If you’re wondering about a unique gift that you can give someone instead of flowers, consider flower seeds. Flower seeds can be a fun replacement to the standard bouquet of roses or other flowers, because they have the potential to be a gift that keeps giving.
Long after cut flowers would have died, flower seeds can provide beauty and fragrance for a room or garden because they turn into a living plant. Giving a gift of flower seeds can show love, friendship, or endearment on a long-term basis by offering the recipient a constant reminder of your thoughts.
The following are some flower seeds you might want to give for occasions like birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, baby births, and graduations:

If you want to give the gift of flower seeds for a special occasion, or to offer sympathy, there are many companies you can turn to online like the few we’ve mentioned.

It’s possible to buy seeds to grow roses, bachelor buttons, sunflowers, zinnias, and many other gorgeous flowers. Consider this special and thoughtful gift the next time flowers seem in order.
