Ball Colegrave - What's Growing On

Rich colours look set for retail sales in 2018

NEW Petunia 'Ovation Dark Heart'

NEW Celosia 'Dragon's Breath'

NEW Trends Combination 'Neon Lights'


Strong colours certainly look set to be the underlying theme for bedding plant sales in 2018 judging by the response of visitors to this year’s Summer Showcase at our West Adderbury Trial Grounds.

Over 3,500 visitors attended the 3 week long showcase, including Growers, Retailers, Parks, Landscapers, Plant Breeders, Garden Writers, Trade Associations, Students and Home Gardeners.

Most visitors attending took the opportunity to vote for their favourite variety and by marking it with a Blue Flag. With over 1300 catalogue varieties, 200 new varieties, 700 experimental products and 9 'Trends' colour themes on show, there was certainly plenty to choose from.

We are delighted to announce the winners of this year’s Summer Showcase 'Blue Flag Favourite Varieties' which are:

1st NEW Petunia 'Ovation Dark Heart (P)'

2nd NEW Celosia ‘Dragon’s Breath™’

3rd NEW Petunia 'Amore™ Queen of Hearts (P)

Many visitors also chose their favourite colour theme from various Trends retail and flower bed displays. The most poular of these was one of the new combinations; Neon Lights with its bright white, green, yellow and red foliage arrangements.
