Our stand at the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) National Plant Show, which starts tomorrow (June 21 & 22, 2016), will be all about our new plants this year.
Following the appointment of Ben Gregory as our New Products Development Manager, we have been fully focussed on bringing new and innovative plants to market.
Adam Dunnett, our Sales and Marketing Director, said: “At the National Plant Show in 2015 we walked away with the prestigious Best Stand in Show Award with our inspirational ‘Inside Out’ stand, this year the stand is all about our new plants.
“With 37 new plant promotions and a host of trial plants to launch we have no room on our stand for anything else. There will be a dramatic display of the new introductions to our promotional offering for 2017 and an insight into products in development for 2018.
“Two new plants, which will be at our stand at the show will be Geranium ‘Purple Ghost’ and Antirrhinum ‘Pretty in Pink’. The Geranium is dark purple and has feathery foliage, which provides the perfect foil for the ghostly lilac tinted white flowers. It is a gorgeous little promotional plant worthy of a spot in the border or in a container, where it will flower all summer long.
“The Antirrhinum ‘Pretty in Pink’ is an outstanding new perennial with bright pink tubular flowers. It will flower all summer long until the first frosts. Hardy to -6ºc. Antirrhinum ‘Pretty in Pink’ is attractive to butterflies and bees and was included in Chelsea’s Top 20 Plants of the Year for 2016.”
