New Products - New Sales Opportunities

We are delighted to present our Spring Additions brochure, packed with over 40 outstanding new varieties released since the launch of our 2018 catalogues, along with additional sales opportunities such as Speedplanter and Jumbo 40 Season Extenders.

Highlights include new novelties to excite the booming patio plant market such as; the striking and early flowering interspecific Sunrise® Smokey Eye™ Geraniums, Nemesia Lilac Queen with its distinctive bicolour blooms in purple and lilac tones, an outstanding new bicolour double Petunia Tumbelina® Bella, and the incredible two-tone seed-raised Verbena Obsession Twister.

Other introductions include additional series we thoroughly trialled this Summer in both pot and garden, such as Argyranthemum LaRita®, Gardenetta Dahlia and Cosmos Apollo.

A number of these new varieties not only gave outstanding performance in our Summer Trials this year, but were also chosen by the 3,500 visiting Growers, Retailers, Parks and Home Gardeners as their Blue Flag favourites.

It’s this commitment and investment in local trialling which remains a core activity for Ball Colegrave, as we endeavour to bring the absolute best genetics to your nursery door. Through this process we test existing and potential new varieties all year round in pots, packs, beds, baskets and patio containers in our West Adderbury testing facility.

Between January and March 2018 our greenhouses are also packed with Spring Plant Trials. So why not book an appointment to come and see what’s ‘cooking in the kitchen’ for the Autumn and Spring season, we would love to see you!

A record 3,000 trade and home gardeners visited this year's Summer Showcase, a key event in the industry calendar for identifying innovative new varieties, plant collections and colour themes as included in this brochure. The 2018 Annual Summer Showcase dates are set; Monday 9th to Friday 27th July. Please save the dates in your diary and join us for a truly inspirational day.
