2024 Bedding and Perennial Catalogues Launched by UK Young Plant Producer
Leading UK young plant producer Earley Ornamentals has launched its brand-new bedding and perennial catalogues for 2024. The catalogues showcase an impressive range of new varieties, series, and colours, as well as breeder improvements.
The Osteospermum Senoritas® is the highlight of the 2024 bedding range, with twelve new colours added. This bright-coloured plant has exceptional growth capacity, and it delivers early uniform flowering across all colours. The Earley fuchsia collection has also been expanded, with 26 additional varieties and now includes over 80 total options across Bush, Hardy Bush, Trailing and Giant Trailing.
New additions in the Seed Raised category include tall and open-faced Antirrhinum, DoubleShot™ F1 Mix, and the versatile and compact Antirrhinum, Twinny F1 Mix, which is ideal for landscapes, beds and pots. The popular Gazania Kiss now features two new colours, and Gazania Zany Sunny Side Up is a new addition with its numerous large colour-stable flowers. New colours feature in the Impatiens Beacon® range, which is an extremely versatile plant with high resistance to Downy Mildew.
New commercial additions for the Autumn to Spring Seed Raised Cyclamen group include new high-performing Metis® plants, Indiaka®, which produces a profusion of long-lasting flowers and Super Serie® F1 Carino Fuji Mix and Crayon.
Other key additions to the Seed Raised category in the Primula collection include five unique Novelties and well-proportioned Colibri F1 and Danique with its bright and colourful large flowers, and there are new colours in the best-selling Charlie F1 range. The new RAESberry F1, with its bright and striking five-colour mix, is set to be a popular option in 2024.
The Cutting Raised category has been expanded further with additions to the retail-popular Germanium and Marguerite ranges, including new colours in Maguerite Dana and the colourful new series, Marguerite Simba®, which is compact and early flowering.
The perennial catalogue includes many plants that are new to the market. New additions have been made to the extensive Premium Perennials collection, as well as to the Herbaceous Seed Raised and Dianthus groups. Additions include the distinctive burgundy-purple Agapanthus Everpanthus® and the Dianthus Alpine Electric Dreams® for an abundance of striking three-tone, electric pink flowers with a gentle clove scent. The new varieties Perovskia Prime Time and Lavandula options are also now available.
“We have carefully curated the 2024 range to include new commercial products that reflect the latest market trends. These new additions further enhance our comprehensive selection of young plants, including those that are wildlife-friendly, easy to grow, fragrant and, most importantly, weather-tolerant for heat, dry and wet conditions,” said Simon Earley, managing director of Earley Ornamentals.
“It’s not only the range we’ve been working on for the year ahead. We’ve also optimised our 12-acre site for efficiency and capacity, making significant improvements in 2023. These include a new building, new filling and seeding lines, a germination chamber and six automatic irrigation booms, increasing our production capacity by 25%”
