Forget Me Not Appeal begins at Attingham

Attractions | Published: | Last Updated:

It's a sea of flowers with a message installed into the grounds of a stately home.

Attingham Park's walled garden has been transformed with these special edition copper and brass forget me nots.

Created by Severn Hospice, the display is to advertise their Forget Me Not Appeal 2017.

The display will be open to the public to explore until the flowers are shipped off to their new owners.

The Hospice hopes that the flowers will act as a lasting tribute to the special people who are no longer with us.

Coated with a lacquer that will slowly break down, the forget me nots will change over time to show a unique weathered look.

A spokesman for Severn Hospice said: "Our Forget Me Not Appeal is all about remembering those special people who are no longer with us.

"You don’t have to have experienced the loving care of our hospice to get involved, everyone is welcome to purchase a forget me not as a lasting tribute for a loved one.

"Following the success of our Forget Me Not Appeal last year we are delighted to unveil our new, limited edition forget me nots.


"Each striking flower has been coated with a lacquer that will slowly break down over time gradually exposing the copper to the elements, creating a beautiful weathered look.

"The beautiful hand-crafted flowers, made from copper and brass, have once again been produced by the talented team at the British Ironwork Centre."

The flowers, priced at £25 each, are available to buy online or from any Severn Hospice shop.

Each flower measures 43cm in length and 17cm in diameter. There are a limited number of the brass and copper forget me nots.
