Lemon Tree Trust: Standing with Ukraine

Take part in our #SunflowerSolidarity campaign

We stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and with all people who have been forced to flee their homes.⁣ We believe every person has the right to feel safe; to live freely, without the threat of violence or persecution.⁣ We have found that gardens and the act of gardening can help bring us together and share common ground.⁣

The sunflower is the national flower of Ukraine. ⁣⁣Gardener to gardener we invite you to sow a sunflower seed, nurture it and enjoy it. Plant one for yourself, and consider planting one for someone unable to sow the seeds they had so looked forward to nurturing this spring.

If you’re planting with children or want a fun activity to bring the seed sowing to life, you might like our Lenny Lemon ‘sunflower pot people’ activity sheet, created in conjunction with the Royal Horticultural Society. It’s ideal for families and classroom settings and a range of age groups.
