Ivy Geranium 'Focus Red Ice' was a smash hit last year and is back in spades! It offers very consistent variegation in the flower, nice zoning on the leaf and has a vigorous growth habit in comparison to the other bicolour varieties.
The Sarita series is looking great for this year as well, with colours like:
- 'Wild Salmon'
- 'Soft Pink'
- 'Neon Sizzle'
- 'Lilac Splash'
|Geranium Sarita 'Sunstar Red'|

|New Guinea Impatiens|
This week we have filled the New Guinea Impatienstables, to the north of the cashier area on tables N1 to N7, including the Sun Patiens and Sun Harmonies which are becoming more popular as gardeners begin to see their potential. These type of Impatiens are able to tolerate a lot more direct sun than the regular New Guineas, in fact in our summer trials, we placed some in a west facing flowerbed and they performed quite well.

|Bloomin' Beautiful Begonias|
The Begonia tables, to the south of the cashier area (table S2 to S7), are also full with the Non Stop, Illumination and the Breezy Tuberous Begonias--the last two being trailing types.
The nice darker leaved Tuberous Begonias, the Non Stop Mocca series are really quite stunning with contrasting bright flowers. New this season is the Non Stop Mocca 'Cherry'.
|Begonia Illumination 'Golden Picotee'|
|Begonia Mocca 'Deep Orange'|
We also have a good selection of yellow, light peach, red, orange and bi-colour shades of Reiger Begonias available on table A2 south.

|Gerberas: Sunny Colour for your Patio|
The bright and beautiful Patio Gerberas look sensational in containers on patios, porches and balconies. The large and successive flowers can be enjoyed outdoors throughout the spring and summer months or can be cut and placed in a vase to brighten an indoor space.
We have a good selection this season ranging in colour from soft pink, bright fuchsia, orange, red, yellow and purple, all these can be found along the north wall on table N9.

|Patio Gerbera 'Serengeti'|
|Patio Gerbera 'Smoky Mountain'|

Good Ol' Fuchsias
The old traditional fuchsia is a crop that is still full of steady and showy performers well worth considering adding to your shade basket or shade planter. There are some beautiful colours available in both upright and trailing varieties on table B3 and B4.
Single flowering Marinka produces loads of blossoms over a perfectly uniform plant and is a favourite of ours, and is also one of the only true red fuchsias. Varieties that are up and coming are New Millennium, Blacky, Voodoo and Dancing Flame, to add to the traditional popular varieties such as Lena, Dark Eyes and Swingtime.
