Last week i visited Florafest 2014 which is a trade only event organized by Young Plants Ltd at there offices in Warwickshire.
This is where Nursery's, Garden Centre's and Councils come to see all the latest variety's on offer that they may want to stock or grow next year. One of the high lights of this years show was the confetti garden which is a great new concept where 2-3 cuttings in one plug plant. They will be in flower in six weeks from potting up all are colour coordinated so all the hard work is done for you. They are ideal for pots, hanging baskets or planted out in the borders well worth looking out for in your local nursery.

|Lobularia YOLO French Vanilla|

|Petunia Potunia Purple Halo|

There where lots of new petunias on show so many great new colours and markings i will mention some in a separate post.
There was also a display area showing Garden centers and Nursery's the best way to display all these new variety's. All in matching and complimentary colours so the hard work is done for you just plant them out or pot them up. It was a great show well worth the visit and i will definitely be back next year to see what is new for 2016.
