UK Grower Focus
This month we focus on Earley Ornamentals and their range of young plants.
Earley Ornamentals is a leading UK producer providing a flexible service for growers looking to stay ahead and meet the needs of today’s challenging retail environment. Their philosophy of delivering reliability, expertise and an extensive range of first class young plants has enhanced their market profile.
With time poor consumers chasing instant colour and garden spaces changing year on year, consumer behaviour and buying trends are evolving.
1,700 Varieties Grown Each Year
Today, over 180m young plants, made up of 1,700 varieties, are grown each year at Earley Ornamentals. In addition to being the UK's primary distributor of SunPatiens®, Earley offers an extensive range of young plants for all seasons.
Constantly focusing on its product range to align with current market influences, the company has introduced a host of additions in Earley’s 2018 Range Update that deliver bright colours and new commercial growing opportunities.
Also new for 2018 is Earley Ornamentals’ Product Heroes - those plants are predicted to be the winners for 2018 whilst the new Earley Super Bloomers collection meets the requirement for more robust plants that offer good vigour, structure and prolific flowering.
Most Popular Nemesia
An option for extending summer sales, with one or two pinches, plants in 1 - 2 litre pots make floriferous bushy plants for impulse sales throughout the summer and offer longevity of flowering well in to autumn.
The scented Nemesia is most popular for 2018 as the Earley Nemesia range continues to grow in popularity and it’s the scented varieties that are the Nemesia winners this year with Wisley Vanilla coming out on top!
Especially suited to UK gardens, this Nemesia star offers blush white flowers with a rich vanilla scent – ideal for creating scented displays that flower prolifically.
Commercial Primula Options
This versatile yet commercial Earley Primula range includes Primroses, Primula and Polyanthus that deliver early, mid and late season flowering, excellent display combinations, bright colours, and large and double flowers.
With genetically compact options available, as well as Fleuroselect approved novelties and designer mixes, there is plenty of choices for growers, retailers and landscapers alike.
Extend the Summer with Earley Ornamentals' Super Bloomers. This collection is a range of robust plants that offer good vigour, structure and prolific flowering. Super Bloomers can be combined with perennials to create mixed patio pots of strong colour that will not fade in sunlight.
All of the Earley Ornamentals Super Bloomers are available in the 144 glue plug tray, except SunPatiens® Hot Coral and Lilac, which are both available in an 84 tray size. The Super Bloomers collection includes seed raised and cutting raised options.
