Created specifically for this landmark anniversary, free packs of poppy seeds courtesy of Freeman Brothers Funeral Directors
In 2018 we mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One. In remembrance of those who have served our country during or since, this year Freeman Brothers will be handing out some specially-prepared poppy seeds, for members of the local community to plant and grow. We hope that as many as possible of our poppies are planted to provide a living reminder of those who fought and died for us. Poppy seeds are best planted between May and August in order to flower the following year, and we would be delighted to know how your seeds get on, if you receive some. If you haven’t been able to join us at one of our events this year, please get in touch and let us know that you’d like a pack of these seeds.
The leaflets included with our poppy seeds include the hashtag #FreemanBrothersThankYou, as a way for us to link our posts and enjoy the progress of your flowers. If you would like to share your pictures, please tweet @FBSussex using #FreemanBrothersThankYou or email them to us.
The Freeman Brothers team have been busy planting some poppy seeds at our offices – look out for updates on the blog and via Twitter as we enjoy the flowers blooming at our offices in West Sussex. We look forward to seeing these poppies grow, and are pleased to be able to celebrate this landmark of Remembrance.
