You’ll love Amore Queen of Hearts

Like petunias? Then you’ll love three new trailing varieties in Mr Fothergill’s Spring Planting Flowers, Fruit and Vegetable 2017 catalogue.

They were chosen not only for their unique colour combinations and length of flowering but also for their remarkable ability to continue flowering unscathed even during spells of heavy rain.

Perfect for hanging baskets, Amore Queen of Hearts has masses of bicolour blooms of yellow and rosy red.

East Anglian-bred Designer Buzz Purple has large, bright flowers with a contrasting lime green edge and a darker centre, while Designer Ink Splash has large violet heads, each with a soft, central white star and contrasting white picotée.

Five plants of any of the three vegetatively-propagated introductions cost £8.95, but two packs can be ordered for just £7.45 each – a saving of £3.
