GROW Update Perennials

June 2016

If you’re looking for ways to create sales opportunities, here our product expert, Keith Gittens, explains how the Earley Perennials range can offer sales opportunities in autumn, spring and summer. 

104 Tray Format

With over 150 varieties of herbaceous perennials, alpines and ornamental grasses available, the Earley Perennials range provides an excellent way to extend the season

Available for spring or autumn potting, delivery dates are timed to maximise the sales opportunities. Whether you are looking to produce a large overwintered plant for early spring sales or a quick turn round crop for late summer, Earley has a selection of varieties and plug sizes to suit.

Depending on variety and time of year plug sizes vary from the 6cc cell 360 tray up to the 90cc cell 51 tray.

Here’s an overview of what there is to choose from in the extensive Earley Perennials range, alternatively call us on 01845 524511.
