We’re delighted to support HighGround – the charity building lives for ex-military personnel in the outdoors, with this new sweet pea seed blend. Lending a patriotic appeal to any patch, our HighGround Sweet Pea Mix includes an energising selection of red, white and blue scented sweet peas. For every tin sold, £1 goes to the HighGround.
HighGround is a charity started by Anna Baker Cresswell in 2013 to help Service Leavers, Reservists and Veterans to find jobs, careers and vocational opportunities in the land-based sector. They provide advice, support, contacts and introductions for HighGrounders, with Rural Weeks at the core of their service. HighGround is proud to provide the Horticultural Therapy service for injured service personnel at DMRC Stanford Hall.

Capturing the Gardens’ magic in a illustrated seed tin…
Sweet pea seeds grown and harvested with this much care deserve to have a thoughtful container to keep them stable and dry. So we made a fully-recyclable seed tin – decorated with an original Easton Collection design. Created by Ursula Cholmeley and blooming with sweet peas, the design reflects the colours found in the Arts and Crafts motifs of the Edwardian era when sweet peas were as adored at Easton as they are today.
