Our Giant Flower Press in action with Heart of Blooms

The lovely Andrea Lind from @heartofblooms_ on instagram has been documenting her Flower Pressing journey using our Giant Flower Press.

We can hardly believe how beautiful these photos are, or how she achieved such fantastic colour retention in her pressed flowers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I think these are just perfect, and really appreciate Andrea sharing her journey with us.

Andrea and I were messaging each other after she posted these, and we discussed the lines which have come up on some of the blooms. This certainly does happen with delicate petals but if you’d like to avoid them, be sure to use some paper between the sheets of cardboard, and try not to tighten the press too much – a firm hold does the trick, with a check and possibly a little more after a week or so 💗🙏

Wildflower Children

Create memories and instill a joy of gardening with our new vintage inspired ‘Secret Garden’ and ‘Wildflowers’ Gifts of Seeds.

A greeting card containing a mix of three easy to grow seeds, Secret Garden contains Marigold, Sunflower & Zinnia while Wildflowers contains Californian Poppy, Cosmos & Alyssum.

Designed to promote a connection with nature and enjoy simple pleasures, these Gifts of Seeds are plastic free, Australian made and feature original, nostalgic illustrations by Melbourne artist Daniella Germain.

Giant Flower Presses

Introducing the newest edition to the Flower Press family!

At 30cm tall and 20cm wide, this Giant Australian made Flower Press is TWICE the size of our standard large Flower Press and three times bigger than our mini Flower Press.

This is the perfect press for serious crafters and ecologists or for preserving special floral memories.

The engraving is an illustration by Daniella Germain of a wildflower bouquet ready for pressing.

These beauties are available to order now and make the most special gift for Christmas this year.

New Collaboration with Emilio Frank Design

We are so thrilled to have our Pop Up Pots back in stock, but even more excited to present our latest designs!

We teamed up with Shana Danon from Emilio Frank Design to create this vibrant, colourful artwork especially for our pots.

Shana’s artworks are known for their bold emotive colour and vibrant modernist style, inspired by a passion for Mid Century modernism.

Celebrating form, function and whimsy, they are intended to create happy, positive spaces and evoke joyful memories.

Pop Up Pots can be inserted into an C5 envelope and posted anywhere in the world for the cost of a letter. They can also be planted DIRECTLY into!

Water will drain through the base allowing plants to flourish.

Available to order now, and heading out to gift stores, florists and eco retailers Australia wide.

Sunflower Design Refresh

 

A long time favourite Gift of Seeds for being bright and cheerful, we decided it was time for Sunflower to get a design refresh!

We are also excited to add Sunflower and Trio of Herbs to our plastic free range.

These varieties no longer include a plastic plant label. The plant labels are now incorporated into the recycled kraft packaging meaning they’re also biodegradable,

The varieties which are now Plastic Free now include:

-Sunflower
-Trio of Herbs
-Poppy
-Sweet Pea
-Kangaroo Paw
-Billy Buttons

With all varieties to follow as stocks run out. For more about our move to Plastic Free, read the blog post below

All seeds are packaged in Australian made recycled envelopes meaning no more plastic zip lock bags (this has been the case for some time now).

Our products are also 100% produced and designed in Australia.

New Poppy & Sweet Pea, Plastic Free!

Introducing our newly refreshed designs for Poppy & Sweet Pea! It was time for a makeover of these varieties which had been in circulation since 2012. Daniella Germain who created the original illustrations with us back in my spare bedroom in Melbourne has added a few beautiful new elements and colours to these popular varieties.

Our Sweet Pea pack no longer says ‘Happy Birthday’ which opens this variety up for any occasion or event.

Poppy & Sweet Pea as well as Kangaroo Paw and Billy Button no longer include a plastic plant label, check out the pics below to see how it all works.

The plant labels are now built into the packaging, with a perforated edge added to the inside, allowing the plant label to be torn away and used in a bio degradable & more sustainable way.

All varieties will move to this plastic free design as our existing stocks run out.

 

We are still Open!

Despite a lot of change in the world at the moment, we are still open, still in stock and still shipping orders as usual from our Maleny studio.

If you’d like to reach out and connect with an old friend, a family member, a colleague or a member of your community then we’d love to help you.

We’ve been writing lots of messages along the lines of ‘hang in there buddy’ which is so nice to see. If you know someone who’s finding isolation quite tough, we can help you send them some cheer and something to do.

Don’t forget that shipping, gift wrapping and personal messages are on us, excluding wholesale orders.

A Gift of Thanks, On Us

In light of the bushfires, we wanted to do something a little different to give back and make a small difference.

Our Gifts of Seeds are the perfect token of appreciation so we decided to use them for exactly that to make a small difference.

Some of the things people are doing are momentous while others may be just a small gesture that made someone’s day. We don’t mind.

Has anyone done something for you or others that you feel deserves a small token of recognition?

Did someone drop a cooked meal on your doorstep when you were struggling to get through the week? Is your friend leading an amazing fundraising effort? Is someone sewing or knitting wildlife pouches in their limited spare time? Or volunteering fearlessly to help in anyway they can? We’d love to send them a Gift of Seeds, on us!

Go to the ‘Gift of Thanks’ page, fill out the details including your message of thanks and we’ll take care of the rest including the postage.

Please spread the word! While we have 200 up for grabs, we want these to go to people who really deserve them and would love your help in finding those people.
