For such a humble little flower, forget-me-nots have a big place in our hearts and are often used as a symbol of remembrance. The subject of poems and legends, the forget-me-not’s cult status outweighs its diminutive size and simple beauty.
The eternal renewal of nature awakens something special in all of us. We've curated a few of our favourite ways to sow the seeds of remembrance, recovery and renewal, or to find the perfect nature-inspired bereavement gift.
While it may feel painful to remember a loved one following a bereavement, there is also comfort to be found in the endless possibilities of remembering, the places it can take you, the feelings it can evoke, and with always the tantalising possibility that a time long forgotten will resurface like a delicious gift.
In our latest interview we meet Henry Emson, founder of One Life One Tree which enables people to offset an entire lifetime of carbon emissions by planting a Giant Sequoia tree. Recently, the trees have become increasingly popular as memorials, enabling families to create a sustainable tribute to their loved one which can be visited for generations to come.
