It is very hard to predict how well new varieties will sell into the Garden Centre market. Up to 50 new varieties may make their way into our catalogue each year.
Old favourites like Delphiniums, Lupins, Aquilegia and Phlox sell in large numbers year after year. Sales for Delphiniums can reach up to 150,000 pots across the UK during the year covering 14 to 16 colours.
The 1 litre range is by far the main core of the business, as gardens become smaller with the design of new build properties. This size of pot can give you a greater choice and great value for money.
Autumn planting is ideal for a larger part of this range and many plants can give you colour late into the year in borders and containers. Asters and Phlox are great colour for this time of year. Look for Penstemons for late summer flowers as well. Asters and Phlox are very hardy plants; some Penstemons you may find will need a little frost protection if the winter is very hard. Best of all, these late summer perennials will brighten your borders and containers.
