10-year-old Tallulah Lewis-Schulz planted one of the last few flowers. She raised 10 thousand pounds shaving her head in memory of her Dad, Andreas, who died at the hospice last May.

Lucy Ruff from the hospice explained why forget me nots were chosen.

Each of the flowers has been individually handcrafted locally at the British Ironworks Centre in Oswestry.

A total of 1000 Forget Me Nots are for sale at £25 each, for those who wish to buy one in memory of a loved one via the Severn Hospice website, with people able to collect their flower, or have them posted to them in May, once the public display is removed.
