AGM seed range promises ‘ultimate guarantee’ of success
A NEW seed range aims to boost gardeners’ confidence by only offering varieties that hold a coveted Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
The new Award of Garden Merit seed range from Mr Fothergill’s comprises 61 flowers and 57 vegetables – all of which have been tried, tested and recommended by experts at the RHS.
Flower varieties have, where possible, been selected from the RHS Perfect for Pollinators list. The launch follows the appointment of Suffolk-based Mr Fothergill’s as the RHS’s preferred partner for licensed seed products.
The RHS’s Cathy Snow said: “The AGM seal of approval tells gardeners that the plant performs reliably in gardens and is the ultimate guarantee of quality.”
To carry the AGM logo, all plants in the range have been grown and tested in RHS gardens and judged by a forum of experts.
Plants only receive the award if they are proven to have excellent garden performance and are stable in form and colour. They also have to show “reasonable resistance” to pests and diseases during trials.
