POPPY SEEDS IN AID OF THE RHC

Having raised £63,000 from the sale of poppy ‘Victoria Cross’ and sweet pea ‘Scarlet Tunic’ since 2014, Suffolk seed specialist, Mr Fothergill’s, hopes gardeners will continue to support the work of the Royal Hospital Chelsea (RHC) by growing the poppy again in 2018.

Mr Fothergill’s joint managing director, David Carey, said: “We are proud to be supporting the Royal Hospital Chelsea and pleased to see so many gardeners joining with us to do that. While the centenary draws to a close in 2018, our close links with the RHC will see us supporting their important work for many years to come.”

Poppy ‘Victoria Cross’ makes a fitting remembrance symbol with its bold white ‘crosses’ across single red flowers. Easy to grow and quick to flower from a spring sowing, this form of Papaver somniferum is ideal for informal borders and cottage garden settings. Its distinctive ‘pepperpot’ seedheads are also useful in dried arrangements when flowering ends.
