Many first-time exhibitors will be showcasing new product ranges and varieties, alongside some more familiar participants.

There are 20 companies booked, with a further five on a waiting list as CHA negotiates with IPM for additional space, which it is due to receive this week.

 

Rose breeder David Austin Roses will be showing its three new English Roses from the pavilion in Hall 10 - ‘Olivia Rose Austin’, ‘The Lady of the Lake’ and ‘The Poet’s Wife’.

Newcomer Pictorial Meadows provides perennial seed mixes which are used in both commercial and domestic environments to create flower meadows and the company is now looking to introduce the concept to a wider international audience.

Custom design labels, packaging and Point of Sale experts PPC Labels return for a sixth consecutive year, having seen a "dramatic" increase in demand for Point of Sale material in 2014, including trolley end posters and shelf edge strips.

The Guernsey Clematis Nursery will be displaying a new concept of clematis Chelsea Boulevard Evipo100(N) in a hanging basket. This new clematis cultivar which has been developed by Evison and Poulsen.
