Supporting Marie Curie by Growing Daffodils

Supporting Marie Curie

Suttons supporting Marie Curie

For the past few years we have been very proud to be support Marie Curie. 10% of all our daffodil bulb sales go to the charity and with your help we were last year able to raise an amazing £10,000! The money raised will go towards helping people living with a terminal illness and their families. We would like to give a very big thank you to everyone who bought our daffodil bulbs and supported us.

This year we are very pleased to be working with Marie Curie once again, giving 10% of all daffodil bulb sales. Having raised £10,000 last year, with your support, we hope to raise that much again this year.

Marie Curie provides care and support for people living with any terminal illness, and their families and have been carrying out this vital work for over 65 years. Last year alone they cared for over 40,000 people across the UK.

By buying daffodils from Suttons, you’ll also be supporting a great cause. Marie Curie is here for people living with a terminal illness and their families. Marie Curie offers expert care, guidance and support to help people get the most from the time they have left. The charity has nine Marie Curie hospices across the UK, offering specialist round the clock care, and over 2,000 Marie Curie Nurses who work day and night in people’s homes, providing hands on care and vital emotional support.

Growing daffodils

With variations in size, form and colour available, there are daffodil bulb types for everywhere in your garden – including beds, borders, containers, rockeries and in grass. They also make a great bouquet for any room in your house. Autumn is the best time to plant daffodil bulbs as it gives them time to produce new roots before winter strikes and we have a large selection that are suitable for any size space.

Below are a few of  our favourites or you can find the full range here. So why not grab yourself a pack of daffodil bulbs and help us reach our £10,000 target.

 

Veneto – New and exclusive to Suttons, Veneto has been chosen by Marie Curie. With a long flowering period and exquisitely shaped blooms, this variety is ideal for pots and containers.

Buy a pack of 45 bulbs of Daffodil Veneto and we will donate £5 to Marie Curie.

Miniature Daffodil Patio Mix – A real customer favourite. This great value mix of dwarf daffodil bulbs  provides masses of spring colour in beds, borders, patio containers or naturalised in lawns … the choice is yours!

Split Corolla Lemon Beauty – For something a little different, this unusual star-shaped variety will certainly turn heads. the lemon-yellow centres are surrounded by snow white outer petals.

Tete-a-tete – The all-time best-selling miniature daffodil bulb. Producing pretty clusters of golden-yellow, trumpet-shaped flowers perched on firm stems. Ideal for patio containers.

Treglisson – The earliest flowering daffodil. This Cornish variety blooms from January and is probably the best, most robust, golden trumpet variety of all

Cheerfulness – This strongly scented white daffodil is one of the very few really sweetly scented varieties you can buy, with lovely creamy double flowers, too.
