Fabulous biennials! Gorgeous, nostalgic, and often scented; these flowers are completely perfect for a relaxed, cottage-style type of planting and are a total game changer if you want to extend your flowering season.

A little sowing in midsummer will give you a head start in the flower garden and will provide you with blooms from early spring until your autumn sown annuals to burst into life and the baton is passed on. Biennials are also invaluable to bees who are about early in the year, providing much-needed nourishment.

I used to have a hard time understanding biennials...why would you want to sow something that sounded as though it would take two years to flower, where's the fun in that?!

But actually, all it means is that you sow in midsummer to flower the following hardship at all!

In fact, sowing seeds and knowing you have next year's spring flowers underway will fill you with quiet satisfaction and then when they spring into life early in the season and you are immersed in colour, scent, and happiness, you'll be so glad you took a little time in June to sow them.

This beautiful box contains 8 gorgeous biennial varieties to make your garden sing in the spring!

It comes recommended by experienced cut flower growers Sophie and Helier for use in their online seed sowing flower courses


 Foxglove Alba....Adding elegance with its tall spires of elegant white flowers

Sweet William...A lovely mix of bi-coloured flowers which will bloom for months 

Aquilegia Nora Barlow.... with gorgeous double blooms that open from pale green to pink and then fade to white towards the tips of the petals 

Hesperis...Fabulous and scented, Hesperis lasts well in a vase and the bees adore it.

Canterbury Bells...Traditional, bell-shaped flowers in blue, pink, and white.

Honesty...The flower that keeps on giving! First up the enchanting purple and white early flowers followed by (if left to go to seed) the magical, translucent seed pods to use in dried flower arrangements.

Hollyhock Nigra.....The quintessential cottage garden flower. Tall, statuesque, full of nostalgic gorgeousness and in a rich, deep purple (almost black) colour 

Wallflower Fair Lady...Deliciously scented and in rusty, pastel hues
