New Earley Pansy and Violas for 2014

A progressive programme of ongoing investment, innovation and development has also led the company to add to its Earley Pansy and Viola range, which now features a total of 169 colours and mixes.

True Blue and Gold with Blotch have been introduced to Pansy Premier, this variety now offers a total of 16 colours and mixes. Also new is the large flower Viola Grandissimo, which is available in eight novelty colours and is ideally suited to high density pot and pack work, and looks fantastic in patio containers.

The recently expanded Pansy Power now includes eight new colours. The Power series, with its extra-large flowers, contains a selection of clear faces as well as blotched and bicolours.

Heat tolerant and non-stretching, Pansy Power is ideal for pot production in August when temperatures can be high. Maintaining a large flower, this series has a compact habit even in hot conditions, where often others will struggle. Its low PGR requirement also makes it a particularly economical plant to produce.


Earley Ornamentals’ managing director Simon Earley is always looking to develop the Earley range. He explains: “The new additions have been developed to meet the ongoing customer requirement for innovation. Each of the varieties has been developed and tested on-site and we believe each one will be a great addition to our customers ranges, as it remains important to us, here at Earley, that all of our high quality young plants are bred to meet the needs of today's professional growers. 

Committed to producing quality young plants for the UK market, Earley Ornamentals is a leading, independent family-run business that is proud to be the selected partner for many of the UK's leading commercial and retail growers.

With an extensive product range of high quality stock designed to meet the needs of today's professional growers, over 180m young plants, made up of 1,700 varieties, are grown each year at Earley’s state-of-the-art 12-acre site near Thirsk, North Yorkshire.
