Dümmen Orange launches new website, Ball Colegrave publishes spring additions and Earley launches new catalogue

Dummen's online product catalogue and renewed website is available in nine languages, and shows real time availability, while Ball's 2017 Spring Additions brochure includes more than 30 new varieties introduced since it issued its 2016 Plant Catalogue.

Dümmen Orange's renewed website offers most products incorporated into an online catalogue that offers distinguishing features such as easy filtering and live availability tracking. It gives customers a digital way to get the same information as the current print catalogue, shows regional availability, and allows customers to pick their products and save and view their selections.

The 2017 Spring Additions brochure from Ball Colegrave is available to download from its website http://www.ballcolegrave.co.uk/PdfAssets/pdfpage.aspx?pdfid=1413

Many of these late plant introductions were identified via a thorough trialling process in summer 2016 at the Trial Grounds at West Adderbury and also some of which were chosen by customers and the gardening public too as their favourite plants on show.

Highlights includes new novelties for the patio plant market such as Calibrachoa Punch, Lavender Bandera Pink and Petunia Amore Queen Of Hearts.

A record 3,000 trade and home gardeners visited this year’s Summer Showcase. The 2017 Trade Summer Showcase dates are now set for 10-28 July.  See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOCJ_t1525s
