Looking Ahead … Exciting New Additions for Autumn 2018


We are delighted to present our 2018 Autumn Portfolio, brings together our highly recommended varieties for Autumn and Spring production, plus stunning New Additions released since you received our 2018 Catalogues.

Highlights include stimulating novelties to excite the retail market such as the fabulous Trailing Pansy Cool Wave™ Strawberry Swirl, the extra-large bloomed novelty Primrose Sweet 16 , the refined extra-large flowered Double Primula Prima Belarina™, plus the rich coloured Polyanthus Stella Scarlet Pimpernel, to name but a few.

Local trialling remains a core activity for us, as we endeavour to innovate and deliver the best genetics to your nursery door. Our onsite trials continue all year round in providing our Product Managers and Plant Breeders the opportunity to develop new varieties and enhance existing lines specifically for the UK market.

Through this trialling process, the new generation breeding of Pansy F1 Matrix™, Viola F1 Sorbet™ XP and more recently introduced Trailing Pansy F1 Cool Wave™ take production and garden performance to a whole new level. These “best in class” series boast unique plant structures, controlled plant habit and stimulating new colours to excite the retail market such as the latest new colour ‘Neptune’ in the Viola Sorbet™ XP series

Our extensive Primrose and Polyanthus range covers everything you might need with outstanding and proven genetics which provide colour from October right through to March. The ranges include straight colours, bicolours, rosebud types, double flowering varieties and eye-catching novelties for premium sales opportunities such as the new Primrose Sweet 16 and the Double Primrose Belarina™ Candy Frost.

In February we held a special event; “Spring Trials & Season Extender Workshop”. This was a great platform for leading plant breeders; PanAmerican & Kieft Seed, Selecta One and Morel Diffusion to discuss with our customers the current and future development of Pansy, Viola, Primrose, Polyanthus, Cyclamen and Dianthus, their cultural requirements and retail opportunities.

The Summer Showcase… you are invited!

We really look forward to seeing you at our 2018 Summer Showcase. There promises to be plenty of new varieties for the 2019 season plus what will be one of the most exciting and innovative Trends Colour and Retail Solutions display we have created yet! Please pencil the date in your diary; 9-27th July 2018, this is an event not to be missed!
