Petunia 'Cascadia Rim Magenta' among Ball Colegrave visitors' top choices

By Matthew Appleby Thursday, 19 September 2013



Top picks at this year’s Ball Colegave Summer Showcase lent heavily towards new varieties, but
garden performance remains a significant factor in the success of many new plants entering the bedding plant market, says the company. 
Top varieties at this years show, voted for by visitors, included the novelty Petunia 'Cascadia™ Rim Magenta', the velvety coloured Dianthus F1 'Sweet Black Cherry' and Begonia F1 'Whopper Mixed'. 
Interest in Patio Vegetables in particular tomatoes, peppers and strawberries continues to increase, say Ball Colegrave.
The top tasting tomato this year at the open days, by a clear margin, was the bright orange coloured cherry variety, Sungold.
