Mr Fothergill’s Seeds has pledged its support for Greenfingers by naming a new sweet after the charity for the 2017 season…
Sweet Pea ‘Greenfingers’ is a traditional grandiflora type with strongly-scented blooms of rich cream with a pale violet picotee.
Mr Fothergill’s joint MD David Carey said 25p from the sale of each £2.45p packet would be donated to Greenfingers. “We hope we can raise the charity’s profile with our customers, Britain’s gardeners and the garden trade,” he said.
The official naming was performed by the charity’s Chariman, John Ashley, at the seedsman’s annual press day last week.
