  • Unwins Nature's Heaven Easy Wildflowers Shady Mix

Unwins, part of Westland Horticulture, is thrilled to announce its Nature’s Haven Easy Wildflowers Shady Mix was crowned the winner in the Plants, Seeds & Blubs category at this year’s Garden Industry Manufacturer’s Association Awards (GIMA).

The GIMA Awards celebrate product and marketing innovation in the garden industry and the annual ceremony is a highly anticipated networking event. Hosted by Welsh TV and Radio broadcaster, Gethin Jones, at Celtic Manor Resort in South Wales on Thursday 19th October, the judges commented that the Unwins Wildflowers Shady Mix was “an easy way to sow seeds and a good specific mix for shady spots”. The Unwins Gardener’s Seed Box was also a finalist in the same category.

The mix combines flower seeds as well as seed sowing granules handpicked to be perfect for shady areas. The seeds include native British Isles wildflowers for a nectar rich and colourful wildflower garden. Consumers simply scatter the seeds and watch and wait as a they grow into a beautiful display that supports nature, from bees to butterflies, and even a variety of insects.

Creating a colourful display in a shady area can be tricky for even the most experienced gardener, so the Unwins Nature's Haven Shady Wildflowers mix is proud of its specially created mix that grows into a stunning sight that everyone can enjoy, no matter how shady their outdoor space is.
