Adding Value with Proven Winners A brand your customers can trust for great plants and bright ideas

This year we’ve launched the Proven Winners brand in the UK, but that’s not all. We’ve spent the year conducting consumer research, to make sure we’re offering you exactly what consumers want. Our research with consumer groups said they wanted high quality plants, and they wanted gardening to be easy with step by step instructions and planting ideas. So we’re offering you exactly that. Proven Winners varieties are trialled and tested for years all over the world to make sure they outperform other varieties in the garden - so we’ve got the ‘quality’ part covered.

Branded product launch at Plymouth Garden Centre

Our in store POS gives consumers recipe cards and inspirational posters with planting ideas to help make gardening easy.

The PW website, is full of monthly gardening advice and planting recipes, for gardeners to use at home. This means they will be successful with strong Proven Winners varieties, and will come back for more next year. The ‘where to buy’ list on the website directs gardeners to garden centres who sell Proven Winners varieties. Please contact us if you, or a retailer you know should be on this list. We’re also building up a database, and have started using social media too so that we can help you promote, and create demand for our products, and increase footfall into garden centres.

Branded Pots and labels

With all this hard work going on, make sure your customers know where they can find Proven Winners varieties with Proven Winners pots and POS materials.

Lobularia Princess

These Lobularia are like no others that have come before them. They outperform seed raised varieties by miles. Being sterile, they are extremely vigorous, and because they put no energy into setting seed they have an incredibly long bloom time. They create a great hanging basket or window box and are a perfect filler in combinations. In addition they have a delicious honey scent, and we have even found them to be hardy in our trials in very well drained situations in the garden. ‘Primavera Princess’ has variegated foliage that is proving to be very on trend at the moment, and ‘Princess in Purple’ produces airy clouds of flowers to create a purple haze in a pot or basket. ‘Snow Princess’ is a multi awardwinning variety for its garden performance.

‘Primavera Princess’

Nemesia Sunsatia® The Sunsatia® series are a unique range of Nemesia as they are the first series with such a range of vibrant colours to be produced from cuttings rather than seed. This means that they will not produce seeds as readily as some of the more traditional seed grown varieties. This leads to plants with far greater vigour and flower-power so you can enjoy the wonderful colours right through summer. The upright varieties have the best scent - ideal for tubs.
