Kerikeri Mission Station Seeds
Harvested from the Kerikeri Mission Station gardens, these heritage seeds will bring a touch of colour to your life.
English-style gardens have been tended at Kerikeri since the missionaries arrived in 1819, and we continue that tradition with these old-fashioned flower varieties.
Seeds available now:
- Striped Marigold - Tagetes patula - Every flower is different! In shades of red and orange, this hardy annual flower is always fun to have around.
- Nigella (Love-in-a-mist) - The blue flowers and ferny foliage make this delicate-looking plant a real charmer in the cottage garden.
- Aquilegia (Granny's bonnet) - A traditional flower in English-style country gardens all over the world, the pretty blue Granny's bonnet is a favourite in the Kerikeri Mission Station gardens. It seems to have a mind of its own and pops up in nooks and crannies all over the place!
- Giant forget-me-not (also called Chinese forget-me-not) - Cynoglossum amabile - A hardy annual closely related to the common forget-me-not with hairy leaves and pretty little blue flowers.
