Genesis Plant Marketing Strike 'Gold'
At the recent Horticulture Week Business Awards, the category of Best Ornamental Plant Introduction - Nursery Stock went to Genesis Plant Marketing.
This new cultivar of Dryopteris, ‘Jurassic Gold’ was discovered on a nursery near the Jurassic coast of Dorset. After many years of breeding work by Bob Hollister of Country Garden Plants, propagation was established with the technical expertise of fern specialist Vitroplus.
The joint marketing efforts of Genesis Plant Marketing and the support of UK producer of young plants and liners Seiont Nurseries have already helped the plant to become a commercial success.
Launched at Four Oaks 2018
'Planteria' featured the launch of this plant, prior to Four Oaks 2018. It was the winner in the nursery stock category at the same event.
