Holiday Gift Packs
Seeds are a perfect gift for anyone who has a patch of soil -dirt, ground, wasteland, backyard, whatever you want to call it, even a pot that soil can be placed in. Seeds are for everyone. This year give the gift that does keep on giving. It grows before your eyes from a tiny seedling into a large and beautiful plant. Yes it takes a little work but not much. Seeds need to be planted and watered but in most cases once they are growing they don't need much attention except a little water and definitely water if there is a drought. For most of our holiday packs we have selected seeds that don't need much attention making it super easy to be grown and enjoyed. The best part is that this gift keep on giving. It provides beauty in the form of flowers, and aroma. Then depending on which pack you choose either herbal health in the from of fresh herbs for direct use or in teas. Attraction of butterflies, bees and humming birds in our pollinator collection. For those who want some color in their garden with little fuss we have the mow it down garden collection, and for those with no garden we have the pot plant collection where they can grow pretty aromatic and edible plants in pots or a window box.

Pollinators PackFor those who want to help protect the pollinators. The plants in this selection have been specifically selected for their high nectar and pollen production. These plants once mature can feed a large number of insects, especially butterflies, bees and hummingbirds. This gives them the energy to increase their numbers while offering the grower the enjoyment of watching the butterflies and appreciating the flowers. Plants have been selected that flower at different times of the year so that nectar and pollen is available for the maximum amount of time. If planted in one section of a garden they can be enjoyed all year around then, cleared up by mowing the stalks down either at the end of the year or more helpfully in spring before the new shoots arise as this allows the insects to overwinter and increase their numbers. Little other work is needed unless you want to. This gives the garden owner more time as less mowing in needed and less emissions from the lawn mower are required. More Information
