New Flanders Poppy seed!

MayFord Seed has recently launched Flanders Poppy Seed, the flower that symbolises lives lost in conflict, and used to remember and celebrate them annually on Remembrance Day, 11 November. It has also come to symbolise lives lost globally, not only to conflict in Europe and elsewhere, but also to the debilitating pandemic that might well be described as a true conflict. Look out for the new seed packets in your local stores.
