Introducing ‘Echinacea’ A Gift of Seeds, perfect when healing, positive thoughts and love are in need.  Included as a part of our new ‘Nurture’ range, this will be the perfect gift that is both beautiful and useful.

Echinacea is a purple flower with a prominent central cone, giving it the more common name of ‘Coneflower’. They are loved by pollinators such as honeybees and butterflies, making an attractive addition to a cottage style garden.

After watching your flowers bloom, they make a lovely cut flower, or are also widely used as a medicinal herb.  The herb encourages the immune system (by increasing white blood cells) and reduces symptoms of cold, flus and other illnesses.  The plant label included with each pack includes a simple recipe for making tea with the flowers and leaves.

Plant in free draining soil in a sunny location. Bury seeds as deep as the height of the seed and keep soil moist.

Featuring original artwork by Daniella Germain, the Echinacea Gift of Seeds includes a packet of mixed seeds, a plastic plant label and sowing instructions.

Poppies are beautiful flowers that are easy to grow from seed and should be sown in autumn and winter. Their delicate orange/ red flowers will blossom in late winter and spring.

The seeds should be scattered in a sunny spot and covered with only a very thin layer of soil as they need light to encourage germination.
