Where are nurseries going?

Patrick Fairweather’s article from newPlantsandFlowers and Fairweather’s Newsletter.

Patrick Lavender and PlantHaven (1)“Where are nurseries going?”, asks Patrick Fairweather of UK based Fairweather’s Wholesale Nursery rhetorically in a recent mailing. He notes that during the last 2 years significant changes in the supply of young plants to our customers have been seen. “Large growers are been squeezed on price by multiple retailers who in turn expect reduced prices of young plants. Price squeezes are often at the expense of range, so the customers of the likes of B&Q and Wyevale Garden Centres would seem likely to find reduced ranges in future. New and expanding players such as Waitrose and Next hopefully will bring new gardeners to the market, growing rather than taking existing business.”

Lets Twist and shout!

Agapanthus Twister from Fair weather'sAgapanthus Twister

Agapanthus ‘Twister’ is deciduous, hardy and bi-colour. It’s a great addition to any Agapanthus range or as a stand-alone product. Bred by Andy de Wet in South Africa, this unique Agapanthus is the first to market that is deciduous and bi-colour. Twister has big, full, prolific, bright flowers and its hardiness means it can be planted in a garden border or as a stunning patio centrepiece. Twister is available as 9cm from August 2015. We also offer a 6cm. Jumbo plug for orders over 500 placed by late April. Contact sharon@fairweathers.co.uk
