Looking Ahead … Exciting New Additions for Autumn 2020


We are delighted to present our 2020 Autumn Portfolio, brings together our highly recommended varieties for Autumn and Spring production, plus stunning New Additions released since you received our 2020 Catalogues.

Highlights include the front cover introducing our new series of Erysimum ‘Summer Breeze’. The 3 distinctive colours in this series provide an abundance of early Spring colour, just as consumers are venturing back to their gardens after the winter. Much earlier to colour up than existing varieties, Summer Breeze will not disappoint!

It’s been great to see such strong Primrose sales this spring. With a comprehensive range of programmable series, we have a variety to meet your varying needs. Whether that be Bonneli for early autumn pack and pot sales, through to Husky for later flowering spring sales or our most popular Alaska series which falls in-between for mid-season promotions. Our range of novelties provide eye-catching, added value opportunities in larger 11 to 13cm pots, including the popular Emotions, a striking mixture of unique flower forms.

Why not try planting 3 Polyanthus plugs of our F1 Stella series or F1 Showstopper series directly into a 2 litre. This has proven a popular and very successful format, providing a fantastic impulse premium product…..good for the grower, great for the retailer and highly rewarding for the consumer.

The Primrose cropping guide on page 43 will help you achieve the right flowering plant for the sales period intended.

Pansy Cool Wave® continues to grow in popularity. Its versatile and vigorous trailing habit, with enough power to get through the cool winter months, is ideally suited for both hanging baskets and larger finished pot sales. We recommend transplanting 3 x Ball 104 plugs directly into a hanging pot or 2lt pot in late summer/ early autumn. These will finish fast for high impact and colourful impulse sales. Look out for the new Raspberry Swirl… it’s a stunner!

The Summer Showcase… you are invited!

We really look forward to seeing you at our 2020 Summer Showcase. There promises to be plenty of new varieties for the 2020 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; 13th July - 31st July 2020, this is an event not to be missed!
