We’re celebrating today (September 9, 2015) after our new plant Salvia ‘Love and Wishes’ won the Best Plant Introduction – Nursery Stock Award at the Four Oaks Trade Show.
We entered seven new plants for the award and were delighted that Salvia ‘Love & Wishes’ was crowned the winner at the trade show yesterday.
Adam Dunnett, our Sales and Marketing Director, said: “We’re ecstatic that Salvia ‘Love & Wishes’ was named as the winning plant in the Best Plant Introduction – Nursery Stock Award. It is a truly exceptional variety – a tremendous member of the ‘Wish’ Salvia series.
“It has deep purple flowers with deep burgundy calyces, dark green foliage and dark stems, which combine superbly to create a stunning plant. In the garden it has a very long flowering time from June through to November and is a terrific potted specimen.”
The awards were judged by Garden Centre Association Chief Executive, Iain Wylie, Horticultural Week Technical Editor, Sally Drury and Horticultural Week Editor, Kate Lowe.
The award was presented to Wyevale Nurseries at a special after show reception attended by more than 200 exhibitors.
