This gorgeous wallflower is a deep ruby red colour and produces clusters of fragrant blossoms on sturdy stalks. Each flower head is composed of a large number of separate blossoms, which contributes to the overall attractiveness of the flowers. Early in the year, at the same time when tulips are coming into bloom (March through May), blooms are produced on this plant. Ruby Red has dark buds that open to reveal magnificent flowers that range from brilliant crimson to violet. They are attractive as a cut flower in addition to being very useful in the garden, where they can be planted in a border with tulips and other spring flowers like forget-me-nots.
The finest results can be achieved by cultivating these in a row in the cutting patch, as bedding plants, or in bold groupings in a mixed border when they are exposed to direct sunlight. All wallflowers are quite simple to cultivate and very productive, meaning that you will get a lot of flowers for a relatively small investment of time, money, and effort.

Sow Seeds When the soil is warm, which should be between the end of May-July, sow seeds outside in a seedbed that has been thoroughly prepared. You can also choose to sow the seeds indoors in modules, but make sure to keep them in the shade and maintain moderate temperatures. The heat will hinder the germination process of wallflowers. Provide a moist and shaded environment for the seed trays. 7–14 days to germinate at 15–18℃. Grow it for another 6 weeks, and then plant it outside in late August or early September.
Plant Out After the last frosts
Flowers March onwards
Height & Spread 45cm high x 30cm spread

Beautifully box of biennial seeds. I haven’t sown them yet but I’m looking forward to doing so. Delivered promptly and the packaging is all recyclable and so prettily presented with two cute strawflowers inside. Thank you
Ordered a couple of chilli varieties that I hadn’t found anywhere else. They arrived within just a couple of days (I’m in Kent) and included an extra package of seeds as a “thank you” which I thought was such a lovely touch, thank you! Very excited to get growing 😊
From the moment the cute seed box arrives at your door, until the seedling pop up to say hello...they never disappoint. I've purchased a few different boxes of seeds and know they'll not be my last! Thank you 🐞🌸
I already have baby craspedia seedlings and can't wait to see them grow. I bought a couple of craspedia plants last year and they produce the most lovely yellow pom poms. They look great dotted in three's around the house and I also use them when I make dried wreaths.
This was gifted to my mum for her birthday and she loves it. You've got everything you need for flower pressing, including all instructions.
Nicely packaged and fast delivery
One of our favourites in the range. Balanced subtle tones, good burn time and will definitely buy again. Matt

Top quality seeds and so beautifully presented - I bought them for myself but it was like receiving a gorgeous gift!
Great service, prompt delivery and beautifully packaged. It was for a gift so not tried them but they look lovely.
I am happy to give a 5 star review for Bishy Barnabee’s Cottage Garden Flower and Herb Box.
I loved receiving the beautiful package of seeds, with some dried flowers enclosed and not an ounce of plastic in sight!
All thoughtfully eco friendly wrapped.
The delivery was super quick and I’m working my way through sewing the seeds, on the monthly instructions contained on each packet.
I think any of the seed boxes would make a beautiful gift or why not treat yourself!
I’ll certainly be buying more as I expand my cut flower garden 🌸🐞
Another beautifully presented gift box of seeds delivered quickly and professionally presented. I bought as a gift for a friend who was delighted. I will definitely be back again.
I was so pleased to receive this box of seeds, beautifully presented with a lovely little dried flower to add a special touch, thank you, can’t wait to get started on sowing them .
I can’t rate these seeds highly enough! Germination was super fast and baby plants are lovely and strong. Looking forward to a flower filled 2023 , and will definitely be ordering lots more goodies from Bbcg x
