AGM seed range prom­ises ‘ul­ti­mate guar­an­tee’ of suc­cess

Amateur Gardening - - Gardening News -

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.
