Plants for Perennial will be widely available to buy from garden centres and stores across the UK from March.
The collaborative scheme between Perennial, the charity for people in horticulture and four major wholesale nurseries in Hereford and Worcester is raising awareness and funds to support all those who work with plants, flowers, grass, and trees.
Look out for:
- Dianthus ‘Pink Celebration’ from Allensmore Nurseries available from March
- Nemesia ‘Peaches and Cream’ from The Bransford Webbs Plant Company available from mid-March
- New addition Clematis ‘Prince George’ from New Leaf Plants available from Apri
- Salvia Cuello Pink and Cuello White from Wyevale Nurseries available from mid-June
Supporting retailers include select Waitrose stores and many leading garden centres, and an on-label charity message will appear on all the plants and a proportion of all sales will be donated to Perennial.
Perennial Corporate Partnership Manager Phil Swainston comments: “Plants for Perennial is an exciting and worthy collaboration between four renowned nurseries to highlight the services we provide to the commercial horticultural sector and spread the message that we’re here for all those working in horticulture who need help. It’s a great example of how businesses can come together in support.”
Managing Director at Allensmore, Mark Taylor (first from right) adds: “After a year in the making, I’m thrilled to see our Plants for Perennial heading to retailers and proud to be part of this joint effort to raise funds to support Perennial and our trade. If you spot our beautiful plants in-store, please buy one.”
