Mini Flower Presses by Sow ‘n Sow

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.

We’ll be there! We’re in a different spot this time, stand 1334.

We’ve got 3 new Gifts of Seeds to show everyone plus some exciting new Flower Presses! And a few other new things.

We look forward to seeing our existing stockists and meeting anyone interested in stocking our products.

Introducing the ‘Edibles’ mini collection

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 🙂

Inside A Gift of Seeds

When my green thumbed 87 year old Grandad came to visit the Sow ‘n Sow studio, along with my talented photographer cousin, I knew this was an opportunity for some lovely pics! Luckily cousin Duane was happy to oblige and took lots of beautiful shots. These demonstrate how our packets open and what you get on the inside – a little plant label to mark out where your seeds have been planted. You can see how the sowing instructions are included on the inside of the packaging as well.

Sow ‘n Sow’s new home in Maleny

 

Welcome to our re-vamped website! Now that our blog is displaying properly again it’s time for a few catch up posts.

We are very excited to now be based in Maleny on the Sunshine Coast. Our new studio is a part of a 5 acre property that used to be an avacado farm. We are surrounded by Avacados, lychees, beautiful pecan trees and rolling green hills, perfect for getting the dream garden organised.

The Sow ‘n Sow studio is in a renovated shed at the front of the property. After laying a new slab, replacing the roof, swapping garage doors for large sliding doors and adding a window to the East for light, we now have a beautiful, bright airy studio with room to grow. After moving from Melbourne to Castlemaine to Brisbane before Maleny, it’s great to be all set up in a permanent location which we have full control over.

Feeling blessed & Free Gifts with Orders

I’m feeling quite warm and fuzzy this week. We met a lot of beautiful customers on the weekend at The Big Design Market where lovely things were said about our products. It’s great to be face to face with customers at one of the only opportunities we get each year.

The  organic linen label Oh Mabel are generously gifting their customers a pack of our seeds and flower presses with orders placed in December, and Sarah the clever lady behind Oh Mabel said some very nice things about us on instagram this week.

Oh Mabel

Fetch Lane did a feature on our brand, Gardening Australia featured 2 of our products in their Christmas Gift Guide and we’ve done some awesome custom designs in the last few months including one for Blackmores, one for Stem Organics, one for Open Table and one with Stephanie Alexander’s face on the packet, more on this one to be revealed :).

I also feel very lucky to have a great team working behind the scenes here at Sow ‘n Sow. Christiana who’s been working 2 or 3 days a week since we moved to Castlemaine, Mia, Rose, Teagan, Yasmin and Anna who’re all amazing and great company to have in the studio. And I’m still loving our new studio space at the Woollen Mill.

So, I’ve decided it’s time to give back. From now until we close for the holidays, we’re including free gifts with every purchase in our webshop. We always include a few free gift tags anyway, but now for orders over $35 we’re throwing in a cute little blue trowel, and for orders over $60, a free Sunprint kit. (While stocks last, we only have 12 trowels so best get in quick!).

Gifts

As always, we have free shipping in our webshop, free gift wrapping and free writing of personal messages.

For delivery in time for Christmas, if outside Victoria best place your order by Wednesday the 16th of December.

If within Victoria then by Friday the 18th. Our last day in the studio is Monday the 21st so last orders will be shipped then and we do have express shipping options which you can utilise for last minute orders too.  We will be closed until Monday the 18th of Jan. Yep, a nice long, much needed break!

Studio update

Welcome to our new website! We decided it was time for a refresh, a modernisation and a technical upgrade of our online presence so we spent a few months tinkering away in the background before launching the new site in late April. I hope you like it!

Other things keeping us busy include Mother’s day with our Chrysanthemum Gift of Seeds making a come back this year and the launch of a new smaller display stand for stockists.

In February we sadly said goodbye to our first staff member, the beautiful, hard working Catalina who was with us for 2 years. Cat has moved back home to Singapore for a year before starting uni next year. We miss you Cat!

To fill her absence my awesome friend Lauren has been helping out in the studio. She is also our studio buddy which is highly convenient! Loz has also just launched an incredible range of Australian made silk scarves under her brand No Home.

Our Flower Press was featured in the Herald Sun Home Magazine on the 18th of April, White Magazine featured our Golden Wattle Gift of Seeds in a recent issue and Country Home Ideas included a lovely write up of our Enchanted Garden and Bug Wonderland Gifts of Seeds in their March issue.

We are quite a bit obsessed with Instagram lately and there’s been so many great shots of our products from stockists and customers that I wanted to share them here so they don’t get lost forever.

Studio update: The BIG Design Market!

xmasx2

It has been a busy few months here in the Sow ‘n Sow studio; Michelle has recently made a huge leap and moved to the countryside (- it’s beautiful, we are all very jealous) and Cat has just finished her exams! We’ve been celebrating the recent launch and success of both the Enchanted Garden and Bug Wonderland Gift of Seeds, and are equally excited about the addition of “It’s Christmas Thyme” to our festive range.

The past few weeks have seen us busily gearing up for our return to The Big Design Market, which is happening on the 5th, 6th and 7th of December. We would love to see you there, come and say hello!

As it was so enjoyable last year, we are coming back bigger and better with a larger stall, all our new Gifts of Seeds, and our gorgeous new Flower Press. FlowerPress_webWe are also very excited to be included in The Big Design Market’s ‘Designer Showbag’, in which you can find 4 of our beautiful Gift Tags, amongst some other super cool things like funky socks.

This week in particular, we have been causing havoc in the studio by painting walls and plotting the wildly wonderful and colourful backdrop for our stall. This year you will be able to find us just inside and to the right of the entrance to the Royal Exhibition Building… or, I could say, that you may find us at the end of the rainbow ;) See you there! August
