Second welcome to the New Plants and RHS Trials blog

Posted by Graham Rice on 25 Apr 2008 at 04:15 PM

New plants. There are more and more of them accompanied by more and more hype. But we all like to see the latest varieties and to try those which look especially enticing in our own gardens.

So here I'll be bringing you news of the latest introductions - some too new even to be in the very latest edition of the RHS Plant Finder - like this gorgeous double white hardy geranium which I'll be telling you more about soon.

I'm sharing this space with the team from the RHS Trials Office at Wisley, and it's at the trials that the best of the new varieties often come to light. They'll be updating you on news from the trials, I'll be bringing news of the most interesting new plants - and where you can get them.

So check back here regularly. And if you're a nursery, a grower, a seed company, a plant breeder or a garden centre introducing something new - email me and tell me all about it. And in between reading this blog, and the other great RHS blogs, you can also keep an eye on what I'm up to on my Transatlantic Plantsman blog - where I've also sometimes been discussing new plants.
