Number of seeds in a 1 gram Wild flower seed packet

Q: How many seeds can I expect to receive if I order a 1 gram wild flower seed packet?

A: Wildflower seeds come in many different shapes and sizes. Some are particularly large and a 1 gram packet of Yellow Flag iris (Iris pseudacorus) seed will contain approximately 20 seeds. At the other extreme some wild flower seeds are more like dust particles. A 1 gram packet of Common centaury (Centaurium erythraea) for example will contain a staggering total of around 80,000 seeds! Many wildflowers are tricky and often erratic germinators. For this reason we have always preferred to sell seed by weight thus ensuring that every Wild flower seed packet will contain a sufficient number of seeds to produce a good number of seedling.
