Plant Pyramid

A modern wonder of the gardening world

A modern wonder of the gardening world

The Plant Pyramid, supported by Peter Seabrook, returns to the Floral Marquee with four new satellite pyramids. The Pyramids will play host to a monumental display of up to four thousand plants, all new introductions for either 2018 or 2019.

The Pyramid will feature a brand-new clutch of Garvinea, the Garden Gerbera - the impressive flowers and its ability to grow in colder climates make Garvinea a flowering sensation. You'll also find a host of new plants including a new Echinacea, a Dianthus, a pot Alstroemeria and a garden Alstroemeria.

Other new varieties include Petunia x callibrachoa 'Beautical' and Nemesia ‘Lady Penelope’ a selection of pinks, crab apples, Laburnum ‘Yellow Rocket’, and Helianthus ‘Sunbelievable Brown Eyed Girl’.

The Plant Pyramid Stage

In addition, experts from stage sponsors, Westland Horticulture, will share top tips for indoor gardening, and the British Florist Association will demonstrate stunning floral displays for the home. Local Garden Centre staff including Fresh at Burcot will also be in attendance.
