Ball Colegrave - What's Growing On

Bold 'eyes' are looking On-Trend for 2019

Top Plant: Geranium Sunrise Smokey Eye White

2nd Favourite: Verbena Showboat Mango Orange

3rd Favourite: Begonia Shooting Star


Bedding and Patio plants with bold, distinctive flower colours and patterns are looking to be the underlying trend for Summer 2019, judging by the response of visitors to this years Summer Showcase at the Ball Colegrave Trial Grounds.

Over 3,500 Growers, Independent and Multiple Retailers, Parks and Landscapers, Garden Writers, Plant Breeders, Trades Associations, Students and Home Gardeners attended the 3 week long event. All had the opportunity to vote for their particular favourite variety by marking it with a Blue Flag. With over 1300 catalogue varieties, 200 new varieties and 700 experimental products on display, there was plenty to choose from. 

Each day the flags were counted and 2,342 flags later, we had a result!

We are delighted to announce the winners of this years Summer Showcase 'Blue Flag Favourite Varieties are: 


1st  NEW Geranium Sunrise® Smokey Eye™ White (P)

2nd NEW Verbena Showboat Mango Orange (P)
