Hillier showing support for The Silver Line

Hillier

Hillier is once again joining forces with The Silver Line charity, raising funds through the sale of two striking Lavender varieties. Lavandula angustifolia ‘Silver Line’, a popular line introduced at Chelsea Flower Show 2016, is once again available along with a delightful new variety, Lavandula angustifolia ‘Silver Line Blue’. For every plant sold, Hillier will donate £1 to the charity.

The Silver Line charity, set up by Dame Esther Rantzen, operates the only national, free confidential helpline for lonely isolated older people that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Last year, the charity passed its one millionth caller – a figure that, sadly, shows the incredible need for this service.

Lavandula ‘Silver Line’ is a wonderful variety of English Lavender that produces masses of pure white, fragrant, flowers throughout the summer and into autumn. It has soft, grey-green leaves, making it a perfect foil to other shrubs and perennials in a mixed border or patio pot.

Lavandula ‘Silver Line Blue’, new to Hillier in 2017, is a similarly fragrant variety of English lavender to L. ‘Silver Line’, but with striking soft-blue flowers. Both varieties are well loved by bees and butterflies.

“We are delighted to be able to support the work of this very important charity,” comments Hillier chairman, Robert Hillier, OBE VMH. “Lavandula ‘Silver Line’ was well received last year by our customers and we are happy to also be able to offer a beautiful blue variety this year. They are two great plants that support a very worthwhile cause.”

The two lavenders are available to buy now from Hillier Wholesales Nurseries and come in a 2-litre pot size. For enquiries contact the Hillier Nurseries sales team on 01794 368733 or email sales@hillier.co.uk.

The Silver Line number is 0800 4 70 80 90. Someone is available to take calls 24 hours a day, every day of the week.
