Ox-eye daisies

I posted back in September about the charity Plantlife and the ‘wildflower count’ survey that I took part in. Well Plantlife and the drinks company Belvoir Fruit Farms have joined forces to offer everyone that took part in the survey a free packet of wildflower seeds.

I received my packet last week but I don’t really have anywhere I could sow them so I thought I’d offer them up to you. The packet of seeds contains Meadow Buttercup, Oxeye Daisy, Red Campion, Selfheal and Salad Burnet. These are all perennials. The packet comes with a leaflet on how and where to grow.

The only stipulations are that you are in the UK and the seeds must be grown in a garden and not sown in the wild.

I’ll set a closing date of Friday 24th November 6pm and if anyone is interested just leave a message with this post. If there’s more than one person then I’ll put the names in a hat and draw one name out and then send you the seeds.

Anyone who is interested in wildflowers should take a look at the Oxonian Gardener blog. Petra has written 2 parts of a 3 part series of posts about wildflowers including an interview with Sarah Raven.
