Description

Have you ever wished you were a flower child? In 2017, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the most iconic Beatles album ever. Yes, we’re talking about Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the album that is still rocking the world half a century after its release! Now, you can add a touch of Sergeant Pepper’s colour to your garden. The famous album cover featured red, white, yellow and blue hyacinths in a vibrant display that matched the bright clothes of the famous musicians. Have you ever wondered if these were just fantasy flowers? They’re not! The incredible hyacinth colours we have brought to this collection are proof of that.

So, turn on your HiFi, pop in your favourite Beatles CDor if you’re lucky enough to have it, the original, vinyl recordand listen to the songs that inspired a generation while you view your garden exploding in an oh-so-sixties combination of magnificent colour.

Even when you close your eyes to enjoy a song even more, the atmosphere of the era will be with you. The scent of hyacinths will make you feel like a flower child, and you might just start singing along to classic songs like “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” and “With a Little Help From my Friends. Open your eyes, and you’re in Beatles-land, surrounded by the flowers they chose for the greatest album they ever made!
