John Woods Nurseries plant range launched to help beginner gardeners

John Woods Nurseries has launched the Right Plant Right Place range, aimed at helping beginner gardeners choose the correct plants for difficult planting areas.

The range comprises 30 one-litre shrubs divided into groupings based on different gardening conditions - dry and shady, hot and dry, heavy clay, moist and shady, stony and chalky and windy and exposed - with five varieties in each.

Plants selected for the range include Sambucus 'Black Lace', Cornus 'Flaviramea', Euonymus 'Emerald 'n' Gold', Weigela Wine and Roses, Convolvulus cneorum and Hydrangea 'Selina'.

Sales manager Nigel Goodall said: "We have produced this Right Plant Right Place promotion so the novice gardener can go into a garden centre and choose the plants to suit them - it's preparing the new gardener to get started with plants that will do well in certain conditions."

Plants are available to retailers in multiples of two trays of eight plants in each variety, with planting instructions provided on each pot sleeve. Point-of-sale materials for the range include an A2 poster and bench edge.
