One of our biggest projects in 2018 was producing a whopping number of these seed packets for the Queensland Government’s Healthier Happier campaign.
The weather is heating up, the Christmas parties have started and the last minute mad rush of gift purchasing has begun!
We have received our last delivery of Flower Presses for the year and there is still stock available but it won’t last long so be quick if you would like to secure some.
For delivery in time for Christmas, for Australian metro areas with regular shipping, please order by Monday the 17th of December.
Express post is available right up until Thursday the 20th of December.
We are taking a break and will be closed from Friday Dec 21 until Monday January 14.
Sending massive thanks to all of our wonderful customers & stockists for a fantastic & very busy year. We hope everyone has a safe and fun filled Christmas & New Year.

New for Christmas is our Australian summer inspired Gift of Seeds
for wishing with a little Aussie humour, ‘Seeds ‘n Greetings’!
Containing a mix of seeds to create stunning summer bouquets,
with easy to grow white Cosmos, red Zinnia and
fragrant Dill as a useful and beautiful filler.
Australian made and designed, printed on 100% post consumer waste
recycled card and hand packed in our Sunshine Coast studio.
Sow ‘n Sow are thrilled to introduce our new Mini Flower Presses. Although we have had these for a while now, we have been unable to promote the product due to high demand and not enough stock!
These beautiful presses are available in two designs, Golden Wattle or Posy. Beautifully illustrated, each press is hand crafted in Melbourne out of hard-wearing materials to ensure stable pressure & long-lasting use. Flower Presses are used to eternalise the beauty of flowers and foliage and are sure to inspire creativity.
We are proud to provide long lasting, eco-friendly products that are made in Australia.
Just a quick note to put light onto the incredible charity Precious Wings. Sow ‘n Sow has proudly provided our Everlasting Daisy and Forget Me Not Gift of Seeds in support of the charity since 2013, when Kerry first contacted Michelle.
Precious Wings is a not-for-profit organisation who’s generosity and compassion is touching the lives of people who have experienced tragedy. Kerry and Kirsty began Precious Wings (formerly Project Butterfly) in memory of their two beautiful sons, Lachlan and Toby, after experiencing still births. They have since been driven to reach out to families who are experiencing the devastating loss of a loved one. They are able to provide comfort and support through giving families a beautiful and memorable gift as they leave the hospital.
They supply Memory boxes to families who lose a baby, who lose a child of up to 16 years, as well as for some adults. Miscarriage memory bags are supplied to early pregnancy units and emergency departments. They also provide hospital staff and families with support and advice in empowering families during the healing process. Precious Wings currently provide for 24 hospitals and funeral homes over Queensland.
We recently had a local photographer Elliot Swanson from Ground to Kitchen come by the studio to take some snaps for us. Here are a few of my favourites including some lovely snaps in our studio garden.
It’s always lovely to collaborate with local people and we look forward to shooting more with Elliot in the coming months.
We’re busy preparing for the Gift and Homewares trade show Life Instyle which we’ll be exhibiting at in early August. I can’t wait to share the new products we’ve been working on!
A classic cottage garden annual with bright colourful blooms which are great as a cut flower. We picked snapdragons because they’re easy to grow and are exactly the kind of flower we would like to give to our Mothers on Mother’s Day.
Usually our packets have a brightly coloured top band with a colourful illustration on the kraft background. We decided to switch things around for this design, instead having a plain kraft top band and the illustration sitting on colour below. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out, all thanks to Daniella Germain our amazing illustrator & designer as usual.
A gorgeous, eco-friendly gift that grows featuring stunning illustrative artwork that mums of all ages will love.
The year is drawing to a close and we are counting down for more than one reason this year as Michelle is expecting a new baby around Christmas!

We are very excited to announce that our gorgeous new ‘Edibles’ mini collection is now available for purchase!
It was certainly time for us, 7 years in, to add some more edibles to our collection. And after realising recently that one of our best sellers is our ‘Trio of Herbs’ Gift of Seeds I feel more confident that people are keen to gift seed that is useful and delicious!
Leafy Greens contains a mix of Lettuce, Rocket and Spinach seeds. A very easy to grow mix that if picked regularly just continues to give. We’ve had a patch of these growing for months on end at my place, supplying a constant supply of fresh & crispy greens for our meals, which looks lush in the garden too. (those greens in the pics below came from my garden!)
I chose watermelon as the other variety to kick off the edibles range as it is just such a darn cute fruit, is sweet and juicy, easily grown from seed and who doesn’t love watermelon! Great for kids or anyone who loves to grow & harvest their own produce.
I hope you like them, and can’t wait to show our stockists these gorgeous new designs at Life Instyle in Melbourne next week.
We are at stand 1458 and looking forward to it! And thanks to Rikki Lancaster for the gorgeous pics 🙂
