About us

Our History

Wildflowers Seeds have been at the heart of my family history since 1859, when my 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. 

In 2020, at the begining of the Corona Virus pandemic, Julie Power started wildflower seed business Blooming Native Wildflowers, and subsequently launched Connecting to Nature in 2021, continuing the family tradition with her passion for wildflowers and commitment to supporting biodiversity.

During lockdown we became a nation tuned into nature, and as a result, we transformed the space around us to recover and enrich our lives. Since then, we have had a new awareness of the mental health benefits of connecting to nature.

Connecting to Nature was launched with the aim of helping our community enjoy the wellbeing benefits of nature therapy by supporting biodiversity and connecting to the natural world in their everyday environment - at home, at work, in the community.

Our Irish Wildflower Seed Production

At Connecting to Nature, we believe that wildflowers are not only beautiful, but also play a crucial role in supporting our environment and its delicate ecosystems. That's why we are committed to providing products that support biodiversity and encourage sustainable gardening practices.

We produce our Irish native wildflower seeds in Faithlegg Co.Waterford, in conjunction with our sister company Seedtech, and Designed by Nature.
