Thejoyofplants.co.uk presents Snowball (Viburnum) as their Garden Plant of the Month for February. Even when it’s not snowing, Viburnum brings snowballs to the garden, and if it does freeze, this garden plant stays green and brings an early spring-like invigoration into a garden lover's garden. Full story on news pages.
Good to see this joint initiative!
Two of the U.K.'s leading nurseries will be hosting a joint Open Day in March aimed at the retail industry. Hereford based Wyevale Nurseries and Allensmore Nurseries will hold their joint Customer Open Day on March 9 and 10. This is an excellent joint initiative and is to be commended. The timing is perfect for the Spring retail plant season and follows the British Plant Fair held the previous week at Stoneleigh.
Natives and Semi-Mature produce fast start!
Green Mile Trees report on a fast start to the New Year and new season! M.D. Christopher Scott said ' Basically everything is selling well across the board. Natives, ornamentals as well as hedging.' Their fresh new website is also stimulating great interest.
Sensible Move for Expo TCO!
We are delighted to learn that the Expo TCO trade event is being switched back 'from whence it came' in 2016. This will co-incide with GrootGroenPlus durng the first week of October. In some ways, this collaberation is along the lines of Plantarium and Groen-Direkt in August. This will enhance the Dutch region of Zundert as a major force in tree production.
Roses remain the Flavour of the Month!
There are no doubts that Roses continue to be one of the most popular plants around the globe. The current Breeder Focus features news from leading Danish breeder Roses Forever includes their Viking Roses® introduction for 2016 which was shown at IPM Essen last month.
