The number of seeds varies from pack to pack, depending on the size of the seed, the type of plant and its rarity.
Roman Chamomile: A perennial, small and creeping plant with daisy-like flowers. The plant has a wonderful, sweet, fruity scent and is commonly used to make herbal infusions for medicinal uses. While it is probably the most popular and well-known therapeutic plant, chamomile is also a popular ingredient in a number of magical rituals.
Blue Munstead Lavender: A perennial flowering plant native to the Mediterranean. Munstead Blue, in particular, is its compact, early blooming, English variety, with bluish-purple flowers above slender, aromatic, grey-green leaves. First introduced in 1916 by the garden designer Gertrude Jekyll, and named after her house Munstead Wood in Surrey, England, this variety is a great choice for containers and is widely used in cooking as a condiment for salads, soups, stews.
Blue Pepe Nasturtium: A unique European variety bred specifically for culinary use. The name is derived from its wonderful steel-blue leaves with purplish undersides. The flowers themselves are also edible and their bright-red hue makes an attractive addition to salads, as well as being perfect for garnishing stir fries. The leaves have a slightly peppery taste, reminiscent of watercress.
Starfire Mix Marigold: Starfire Mix marigolds, along with their relatives of the Tagetes genus, are annual plants native to Mexico and Central America, popular for their delicate, tiny, single, golden-to-orange flowers, lacy foliage and dwarf habit. There are many reasons why marigolds are used widely as an old-fashioned bedding plant: They are hardy and easy to grow – a leading companion plant that repels pests, and their flowers and leaves have a superb citrusy flavour.
Snapdragon Brighton Rock: An heirloom variety that comes with a lovely blend of pastel bi-coloured blooms. The common name snapdragon originates from the fact that the flower looks like a dragon's mouth having its throat squeezed. If that’s not bizarre enough, the flower seed pods turn into creepy skulls when they die.
