Rigby Taylor helps commemorate World War I

07 June 2018

To commemorate the centenary of the end of World War I, Rigby Taylor has introduced a range of Euroflor Commemorate wildflower mixes, with each of the six new mixes having special meaning:

[] Honour - a combination of red, white and blue flowers; the three colours of the Union Jack symbolising patriotism;

[] Souvenir - 100% Red Poppies - the Poppy in Great Britain, Commonwealth countries and the USA symbolises the blood spilled by the allied forces;

[] Bleuet – predominantly blue but also with white, pink and crimson Cornflowers; Cornflowers originally represented young French soldiers arriving on the battlefield and wearing new, grey/blue uniforms thereafter symbolising those who died for France;

[] Alliance - a mixture of Red Poppies and Cornflowers; the combination mix of the red and blue symbolises the alliance of British and French soldiers;

[] Peace - a white flower mix including Gypsophilia elegans, to symbolise the armistice and ending of hostilities; and

[] Hope – a mix of bright colours, including perennial species for longevity to symbolise hope.

The mixes are available either as a Discovery boxed sets of 10 x 50 gm sachets (any combination) or as individual 1 kg sachets. Each 50 gm sachet will cover 10-15 m2; I kg will cover 150-350 m2.
