The 2017 Spring Additions brochure from Ball Colegrave includes over 30 stunning new varieties introduced since the issue of the 2016 Plant Catalogue, and is now available to download at:

Many?of these late plant introductions were identified via a thorough trialling process this past Summer in the Trial Grounds at West Adderbury, some of which were chosen by customers and the gardening public too as their favourite plants on show.

Highlights includes new novelties to excite the booming patio plant market such as the rich bicolour flowers of Calibrachoa Punch, the spectacularly neat habit of the French Lavender Bandera Pink and the latest colour break in Petunia breeding set to steal the hearts of home gardeners this Summer; Amore? Queen Of Hearts.

A record 3,000 trade and home gardeners visited this year?s Summer Showcase, a key event in the horticultural industry calendar for identifying innovative new varieties, plant collections and colour themes. The 2017 Trade Summer Showcase dates are now set for Monday 10th to Friday 28th July. For the Home Gardener there is a special evening; Wednesday 19th July, 4 ? 8pm. Please save theses dates in your diary and join Ball Colegrave for a truly inspirational day.
