    Fields of wildflowers were common until 40 years ago and due to their fantastic impact and ease of growth, they are making a welcome return. In this collection, the scarlet waves of poppies mingle with the pinks of corncockle and the blue cornflower. The butterflies love these plants so will flock to your garden creating a wildlife haven. These plants are annuals so will only last one year, but if you dont remove the flowers after they have faded they will usually scatter their seeds for further crops in subsequent years. Each packet will cover around 5sqm.
