This is not the only place I'm writing about new plants. Last month I wrote a piece for the Daily Telegraph about the top ten new perennials this spring. You can read it here.
And over the last year I’ve been posting on new plants over on my Transatlantic Plantsman blog. You can find them all here. Recent ones include one on the two newcomers in the latest RHS Plant Finder which are stocked by the most nurseries (a Brunnera and a Salvia), one on a strange new polyanthus, one on a prolific new clematis, one on new drought-tolerant perennials, one a new blue impatiens and one on new epimediums bred by Robin White of Blackthorn Nursery.
Finally, for the last few months I’ve also been writing a regular article about the
RHS trials for the monthly magazine Garden Answers. Each month I pick
some of the trials which are looking good at the time, or trials whose
results have been decided, and give you some background plus some
pictures of the interesting varieties. In the May issue you’ll find information on the trials of dwarf
pinks, irises, courgettes, cherry tomatoes and verbascum.
