The Warwickshire based family business has chosen to offer this plant to coincide with their?40th anniversary.

You will be able to view the new Geum in the New Plant Area at the National?Plant Show.

Richard Evans,?Sales Director?said “We?re really looking forward to unveiling Geum ‘Scarlet Tempest’ at this year?s show. The plant features masses of scarlet flowers that bloom all summer long. It also contrasts beautifully with attractive green foliage. It?s a great one for growing in patio pots or in mixed perennial borders. It has great potential for our amenity customers for use in landscape projects too?

As well as launching a new plant at the show, Hawkesmill Nurseries will be showcasing their new Summer Herb Collection. There will also be some exciting news on the new Collections and Planters available from Autumn 2017.
