Ensuring the right young plants and on-trend colours are being grown is becoming increasingly important this year Earley said.
Earley Ornamentals identified four trends:
"Luxurious Romantic" for a sensory garden, with Nemesia Easter Bonnet adding fragrance and light lemon yellow and soft pink bicolour tones counterbalanced with stronger pops of colour sourced from for example, Dahlia Figaro Mix.
"Serene Harmony", an "elegant trend layered with tranquil shades of blue and natural greens", including Nemesia SunPeddle Blue Rose and Verbena Quartz XP Waterfall Mix.
"Contemporary Collection" inspired by cultural icons, especially the tones associated with Asian style and including SunPatiens Compact Orange, Gazania Sunbathers Tikal and Nemesia Sunsatia Plus Grenada.
Hot Mix "conjures up a sense of the warm, summer jungle" with Bidens Spotlight, Begonia Non Stop Joy Yellow, Cosmos Xanthos Light Yellow or Primula Everlast.
Managing director Simon Earley said: "The power of colour trends is growing year-on-year.
"As we saw last year, used alone or together, the appearance of Pantone’s two 2016 colours, Rose Quartz - a gentle pink and Serenity - a cool blue, was apparent everywhere from supermarket settings, homes and interiors to architecture and website design. It really demonstrates just how much demand there is to be on-trend.
"We’re delighted to see Pantone’s 2017 Colour of the Year is ‘Greenery’ – what better colour for ornamental horticulture.
"With a whole range of on-trend colours across our best-selling plant ranges, we’ve pulled together the ones we believe will achieve results for 2017, both from a gardening perspective and performance at the tills. These can be seen on our website."
