Potter’s Herbals has taken some creative steps to educate about the beauty of medicinal plants.
The herbal experts teamed up with award-winning British gardener, Chris Beardshaw, and actress and model Gemma Merna, during the recent Chelsea Flower Show as the pair wore specially designed hats created out of Potter’s Herbals plants and herbs.
Chris, a member of the Henry Potter Advisory Committee, and Gemma are champions of plant-based herbal remedies, and the hats were created by the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies.
Their appearance at Chelsea Flower Show comes amid new research from Potter’s Herbals, which shows nine out of ten people (87 per cent) believe we are a nation of gardeners, yet only one in six (17 per cent) of Brits could recognise echinacea – also known as coneflower. Furthermore, only 13 per cent of consumers can recognise the Traditional Herbal Registration (THR) logo.
Beardshaw commented: “Plants provided our very first medicines and they still have a lot to offer. Getting the perfect combination of colour and form is the key to an award-winning garden at Chelsea, so it makes sense that a herbal product made from the right combination of plants, and the right combination of tradition and technology, will provide the perfect natural remedy.”
