Kernock promotes early flowering spring plants to kick start season

Kernock Park Plants is hoping to bring the start of the spring season earlier by promoting a collection of early flowering varieties.

The Proven Winners Spring Fling collection of garden plants has been put together to encourage gardeners to choose plants that flower earlier than normal.

The Proven Winners brand has selected three varieties gardeners can use for early flower flushes.

The Rysi series and the Winter collection of Erysimums by Proven Winners, flower early on in the spring and come in yellows, pinks and oranges.

Tiarellas have pretty foam flowers and trail beautifully from pots and baskets, says Kernock.  The variety 'Morning Star' has strong bronze stars on its green foliage and fluffy pink foamy flowers that shoot up in spring.

'My Oh My' is a Myosotis that makes a cool accompaniment to warm and fresh spring colours. It creates a mist of sky-blue Forget-Me-Not flowers in early spring, and has a compact habit that makes it perfect for pots and planting recipes.

Proven Winners will have planting recipes on its website in early spring.

Kernock recently ran a successful campaign to promote autumn planting with the Proven Winners Autumn Magic range of plants.

I will not be importing oaks this season. Will you?

I find myself in a difficult situation. A few weeks ago I was fortunate to be present to hear details of imminent changes to regulations concerning Oak Processionary Moth (OPM) and oak trees. I heard details, asked questions and probed the implications of these changes. That may not sound like a difficult position to be in, yet I am uneasy.

Lobby groups jumping onto fashionable campaigns, often to promote their own interests, can do much more harm than good. Take, for example, the move against black polythene plant pots and containers.
