Poppy Victoria Cross seeds were Mr Fothergill’s biggest seller this year, with spring sales generating thousands of pounds for charity.

For every packet sold, the Kentford-based seed company donated 25p to the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

On Wednesday, during an event at Mr Fothergill’s trial ground, a cheque for £24,000 was presented to the RCH.

The seedsman also announced its continued support of the organisation for at least another four years – until the centenary of the end of the First World War.
