these orange, yellow, pink and white flowers and feathery foliage are perfect for jam jar arrangements and will flower all summer long. 95 seeds (approx)

Canterbury Bells: (Double Mixed) Also known as bellflower these flowers create heads full of pink, blue, purple and white bells loved by flower-growers and insects alike. 400 seeds (approx)

Honesty: (Violet) Beautiful purple flowers from early spring. Honesty is also known as lunaria and the reference to the moon is demonstrated by the beautiful seed pods these flowers make as they die back. These can be dried and go from green to beautiful silver so can be used in dried flower arrangements too. Biennial: Sow in June or July for early flowers in 2022. 25 seeds (approx)

Californian Poppy: (Carmine King) Quick and easy to grow, these pink flowers and feathery foliage are perfect for jam jar arrangements and will flower all summer long. They are cut and come again flowers so perfect for The Floral Project. Biennial: Sow in June or July for early flowers in 2022. 95 seeds (approx)

Sweet Rocket: (Purple) 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. 250 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 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 Biennial Flower Kit will be sent out to you right away with full instructions so we can all grow together - all in our beautiful packaging, which makes it an ideal gift too.

I hope you decide to grow alongside us.

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
