Thompson & Morgan announced the launch of its new retail seed range for 2019/20 which will be available in garden centres from early July 2019.
The company is launching over 50 new seed varieties for the second year in a row. Amongst the flowers to be added to the range are the Cosmos ‘Apricot Lemonade’ and Nasturtium ‘Baby Deep Rose’; whilst the vegetable selection includes Dwarf Bean Caledonia, Spring Onion Totem and Watermelon Mini Love F1.

At their annual retail sales conference, it was decided to promote new seed varieties - Zinnia ‘Queeny Mixed’ as the 2019/20 Flower of the Year - and flavoursome, heart-shaped tomato, Gourmandia F1 as Vegetable of the Year.
Alongside the continued focus on innovation, another key objective for the upcoming season is to maintain even closer partnership with customers, offering bespoke and tailored solutions; from custom POS, to tailored ranges, to individual garden centre selling and promotional material.
Joseph Cordy, Thompson & Morgan’s Head of B2B Sales, said: “Here at T&M, we don’t believe in ‘one solution fits all’ and so we plan to continue to work in close partnership with our customers to find individual solutions to maximise their sales”.
“We’re thrilled to be offering this fantastic range for next season – and we’ve managed to also hold our seed prices for the second year in a row which is a great bonus for all our customers”.
Thompson & Morgan is also launching a number of new seed collections, including ‘Autumn Collections’ which aims to boost sales during the autumn months, as well as new ‘hotspot’ stands featuring ‘Packet to Plate’ and ‘Bred by T&M’ seed varieties.
A number of new complementary products will run alongside the seed range, including incredicoir – the latest product in T&M’s incredi range – a coir block which makes up to the equivalent of a 10 litre bag of peat-free compost once water is added.
