2018 top plant varieties revealed - the industry has voted
Ball Colegrave's Trial Grounds facility at West Adderbury not only gives the company's Product, Sales and Technical teams the opportunity to evaluate current and potential new varieties, but also demonstrates to customers some truly innovative and inspirational ideas for growing, planting and displaying so many outstanding plant products...

This year over 3,500 Nurserymen, Retailers, Parks, Landscapers and Home Gardeners visited the Summer Showcase at Ball Colegrave.

They voted for their 'Favourite Plant Variety' with a blue marker flag and with over 1300 catalogue varieties, 200 new varieties and 700 experimental products on display, there was certainly plenty to choose from!

After plenty of flag counting each day, I am pleased to attach the results of this year's 'Favourite Plant Variety' chosen by customers and Home Gardeners, giving us a good indication on what's likely to be 'Hot' in Garden Centres for the 2018 season.

 The winners of this year’s Summer Showcase 'Blue Flag Favourite Varieties' which are:

1st NEW Petunia 'Ovation Dark Heart (P)'

2nd NEW Celosia ‘Dragon’s Breath™’

3rd NEW Petunia 'Amore™ Queen of Hearts (P)’

2018 promises to be even better show... and not to be missed!  Please keep in touch with us as we will be releasing next year's dates very soon.
