Since the beginning of the current Covid-19 crisis, individuals have been turning to nature to seek comfort, to feel the soil on their hands, finding ways to keep grounded while we wait for this moment to pass.
Having been asked several times, why she launched a wildflower seeds business in the middle of a global pandemic, Julie Power responds that it is about the hope and joy they bring.
Wildflowers Seeds have been at the heart of the Power family history since 1859, when her great great great grandfather, William Power, opened his first nursery, florist, and seed merchant’s business in Waterford.
Since then, the Power family business has been centred on quality seed production and continues to operate a successful agricultural seed business. With a passion for the environment, Power wants to share how wildflower seeds can play their part in biodiversity and reveal the joy of native wildflowers in our ecosystem.
“I am grateful to be able to harness my family expertise in seed and continue this tradition as the sixth generation of the Power family. Sowing wildflower seeds will provide a habitat for pollinators, seeds for wild birds, support biodiversity, promote our wellbeing and bring us joy.
“Blooming Native wildflower mixes can be used anywhere, and the Butterfly and Bee mixture is proving popular with gardeners whether for a patio pot or wildflower border.
“We are also seeing a trend towards creating meadow lawns and #Raising the Blade, which means less mowing and more time to enjoy the new life these seeds will bring, a beautiful bloom, butterflies, and bee.
“Our wildflower seed gift pockets have proven very popular. They are a lovely way to connect with family and friends. The wildflower seeds gift cards have space for a message inside and use sustainable packaging.
Wildflower seeds will reward in so many ways. May the summer come soon,” Julia Power stated.
