Blackmore & Langdon was started by two friends way back in 1901. The company has a reputation for producing the finest varieties of Begonias and Delphiniums anywhere in the world. Its plants can be seen in varied locations, from the Eden Project to Buckingham Palace and from Tasmania to North America. They have exhibited at every Chelsea Flower Show and even before that when the premier RHS event was the Temple Show. Blackmore & Langdon have been awarded more than seventy of the coveted Chelsea Gold Medals and many many thousands of other awards. For the past two years they have featured on the front page of the Daily Telegraph and the tall elegant spires of their Delphiniums get excellent television coverage, as they can always be seen leaving the showground after the final day. It costs far more to put on a display such as this than can be recouped in sales, so the decision was made several years ago to offer companies an opportunity to be linked with their display. (For those who are potential sponsors, and have not yet experienced 'Chelsea', it is a very high profile event - anybody who is anybody will be seen there and obviously the pedigree of your investment matters). The company has calculated that the cost of their display is 75,000. They would of course be delighted to find an organisation willing to undertake the total costs, but appreciate that this is unlikely. However, any financial assistance would be gratefully received and they sure that it would prove a worthwhile investment, whatever the sum. Contact: Simon Langdon.

Ventnor Botanic Garden is a free public open space that is committed to providing a facility for education, plant conservation and recreation. Within 22 acres of coastal garden on the southern side of the Isle of Wight, an extensive collection of more than 10,000 different species of plant, both native and exotic, represents a rich and genetically diverse display of considerable scientific interest. Much work is still to be done and the Friends of Ventnor Botanic Garden (registered charity no. 1080835) are looking to set up training programmes to encourage people into horticulture as a first career, or for those people who are changing career. The Friends have a policy of social inclusion and encourage people from all walks of life to participate in the development of the Garden. To realise many of their goals - notably to promote and encourage the use, enjoyment and development of the garden as well as assisting in the dissemination of knowledge of the plant kingdom - considerable sponsorship is required. Potential for partnerships is a major opportunity. Contact name: Simon Goodenough, Curator. Address: Ventnor Botanic Garden, Undercliff Drive, Ventnor, Isle of Wight PO38 1UL. Tel.: 01983 855397.
