What have I given you?
Each envelope contains a small selection of wildflower seeds, including poppies (klatschmohn), cornflowers (kornblume) and field marigolds (acker-ringelblume). They are non-invasive and native so can be safely grown anywhere.
Where should you grow them?
Anywhere! In a windowbox, on a balcony, outside near the traffic lights or anywhere else you pass regularly that has reasonable sunlight, water and is not too trodden on. Scatter and loosely cover with soil, watering in well.
They should flower this summer.
If you have success with you seeds, I would love if you could send me a photo of your flowers.

Kind thanks to Anne Breimaier for the image of her cornflowers (Kornblumen) overlooking the streets of Berlin.
