Each household in Malta and Gozo is set to receive a mix of wildflower seeds as of this week, Environment Minister Aaron Farrugia has revealed today.

“We’ve worked these past months so that every household on th island can receive seeds just in time for spring. Each pack will also include instructions on how to plant them and take care of the flowers,” Farrugia said.

Citizens will receive seeds of indigenous flowers like sweet alyssum, common borage, camomile and poppies.

“Through this initiative, we’re teaching people about the role wildflowers play in providing food and well as the challenges faced by pollinators.”

This comes after a similar project was launched by EU expert Peter Agius two days ago.

Agius is sending interested citizens a pack of 11 different kinds of seeds to “enjoy some Spring colour during the pandemic.”
