Nursery owner Alan Wright of Essex-based Billericay Nurseries shared a collection of images he took on Halloween of SunPatiens that had been successfully grown from young plants supplied by Earley Ornamentals.
Commenting on the displays Alan said: “We’ve been buying SunPatiens from Earley Ornamentals for some time now and this year’s results were just incredible. We used Vigorous Lavender potted in Wk11, Vigorous Pink Pearl potted in Wk 11 and Vigorous Magenta. For larger pots we used Vigorous, which is good for landscape and garden beds too. For the smaller pots we planted SunPatiens Compact, which also suit window boxes and hanging baskets.
“As you can see, even though these photographs were taken at the end of October, the displays still have real depth of colour and look so healthy. This is why, as a retailer-grower selling direct to the public, we choose these reliable plants – they’re total winners!”
Earley Ornamentals Managing Director Simon Earley said: “As a primary UK distributor of SunPatiens our young plants are grown for class leading quality, reliability and performance from seed to flower to meet the needs of today's professional growers. It’s fantastic to see how well they perform once they leave Earley’s controlled environment.”
For 2019, Earley Ornamentals has introduced some new colours to the range as Simon Earley explains: “This year we’ve included new on-trend options Compact Orchid Blush and Vigorous Red and Rose Pink, all perfect for hot summers like we’ve just experienced.”
Bred to perform in sun, shade, rain or shine, from spring to autumn, SunPatiens are capable of growing under cooler conditions than standard New Guinea Impatiens, saving energy costs and ensuring a faster production time.
Designed for strong growth, rapid root development and a profusion of large flowers, SunPatiens are quick to establish, resistant to downy mildew and provide three times the coverage of traditional impatiens.
