Opportunity to show new varieties to 100,000 keen gardeners

Company: David Colegrave Foundation

Plant breeders and growers can be part of an exciting display of ‘new’ plants in tribute to Peter Seabrook planned for Gardeners World Live in June 2022.

Peter championed good new plants in the displays he created at shows for over 50 years.

Mighty Terrace

Neil Gow writes, “How could we honour him better than by incorporating your ‘new’ into this 2022 display?”

A team of people who have created show displays with Peter for years is creating a Mighty Terrace to feature new plants within the 80m² display in the show’s Floral Marquee.

How to get involved?

“Whether you have a new variety of summer bedding plant, hardy shrub, fruit or vegetable, we want to incorporate it into the display - and you will want it to be there for the public, approaching 100,000 keen gardeners, to see,” says Neil.

“All we need is a good potfull.”

Your plant(s) need not be grown in that pot, but could be plunged and surrounded by support plants to set off your main subject to create an inspirational look. “We do not mind if it is still in just its grower pot straight off your nursery!”

What else?

Peter was passionate about new plants. That was one of his driving forces behind Floral Fantasia the display at RHS Hyde Hall, near his home in Essex.

If you agree, your plants may be moved to the display there after GWL finishes.

Get in touch today and let the team know what plants you would like to bring.
