The Northlew Poppy

Northlew poppy remembrance

“In Flanders fields
the poppies blow
between the crosses,
row on row”

Back in October we posted a blog about the Northlew Poppy initiative. Northlew, a small Dartmoor village, lost proportionally more enlisted men than any other principality in the UK and in remembrance are created a 20 mile poppy avenue, using poppy seeds very willingly donated by Suttons. We have also created a special poppy seed packet, telling the sad story of Northlew and containing 2,800 seeds.

If you want to create a poppy display this summer then now is the time to sow the seeds. A Northlew Poppy Seed packet costs just £1.99 and Suttons will donate £1 for every packet sold to the Northlew Memorial Store fund. Thus helping the community that lost so much.

About Lis

Our Suttons Blog comes from Lis Wallace, Head of Customer Service here at Suttons since 2002. Living on the edge of Dartmoor Lis has a large and “somewhat tricky” garden split across several levels but with the bonus of a stream tumbling through and a large, fertile veg patch. Across the blog Lis will share some of the knowledge she has gained over the years from her father, from working at Suttons and also from her own trial and error. Storm the Jack Russell is bound to chip in now and then. That’s what terriers do!
