There is no doubt that we have all felt the benefits of gardening and spending time outside in the fresh air as we navigated through a world in lockdown.  Whilst this additional engagement with gardening can only be good for our industry, going forward, this message will help Greenfingers Charity as it faces a challenging road ahead. 


The charity’s work planning and designing gardens for life-limited children and families who spend time in hospices has continued over the last few months. Just as soon as it is safe to do so, the team at Greenfingers is very much looking forward to more gardens in hospices becoming a reality this year.


Please help Greenfingers Charity remain in the hearts and minds of its industry friends and garden lovers by taking part in #FloralFriday.  With your support the charity will be able to continue to make a difference to thousands of life-limited children, their families, and their carers every year.


Taking part in #FloralFriday is so easy to do and doesn’t have to cost you a penny…though every penny, or pound does help!! Here’s what you need to do…

  • Post a floral ‘selfie’ or a photo of your garden or favourite Flower on social media
  • Use the hashtags #FloralFriday #HortIndustry
  • Tag @GreenfingersCharity  
  • If you can, make a donation to support the work of Greenfingers Charity by texting FLORALFRIDAY to 70085 to donate £5 or FLORALFRIDAYTEN to 70085 to donate £10.
  • Nominate a friend(s) to do the same

To find out more about Greenfingers gardens in the planning stages and other ways you can help the charity contact Director of Fundraising and Communications Linda Petrons by emailing or calling 07908 221240.
