Wyevale Nurseries supplies new plants for HTA Chelsea garden

Wyevale Nurseries has supplied five new plant introductions to be used for the Horticultural Trades Association's (HTA) Chelsea Flower Show garden, '40 Sunbury Road'.

Garden writer Peter Seabrook is behind the garden industry Chelsea show garden, which will involve 100 growers and suppliers, and celebrates his 40 years at The Sun.

Wyevale Nurseries product development manager Ben Gregory said: "We’re delighted to be involved with this show garden and release our new plants for the first time this year. As well as the new plants for 2017 we have also supplied five other relatively new introductions that have been very popular.

"The objective of the ‘40 Sunbury Road’ show garden is to create a typical suburban back garden that consumers can relate to, while at the same time inspiring and providing some new and interesting ideas that could easily be copied. The title of the garden’40 Sunbury Road’ also celebrates Peter’s 40 years as gardening correspondent for The Sun.

"The Chelsea Flower Show is the perfect chance for the general public to see what new varieties we have that will be appearing at their local garden centre this May and June and how they can be used in their own gardens.

The new plants supplied are:

  • Salvia Little Kiss a new bi-colour salvia.
  • Scabious Kudo White an extremely floriferous new white flowering scabious perfect for patios offering colour from May until frosts.
  • Hydrangea ‘LA Dreamin’ a new bicoloured Hydrangea that produces pink and blue flowers on the same plant.
  • Hydrangea ‘Doppio Bianco’ a beautiful new white double flowering Hydrangea that opens as a lacecap but fills out into a mophead.
  • Lavender ‘The Princess’ a fantastic new hardy French lavender. Bright, fat, vibrant deep pink flags and is a true garden performer.

Wyevale also supplied Ligustrum Sunshine, Phormium Chocomint, Scabious Kudo Pink, Antirrhinum ‘Pretty in Pink’ and Viburnum ‘Kilimanjaro Sunrise’.
