Get ready for War Graves Week with our Flower Growing contest
In the build up to War Graves Week, we want you to remember those who died in the world wars by creating your own wildflower memorial.
We will send you free packets of wildflower seeds that you can plant in your own garden or in plant pots. If you plant them when they arrive, you’ll have your own patch of wildflowers which will grow from May to October. Share a photo of your bloom on Twitter and Instagram to enter our contest and win a prize.
You can apply for these seeds at no cost, but we’d love for you to donate to the work of the Commonwealth War Graves Foundation. Your donation will help us to engage and educate people about our work.
Owing to overwhelming interest, we have stopped taking orders for our War Graves Week wildflower seeds.
Show us your progress and win a prize
If you have green fingers, you're in with a chance to win £200 in garden centre vouchers.
To enter our competition, share a picture of your wildflowers with us on Twitter or Instagram using #WarGravesWeek. Our horticultural experts will then choose the best in bloom.
When your flowers bloom be sure to visit our website to share your progress and check out the competition.
This project is also supported by Hayter, who are stocking our seed packets at stores nationwide.
If you choose to donate, the Commonwealth War Graves Foundation (Registered in England, Charity Registration number 1171947) will receive 95% of text donations. If you would prefer to donate on our webpage 1.4% of your donation plus a fixed fee of 0.20p will be deducted by our administration partners.
