Thompson and Morgan donates profits to RHS Harlow Carr

Thompson and Morgan has donated £1,216 to the RHS from the profits of its Candelabra Primula ‘Harlow Carr Hybrids’.

The company will donate £1 from every pack of plants sold for the Streamside Garden at RHS Garden Harlow Carr in North Yorkshire in memory of horticulturalist Geoffrey Smith.

The garden, which was in need of restoration when the RHS took over Harlow Carr in 2001, stays cool and damp in the summer, allowing the cultivation of moisture-loving plant varieties.

Geoffrey Smith, famous for his work on radio and television, was superintendent of Harlow Carr for twenty years from 1954 to 1874 and was responsible for the creation of the Streamside Garden.
