Gaura

These are from Walberton Nursery and breeding by David Tristram

Nemesia

These were all bred by Martine Tellwright in West Sussex, (previous owner of Fleurie Nursery before the purchase by Tristram Plants) and produced at Walberton Nursery.

New varietites of NG Impatiens are on trial at Cobbins Nursery and here are 4 from Danziger, Ball and Selecta One.

Impatiens

Sunpatiens

The Sunpatiens series plants were supplied by Earley Ornamentals and are surviving the challenging conditions of North Yorkshire where the sunshine can be extremely damaging to garden plants.

Dahlia

Dahlia plants came from Syngenta and Beekenkamp; with the gigantic Sincerity (Syngenta) and more compact varieties, Labella Maggiore Deep Rose and Grande Orange Bicolour (Beekenkamp)

Sincerity

Petchoa

The interspecific hybrids from Petunia and Calibrachoa also known as ‘Beautical’ attracted alot of interest and comment for the variety of colours and the compact habit. Visitors did not seem to be familiar with the name of the series.

Begonia
