Two exclusive plants in RHS Chelsea’s Great Pavilion

RHS Chelsea is the most prestigious gardening show in the world and Suttons has two plants from their new range in the Great Pavilion – and one of them is on our own Harperley Hall Farm Nurseries stand.

The four-time gold medal winners (and President’s Award winners) from near Stanley, County Durham, will show Edelweiss Bergman Blossom of Snow, Suttons new UK exclusive, which will be entered into the RHS Chelsea Plant of The Year competition. Find the stand at GPD186.

This new variety, exclusive to Suttons, grows larger low clumps, flowers longer and has bigger flowers than most other varieties. With their long, straight and strong stems, they are also ideal for use as a cut flower.

Dwarf self-fertile Mulberry

World exclusive Dwarf Mulberry Charlotte Russe (Morus rotunbiloba Matsunaga), a dwarf self-fertile variety, will appear on Peter Seabrook’s/HTA stand, GPE169.
