Two nurseries in Hereford threw their doors open last week to hold their joint open days. The events – at Wyevale and Allensmore nurseries – were to allow plant buyers to see the businesses’ new product developments for the coming year.
Adam Dunnett, sales and marketing director at Wyevale Nurseries, said: “We were delighted with the response from all the customers who visited for our joint open days. It was a great opportunity for customers to view two of the country’s largest plant suppliers with 140 acres of container nursery space between us.
“We both showed off new varieties and ranges and the new product exhibition at Wyevale was particularly popular. Several new exclusive plants were launched including our Dahlia Candy Series range. We also had more than 400 votes cast and the winning hardy plant was a new variety of Jacobinia, which along with others will be featured at the Horticultural Trades Association National Plant Show in June.”
Coffee and lunch were provided on both days promoting Herefordshire food, as well as competitions with a selection of prizes.
