GROW Update Senetti®

Earley Grow Update

May 2016

This month our product expert, Keith Gittens, reminds us of a rewarding alternative for early spring sales at a time when you are normally restricted to pansy, viola and primrose. 


Senetti® - a striking spring flowering option made up from pericallis hybrids.

Senetti® is an excellent product for early spring sales, thriving in cool temperature conditions. It is ideal for large 15-19cm pots and patio containers, where the plants produce up to 200 flowers in rich shades of blue and magenta.

From our cutting raised collection, Senetti® young plants are available in Earley’s paper pot 84 tray, for delivery weeks 45-50 and 02-05.

For more information on our planning weeks look on the inside back cover of the catalogue - page 103, alternatively call us on 01845 524511.

Secret of Senetti®


It is ideal for creating superb patio containers and, with its rich, long-lasting blooms, Senetti® produces a large plant with a mass of large single daisy flowers.

The secret of Senetti® is that it is the first genuine re-blooming pericallis. It also has better branching and is more tolerant to a wide range of temperatures. Cold-tolerant to approximately 1 - 2°C, it can be put straight outside at a time when you are normally restricted to pansy, viola and primrose.

In addition to being popular as a pot plant, Senetti®‘s excellent garden performance and undemanding nature means it is also emerging as a popular bedding plant best suited to the outdoors in semi shade.


Electric colour options


My favourite colour is Deep Blue but Senetti® is available in a range of vibrant colours, including bicolour options.

The Earley Senetti® range for 2016 includes Senetti® Magenta, Pink & Violet colour palettes. Worth highlighting is the blue collection, which features new colour Blue Bicolour 15, which is more compact than the standard Senetti®, and a little earlier flowering - similar to Pink Bicolour.

A new addition


Magenta has been added to the Senetti® Baby range, making this range a colourful offer. Suited to 10.5cm pots, Senetti® Baby is supplied unpinched for pot weeks 02 – 05.
