Sales and marketing director Adam Dunnett said: "The launch of Forsythia ‘Spring Show Off’, which was named by us, in the States was hugely successful and it will form an important part of the range we’re offering to garden centre plant buyers for 2015.

"Also new are: Buddleja ‘Sugar Plum’, Penstemon ‘Margarita BOP’, Rhodanthemum ‘Pretty In Pink’ and Helichrysum ‘Ruby Cluster’ to name but a few."

As well as these new introductions, Wyevale Nurseries launched a new, re-branded, 2015 promotional catalogue that includes 20 new plant promotions, as well as many of the old favourites at the 25-26 June show.

Dunnett added: "This year we have seen some significant changes to the company, we have re-structured from three separate businesses into one, with our container plant, tree and transplant (hedging) companies now all trading as Wyevale Nurseries.

"In celebration of this we have developed a new brand for our point of sale, with a fresh, contemporary look – where the plant image is king.

"The HTA National Plant Show signals the start of an exciting new chapter for our business. We are a successful company and as such we can never stand still. Our new brand is part of our drive to lead the industry into a fast moving, flexible, customer driven era."
