To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Great War, and in celebration of The Royal Air Force’s 96th birthday we are thrilled to be working alongside The Garden Centre Group to launch their commemorative seeds in the form of red, white and blue themed seed packets.
These seeds include ‘Flying the Flag’ sweet pea and ‘Per Ardua ad Astra’ cornflower packets and are available to purchase at The Garden Centre Group stores. Each packet of seed contains seeds for red, white and blue flowers, allowing all gardeners to create their own commemorative displays by incorporating them into their hanging baskets, borders or beds. The RAF Benevolent Fund is encouraging gardeners to share their images of their RAF-themed flowers; you can do this through social media by using @RAFBF #FlowerPower. We would love to see what our gardeners come up with also via twitter @ThompsonMorgan.
Thompson &Morgan and The Garden Centre Group will be making a donationto the RAF Benevolent Fund for each packet of seed sold. The RAF Benevolent Fund provides financial, practical and emotional support to all members of the RAF family. The donations of each seed packet that you purchase will help the Fund achieve their mission in providing this essential support to improve the wellbeing of the RAF family. If you would like to find out more information please visit www.rafbf.orgTwitter:https://twitter.com/RAFBF
By purchasing a packet of seed not only will you be adding colour and patriotism to your garden, you will be helping the RAF Benevolent Fund help others. Let us see what you can come up with by posting your comments below or via Facebook and Twitter.

Hi Helen, I am sorry to say this has now ended and the seeds are no longer available. However, I have been to the RAF site and found this link which may help you to find the seeds. https://www.rafbf.org/news-and-blogs/garden-centre-group-digs-deep-raf-benevolent-fund
