Customer trials – update from Caroline Broome

Caroline has been sending us regular updates with photos of her trial products, but as we’re a little late adding them to the blog, please note that references to planting out times may be a bit out of date. We do apologise and will add updates more promptly from now on!

May/June 2013

Cornus Winter Flame is small, but showing good colour, now in the border. We shall see!

Anemone The Governor has enormous flowers only one or two were in flower, but these have survived being in bud during the snow.

Petunia Balcon Mixed – lovely strong plants.

And the Summer 2013 digitalis Illumination plugs are far stronger and healthier than their predecessors from last Autumn 2012.

The plastic tomato collars caused a stir at our NGS Open Day, because of the amazing results they produced deterring slugs & snails from our ligularia. And the good old tree lilies from trials 4 yrs ago are over 6ft tall!
