Floral Guernsey’s anniversary celebrations
A set of postal stamps have been created to mark the 20th anniversary of Floral Guernsey. Each stamp with feature a specially bred daffodil flower. Horticulturist Rae Beckwith, who was born in Guernsey, created the special flower as part of the momentous occasions.

Six stamps have been produced in the first issue to mark the celebrations and the photos on the stamps were taken in the Bailiwick of Guernsey. They aim to reflect the rich variety of flora available in the islands. The stamps have pictures of La Seigneurie in Sark, Guernsey’s south coast and Candie Gardens.

Bridget Yabsley, who works at the Guernsey Post, mentioned that everyone on the island of Guernsey is delighted with the stamps produced by Floral Guernsey and how they capture the glorious landscape of Guernsey.
