FREE WILDFLOWER SEED KITS & AND A SPECIAL YEAR EVENT FOR HUMANS AND NON HUMANS, 
WE KEEP YOU POSTED





                          BUT IF YOU CAN'T WAIT  AND ARE PART OF A SCHOOL :



Did you know that British wild flowers are in danger of extinction?  In the past 70 years we have lost 97% of our wild flower meadows. This loss has changed the look of the British countryside… it’s still green but not half as colourful as it used to be!
The bad news is that losing most of our wild flower meadows has also affected our insects, birds and small mammals. They need pollen, nectar, seeds and leaves to provide them with food and shelter. Without the wild flowers some of our beautiful wild insects and tiny creatures simply can’t survive. And that affects everything.
The good news is that we can reverse the situation by planting the wild flowers that our wild creatures need.
Do you want to do something to help out?
Would you like some free wild flower seeds?
Kew Gardens has joined forces with the Big Lottery Fund to provide free seeds to help get our wild flowers going again.
Their aim is to turn unloved spaces into wildlife friendly havens.
The GROW WILD UK scheme has thousands of free seed kits to give away.There’s an application form on their website and any groups can apply… organisations, community groups and schools.
Each kit has 5 packets of seeds and each packet will cover at least 2 square metres.
Groups can apply for up to 20 seed kits and they will be posted to you in spring 2016.

What’s not to like? You can plant some wild flowers and help our wildlife in the process!
Many British wild flowers are annuals. They grow, flower, set seed then die in the same year. If you’ve never grown them before I can thoroughly recommend them. They are really easy to grow and often flower just 10 to 12 weeks after sowing. Results are fast so they are brilliant for new gardeners and even small children to grow. You can’t go wrong with these flowers!
