            Pet Perennials Garden Craft Kit Seed Wafers Pet Memorial Garden Sympathy Gift


Losing a beloved pet is an incredibly difficult experience, and many pet owners seek ways to honor their memory in meaningful ways. One beautiful way to remember a cherished pet is by creating a pet memorial garden. At Pet Perennials, we understand the importance of honoring the bond between pets and their owners, which is why we offer a range of products specifically designed to help create these living memorials. In this blog post, we'll guide you through the process of creating a stunning pet memorial garden using our products, including garden signs, garden flags, Pet Perennials kits, and Butterfly Seed Bombs.

Choosing the Perfect Location:

The first step in creating a pet memorial garden is choosing the perfect location. Look for a spot in your yard that holds special meaning or significance. It could be near a favorite lounging spot of your pet or a place where you shared many happy memories together. Ensure the location receives adequate sunlight for the plants to thrive and is easily accessible for regular maintenance.

Personalizing the Area with Garden Signs or Garden Flags:

Once you've selected the location, add a personal touch to your pet memorial garden with a beautiful garden sign or flag from Pet Perennials. The flag and the sign (dog/cat) have a heartfelt message and come with a packet of wildflower seeds. Not only do they add a beautiful accent to the garden, but they also serve as a touching tribute to your beloved companion.

Planting with Pet Perennials Kits:

Next, it's time to start planting with our Pet Perennials kits. These kits contain everything required to create seed wafers in the shape of hearts and paws, making the wafers and resulting blooms the perfect addition to any pet memorial garden. Simply sow the seed wafers in the desired area following the instructions provided. As the wildflowers bloom year after year, they'll serve as a living tribute to your pet's memory.

Attracting Butterflies with Seed Bombs:

To enhance the beauty of your pet memorial garden and create a welcoming habitat for butterflies, consider adding our Butterfly Garden Seed Bombs. These colorful seed bombs contain a mix of wildflower seeds specifically chosen to attract butterflies. Simply scatter them throughout the garden and watch as it comes to life with fluttering wings and vibrant blooms.

Maintaining Your Pet Memorial Garden:

Once your garden is planted, be sure to provide proper care and maintenance to ensure its longevity. Water the plants regularly, remove any weeds that may appear, and trim back overgrowth as needed. With a little love and attention, your pet memorial garden will continue to flourish for years to come. Don’t forget that perennial flowers often need to “winter” before fully blossoming into an array of color. So, be careful when weeding the garden to not disturb the wildflowers as they take seed.


Creating a pet memorial garden is a beautiful way to honor the memory of a beloved pet. With the distinctive gift selection from Pet Perennials, you can personalize your garden with memorable signs and/or flags, plant vibrant wildflowers with our Pet Perennials kits, and attract butterflies with our seed bombs.
