Industry recognises Earley Ornamentals with awards at prestigious show

Judges at the fifth HTA National Plant Show, which showcases the very best of British plant suppliers, have awarded Earley Ornamentals ‘Gold’ and ‘Best in Category’ for the company’s stunning Impatiens SunPatiens® ‘Electric Orange’.


Leading independent producer of young plants, Earley Ornamentals is delighted to receive the accolades, which are for the ‘Annuals’ category; one of five categories in the New Plant Awards, sponsored by Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) and attracting over 120 entries across all categories.


Earley’s on-trend orange

As the UK's primary distributor of SunPatiens®, Earley displayed two striking new colours, ‘Electric Orange’ and ‘Hot Coral’ at this year’s show, along with other colours from its SunPatiens® Compact series, but it was ‘Electric Orange’ that proved to be the judge’s favourite.

Great performer in the garden and at the checkout

SunPatiens® are becoming increasingly popular across the UK due to their excellent weather tolerance and disease resistance. Robust garden performers, this variety also provides garden centres with great added value sales opportunities throughout the summer season.

Commenting on receiving these awards, Earley Ornamentals’ managing director Simon Earley said: “We have been working hard to get the colours, the quality, reliability and performance of our plants exactly right for this year and it looks like our hard work has paid off. The standard of plants at this year’s show has been phenomenal and we feel very honoured to be recognised in this way.”

The ‘Electric Orange’ and ‘Hot Coral’ are available to order now for delivery Spring 2015.
