Flower Seed Ranges
We offer over 350 different flower varieties in our standard flower range, with a number of NEW varieties for the 2021 season including:
Cosmos Double Dutch Rose (RRP of £2.40 for 50 seeds) which has big and blousy, double blooms over attractive, soft foliage. The large plants produce long flowering displays perfect for mixed summer borders.
Dianthus chinensis Chianti (RRP £2.40 for 200 seeds) is free flowering with uniquely coloured, large double blooms. This variety is possibly the most eye-catching of all China Pinks, for beds, borders and containers.
Poppy Amazing Grey (RRP £2.40 for 500 seeds) has dainty blooms in extraordinary shades, with all the nostalgic charm of traditional field poppies and is easy to grow.
Salvia Blue Victoria (RRP £1.90 for 250 seeds) is loved by beneficial insects and has neatly rounded plants with intensely coloured and long-lasting flower spikes. A great choice for striking bedding displays and mixed containers.
Making the most of home-gardeners continued interest in growing wild flowers, Johnsons have increased their own range to now include Corncockle (RRP £1.90 for 100 seeds), Teasel (RRP £2.40 for 150 seeds), Yarrow (RRP £1.90 for 250 seeds) and Yellow Rattle (RRP £2.85 for 150 seeds).
All are native British varieties (now highlighted on pack) and help attract beneficial insects such as bees and butterflies.
As more gardeners want to add a modern, designed look to garden displays, new perennial grass varieties have also been added to the 2021 collection. These varieties all provide colour and texture as well as being perfect for pots and containers:
Grass Carex comans Bronze (RRP 1.90 for 40 seeds) is a versatile specimen grass, forming dense tussocks of bronze-brown, hair-like leaves.
Grass Festuca glauca (RRP £1.90 for 100 seeds) has fine blue-green leaves topped by upright flowering heads which turn a beautifully contrasting straw-gold as they mature.
Grass Stipa tenuissima (RRP £1.90 for 100 seeds) is one of the most graceful small to medium-sized grasses. Also known as ‘Pony Tails’ for its fine, hair-like appearance.
Organic growing continues to be an ever-popular trend and more recently gardeners have also been looking to grow flowers from organic seed.
In response to this, Johnsons have added 15 new organic flower seeds to the range. Produced without the use of pesticides or other chemicals, these beautiful flowers are a great introduction for gardeners interested in organic home-gardening. Many varieties will also help attract bees and other pollinators to the garden.
Varieties in the new organic flower collection include Calendula Touch of Red, Cleome Pink Spider Flower, Lavatera Pink Mallow and Rudbeckia Chocolate Orange. The range has RRPs from £1.90 to £2.85 and is available as part of the main range or as a compact hot spot stand.
Packets feature icons including the RHS Plants for Pollinators logo and each standard packet has the FREE colour plant label to help identify each plant, which gardeners love, now on the back of the packet.
Johnsons also offers a beautiful flower seed range in collaboration with Sarah Raven, for incremental sales - Sarah Raven's Cut Flowers and Wildlife Attracting collections.
