We have wanted to share these beautiful handmade seed cards with you for some time now, but every time we take them to the Farmer’s Market or a show, we sell out! We have reserved this new batch for you.
These cards are made in the USA by hand in a family owned and run business that inserts the wildflower seeds into the paper as it is being made. They have commissioned independent artists for the exquisite artwork, and the result is gorgeous.
These cards can be planted, but everyone who picks them up says they are simply too beautiful. See for yourself!
Congratulations to Brenda W. of Montana! She is our first $25.00 gift certificate winner in our November customer review contest. Remember we will be drawing another $25.00 gift certificate at the end of November, so please send us your reviews!
What did Brenda review? The wonderful flower Calendula officinalis, otherwise known as Pot Marigold. This mighty flower is also a great herb.
“The Common Marigold is familiar to everyone, with its pale-green leaves and golden orange flowers. It is said to be in bloom on the calends of every month (the first day of each month on the Roman calendar), hence its Latin name, and one of the names by which it is known in Italy – fiore d’ognimese – countenances this derivation. It was not named after the Virgin, its name being a corruption of the Anglo-Saxan merso-meargealla, the Marsh Marigold. Old English authors called it Golds or Ruddes. It was however, later associated with the Virgin Mary, and in the seventeenth century with Queen Mary.” From A Modern Herbal (1931).
A perfect flower to plant in the spring. Add it to your wishlist today!
