Stay Ahead Autumn-Winter 2018

7 ways to stay ahead with the Earley Ornamentals pansy and viola range

Pansy Premier F1 Autumn Mix

We'd like to share with you our insight to help you select the right Earley Ornamentals pansy and viola products for Autumn/Winter 2018.

1. Best selling blotch

When it comes to pansies and violas, Blotch colours are the most popular here at Earley Ornamentals. Options like our best selling Pansy Premier Gold with Blotch or Blotch mixes are excellent commercial options.


2. Yellows and lemons

As we saw at the 2018 RHS Chelsea Flower Show, yellow is an on-trend garden colour for the season ahead. There are plenty to choose in the Earley range.

From rich Viola Vibrante Yellow Imp to contemporary Pansy Premier Lemon - yellow is the colour for Autumn/Winter 2018, and we believe 2019 too.

Yellow can also be found aplenty in the mixes available.

3. Size matters

The Earley Ornamentals range offers different flower sizes. Ranging from the Pansy Power F1, which offers huge 10+cm flowers, large flowered Pansy Premier F1 at 8cm to the smaller Ultima F1 with its innovative picotee flower type or Viola Rebelina F1, which offers masses of small flowers - ideal for baskets. 

4. Commercial winners

Low PGR requirement helps to deliver reduced growing costs. Plus, longer shelf life and better quality means less wastage for retailers. Whilst options that offer good winter-flowering capability and excellent garden performance are key for consumers.

A great commercial pansy all-rounder is the Earley Ornamentals Pansy Premier - suited to autumn, winter and spring cultivation.

5. Award-winning options

Easy-to-grow Pansy Freefall® XL Bright Yellow - bred by UK breeder Floranova - saw a win for Earley Ornamentals in the New Plant Awards at this year's HTA National Plant Show 2018.  It was awarded Silver in the Annuals category.

6. Flowering time uniformity

Flowering uniformity can be a challenge but popular ranges like Viola Vibrante guarantee that colours have been specifically selected for flowering time uniformity, ensuring all are ready to flower at the same time.

7. Buy UK

At Earley Ornamentals we develop our ranges to suit the British environment and economic climate. Because we understand the current market demands, we offer a flexible service to ensure our growers stay ahead and meet the needs of today's challenging retail sector.
