T&M displays 2009 top launches

Black plants, in-house east European breeding, grow-your-own, eating raw and year-round colour were the themes at the launch of Thompson & Morgan's (T&M's) new plants for 2009 last week in Ipswich.

T&M's young-plant department continues to prosper with its tie-in to TV channel QVC, while Nigel Judd's professional division has doubled its range on offer to growers up to 550 varieties.

Top new launches were the Duchy range, in association with Prince Charles' charitable food company (see p13) and a new 17-packet children's range with the RHS, called Garden Explorers, which features 10 vegetables and seven flowers.
