Mixed wildflower seed packs are fab, try getting the native British mixes if you can.

Wildflowers would be great, but if she would rather have hardy annuals that you can sow into the ground there are :- nigella (love in a mist), Limnanthes (poached egg plant), Eschscholyas (Californian poppies), clarkia and cosmos.

Perennials to plant, a selection could be:- Thyme, campanulas, salvia superba, nepeta (catmint), erigeron, perennial geraniums, agastache, verbena bonariensis and stachys.
