New Flower Varieties Seed Range

We have expanded our flower range with the introduction of eleven new and four exclusive varieties for the 2018 season, all of which promise colourful backdrops as well as distinctive shapes and blooms.

Verbena-Scentsation-new-Mr-Fothergills-flower-seed-varietyVerbena Scentsation (RRP £2.69 for 50 seeds) is our own super-scented compact variety. Developed from an unusual specimen discovered by trials manager Brian Talman. An annual verbena not only pretty enough for patio pots, but also has the potential to be a scented star in vases and posies. This half hardy annual flowers from summer to autumn. The plants grow up to 20cm high and create a beautiful carpet of fragrant pink, white and bright purple flowers.

Sweet Pea Lady Salisbury (RRP £2.45 for 20 seeds) is named after the patron of Capel Manor College, Lady Salisbury. Lady Salisbury is a passionate gardener as reflected in the magnificent grounds at Hatfield House. She has visited the Mr Fothergill’s trials ground and demonstrated a keen interest in our work in ensuring the quality of seed supplied. The easy-grow annual is ideal for use on trellis, fences and frames, offering a long summer of colour and fragrance. The classic, highly scented, grandiflora blooms are cream and white, many with picotee edges in blue, pink or lavender. Being long-stemmed it is superb for cutting as well as garden display.

Other exclusive flowers added to the range include: Calendula Orange Flash (RRP £2.29 for 75 seeds enough for 50 plants) which is an uniquely bicoloured, dwarf variety with double blooms in warm tones of orange, apricot and caramel up to 10cm across. Plants are attractive with a nice bushy habit. Adds beautiful colour and style as a cut flower in arrangements. Excellent in landscapes and borders where it exhibits impressive garden performance. Cosmos Double Dutch White (RRP £2.29 for 30 seeds) has large double and semi-double, extremely showy, long flowering blooms. Plants are tall with an attractive bushy habit that makes it an ideal border variety.
