Registration for wildflower seed kits is now open.

The John Muir Trust has teamed up with Grow Wild to share thousands of free seed kits so John Muir Award groups can transform their local spaces into inspiring and colourful wild flower havens.

The Trust is now part of one of the UK’s biggest-ever seed sowing campaigns to help create over one million square metres of wild flowers in spring 2015.

Register today to receive wild flower seeds native to your country for you to sow as part of your John Muir Award activity.

There are 120,000 free kits up for grabs and all you need to do to register is fill in Grow Wild’s simple two-minute form at www.growwilduk.com/register-seed-kit

Registration closes at midnight on 14 February 2015 and the kits will be sent out in late March, just in time for spring sowing.

Click and pass on this registration web link to other groups you know that might also like to join. If you have already received seed kits in 2014, don't worry - you can register again for spring 2015 kits.

"We are delighted to team up with the John Muir Trust. We are big fans of the Trust's nature engagement initiative the John Muir Award. There is a great fit between sowing UK native wild flowers to benefit people, places and nature, and Muir's message of experiencing, enjoying and caring for wild places."
Philip Turvil, Grow Wild Lead Partnership Manager

1. The exclusive seed kits are designed to help your group/s grow beautiful, colourful wild flowers, which will be a haven for bees, birds and butterflies. As well as the fun of sowing the seeds, there’s the huge intrigue of seeing plants grow and flower through summer.

2. Your group/s will benefit from getting outside to enjoy some healthy outdoor activity, learning new skills and showing how it's possible to make a real difference to where you live. It’s a great way of bringing a bit more wildness into our lives.

3. There’s a guide to help you and your group get started on your Grow Wild adventure and lots of useful tips and hints on the website. It’s a great chance for your group to try something new in 2015.
