Diamond deal for National Trust

The National Trust is collaborating with garden centre group, Blue Diamond on a collection of seeds, bulbs, roses and other plants that are inspired by the gardens it cares for.

The long-term collaboration will also allow members of the public to become custodians of some incredible saplings, including from Sir Isaac Newton’s Apple Tree and the Ankerwyke Yew, which witnessed the signing of the Magna Carta. These will be available by auctions, hosted on the Blue Diamond website.

Through sales generated from the National Trust Collection by Blue Diamond, a minimum of 10% of the retail selling price per product will be given to the National Trust.

Products in the collaboration include six property inspired collections of seeds and a wildflower collection; bespoke herbaceous border collections inspired by four National Trust properties; ready to plan Plant-O-Mat trays; a number of National Trust inspired roses – including Rosa ‘Octavia Hill’, named after one of the founders of the charity; and native trees and shrubs.
