HELPING OUR HEROES….. Chelsea Flower Show.

B&Q and Birmingham City Council are supporting Help the Heroes at Chelsea Flower Show. B&Q are sponsoring the Council in the design and build of a garden help raise funds and awareness for the charity.
The theme of the garden will be the Road to Recovery and will depict our heroes’ journey from helicopter to hospital to home. The key feature of the garden is a spectacular suspended replica Chinook helicopter. As if about to land, with a framework planted in shrubs and suspended 3.75 metres in the air, it will rise above a ‘hospital retreat’ garden and ‘grow your own home’ garden.
The garden also features an exclusive Help for Heroes limited edition petunia mix which will go on sale in all 330 stores the weekend before Chelsea Flower Show, with a donation to the charity for every pack sold so that everyone across the country can support this worthwhile cause. Last year over £55,000 was raised for the charity through the sale of this exclusive Petunia mix.
Steve Guy, Horticulture Category Manager at B&Q says; "The work of Help for Heroes is vital and we’re calling on all RHS Chelsea visitors and B&Q customers to get behind our nation’s heroes by either visiting our Road to Recovery Garden or adding colour to their own gardens whilst raising much needed funds by buying the Petunia Help for Heroes mix."
Road to Recovery is built by Birmingham City Council’s Parks team, who have won gold 18 times over the past two decades at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
