Hawkesmill expands alpine range to meet growing popularity

Hawkesmill Nurseries has introduced a wider range of alpines this season, with new size options and more varieties on offer.

New for 2017, all 9cm pots now come in re-usable trays of 12. A 1-litre pot option is provided as eight plants per tray, with 30 trays per trolley.    

Also available in this year's alpine range are mixed six-packs which come in 6 x 9cm pots per pack with colour carry handle, seasonal selection 14 packs to a shelf, 84 to a trolley.

All Hawkesmill Nurseries plants are supplied in square pots, rather than the standard round type.

Acaena, Ajuga, Aubretia, Dianthus, Phlox and Sedum are included in the ranges. 

Sales director Richard Evans said: "The Hawkesmill team have always loved their alpines and it seems that there is a growing trend for the consumer to be loving them more too.

"Gradually people are realising just how easy these are to grow and also just what a fabulously diverse selection of alpines is available nowadays.  So we are pleased to be offering another extensive range to our customers in 2017."
