Prize-winning dahlia grower, Ken Stock decided to help us beat blood cancers by selling his dahlias!

People were invited to help Ken choose a name for a new seedling. Anyone could submit a name for someone they would like to remember by making a donation.

People could  donate whatever they wanted and every two pounds gave them a chance to have their chosen name picked at the end of the season. The winning name for the Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research Dahlia was 'Susie' and it was officially registered at the RHS Gardens at Wisley. See the leukaemia and Lymphoma Research dahlia on Ken's website.
