Garden Press Event 2020

The very popular Garden Press Event 2020 organised by the HTA & GIMA was again held at the Design Centre, Islington this week. (March 4).

Michael Warren reports on what caught his eye!

Products & Plants

Attracting well over 100 exhibitors covering a wide range of products and plants, it has been a Mecca for the Horticultural Press seeking material for their readers and followers on social media.

Thompson and Morgan were promoting their range of House Plants amongst other products. The boom in this sector continues. The Kalenchoe ‘Dolly caught this reporters eye with it’s Aquilegia style flowers.

Beacon Series

KinderGarden Plants, the range from Ball Colegrave which are now available in the garden centres, feature the introduction of the ever popular Impatiens (Beacon series) after eleven years of work to rid them from the devastating disease.

Stuart Lowen of Ball Colegrave (above) was enthusiastic about this re-introduction of such a popular bedding/container plant.

Whitewater Silver

Wyevale Nurseries are forging ahead with their plant production and sales. A particularly attractive Rosemary ‘Whitewater Silver’ was proudly shown by Ian Wright (below).

Gold Collection®

This was an appropriate time for Allensmore Nurseries to show Hellebores. Allensmore have tied up with breeder Josef Heuger to introduce the Gold Collection® with Helleborus ‘Rosado'. They also grow a wide range of other perennials at their Hereford location.
