Five winning plants for 2020? Try these...

Wyevale Nurseries retail sales manager Colin Stanley has picked his top five plants for garden centres for 2020.


Colin explained: “I have selected five plants, which I think really show how we are at the forefront of new and innovative varieties and that display the diversity of our extensive range.”


 “We feel these plants will be very popular with retail customers as they all have a certain characteristic that will be very appealing to gardeners, whether it’s their colour, floral display, size or crop of fruit, we feel they are the best of the best for 2020.”









Dryopteris ‘Jurassic Gold’ is a brand-new addition, which erupts into golden new foliage in the spring. It is shade and moisture tolerant and will grow well in a patio pot or planted in groups for a striking gold contrast. This hardy fern will be available in a 3-litre pot in June 2020.


















Potentilla Double Punch Collection is a brand-new collection of breakthrough double flowering Potentilla in a strong colour range. Forming a neat and compact mound, these make ideal container shrubs or suitable for beds and borders.


The collection includes Potentilla ‘Double Punch Cream’, Potentilla ‘Double Punch Pastel’, Potentilla ‘Double Punch Gold’ and Potentilla ‘Double Punch Peach’.















Hydrangea ‘Runaway Bride Snow White’ is one of the most floriferous and vigorous hydrangeas, with masses of white lace cap flowers with a hint of pale pink and six times more flowers than the average hydrangea. The confetti like flowers form in garlands along the full length of the stem at every leaf joint from late spring/early summer well into autumn.






















 'Agapanthus ‘Fireworks’ has eye catching bi-colour blue and white blooms on supersize flower heads. It grows to a medium height to around 50-60cm.

















Raspberry ‘Yummy’ is a dwarf compact raspberry that will give a crop of fruit in its first year. It fruits throughout the summer and makes an ideal patio plant.
