Default Free Wildflower Seeds *EXPIRED*

https://countryfile.growwildukseeds.com/

Only one application for a free seed pack is available per household.

Countryfile is working with Kews Grow Wild campaign to give away 230,000 packets of wild flower seeds. Theres been a dramatic decline in the number of wild flowers in the UK over the last century and Kews campaign aims to make everyone aware of their importance to wildlife and the human food chain. The packs are full of seeds for native wild flowers, and there are different versions for Scotland, Ireland and England & Wales. This week, on the programme, Ellie gets a sneak preview of the packs and shows you how to plant them in your own garden or even in an old pair of wellies.

I have pathways near my house with overgrown grassy banks - would look so much better with a few wildflowers, so intend to spread the seeds here.

Thats a very good point, I learnt that the hard way a couple of years ago and I still cant get rid of them.

Has anyone received a packet yet?
It was only a sunny smile, and little it cost in the giving, but like morning light it scattered the night and made the day worth living.

Both my Mom and myself tried to get some of these, both of us had the successful message but so far neither of us have had anything.
