Amateur Gardening - - This Week In Gardening -

SALES of Mr Fothergill’s ‘Victoria Cross’ poppy seeds have so far raised £73,000 for the Royal Chelsea Hospi­tal. They are avail­able from gar­den cen­tres and on­line.

Mr Fothergill’s com­mer­cial di­rec­tor Tim Jef­fries said: “We are proud to be sup­port­ing the Royal Hospi­tal Chelsea and pleased to see so many gar­den­ers join­ing with us to do that.

“Our close links with the RHC will see us sup­port­ing their im­por­tant work for many years to come.”

The Royal Chelsea Hospi­tal, which is home to the red-coated ‘Chelsea Pen­sioner’ war vet­er­ans, was es­tab­lished in 1682 by Charles II for former sol­diers ‘bro­ken by age or war’.
