STAFF at Wyevale Nurseries are celebrating today (September 11, 2018) after their new plant Agapanthus ‘Fireworks’ won a New Product award at GLEE.
Wyevale Nurseries entered the plant into the Plant, Seed & Bulb category at the trade show at the NEC in Birmingham and were delighted it was named as the winner.
Colin Stanley, Retail Sales Manager at Wyevale Nurseries, said: “We’re thrilled that such a glorious plant has won this prestigious award in the New Product Showcase. The Agapanthus ‘Fireworks’ has bicoloured blue and white blooms that explode into life bringing a fabulous display to borders or patios. Who says fireworks can only be for a dark night?
“We are the only nursery in the UK to be growing the plant. What’s special about this agapanthus is its flower heads. They are supersize and are densely packed with delicate trumpet flowers giving maximum impact with intricate detail. This plant will be ready to sell to buyers in June 2019.”
The product selection available from Wyevale Nurseries is enviable across the industry and the talented team regularly introduces new, award-winning plant varieties.
Its main business is to supply garden centres, landscape contractors, local authorities, foresters and landowners with a comprehensive array of trees, shrubs, hedging, herbaceous and specimen plants.
