Thank you for your interest in our seed kits. Due to overwhelming interest, applications have now closed. You can still view our Terms and Conditions.

Didn't get the chance to apply this year?

Why not sign up for our wildflower growing advice? We'll send you regular email with tips and tricks so you can still join in and Grow Wild with us this spring.

Spring brings with it the promise of transformation…

..And every year, in spring, Grow Wild sends thousands of free UK native wildflower seed kits all over the UK to help people transform outdoor spaces, from window boxes to disused sites, with beautiful blooming colour. We also raise awareness of the benefits that these amazing native species have for our natural world, and the ways in which growing them can bring us together (albeit digitally at the moment) and support our own wellbeing. After all, we’re part of nature too!

This past year has been so very different for most of us, and relentlessly challenging in unexpected and various ways. We’re by no means at the end of the journey yet, but at Grow Wild we believe that even small joys can spark hope, so we wanted to do something a little different with our kits this year.

Free wildflower seed kits for our key workers

Our amazing key workers continue to work long hours under very demanding circumstances to keep us all safe and well during the pandemic. We're so grateful for everything they do, and so to express our thanks we’ve decided to offer them the chance to apply for a seed kit, which will hopefully bring them some colour, joy and respite over the months to come.

You really don’t need any experience at all to get growing!

Sowing wildflower seeds and watching them grow is a low-effort, high-reward activity for even the most un-green-fingered amongst us, and you can grow them pretty much anywhere: in containers, gardens, or unloved urban spaces. Lots of studies have demonstrated the wellbeing benefits of burying our hands in the soil, too.

Want to learn more?

Take a look at our video which shows how growing wildflowers has impacted the wellbeing of people all over the UK who received our seed kits in previous years. In our blog, we also take a look at the ways we can learn from plant behaviour to be more mindful, even when we can't get outside.

Key workers only, please

We only have a limited number of kits, and applications will be open for a short time. This year the kits really are only for our key workers – so please don’t apply unless you meet the criteria.  If you qualify and are interested, make sure you apply quickly – we don’t want you to miss out! Kit or no kit, if you apply, we’ll keep in touch and walk you through what tools and resources you will need, where to buy wildflower seeds, how to prepare the soil, how to sow and what to look out for, so you can still grow-along with us!

Grow Wild's terms and conditions apply.
