Tours of the Nursery and how to get the most out of your agapanthus

29th and 30th July 2017

 

Fairweather’s have developed many new strains of Agapanthus that offer new colours, more compact selections, improved hardiness and extend the traditional flowering season. In order to offer uniform and vigorous plants all the 60 varieties that are commercially offered are produced in vitro, using tissue culture techniques that are also used on human cells. Initiation of the plants takes place in a UK laboratory with volume production then transferred to India and China.

Fairweather’s hold the Plant Heritage National collection of Agapanthus which contains over 500 named cultivars that are gathered from breeders across the world. The breadth of genetic variation and range, help the company make judgments about the introduction of new selections. Unique new plants that have good commercial prospects are protected in Europe by Plant Variety Rights and in the US by a patent.

Visit the Fairweather's Nursery on July 29th and 30th

Fairweather’s Nursery opens its doors once a year for the public to see the collection and its wholesale production nursery on July 29th and 30th 2017. Tours of the nursery with Patrick Fairweather will start at 11.30am and 2.30pm, including a demonstration of how to get the best from your Agapanthus, including tips on watering, feeding and dividing. Agapanthus, Lavenders and other perennials will be on sale throughout the weekend at special prices.

Visitors will also be able to see plants that form part of the Royal Horticultural Society Agapanthus trials which are also being held at RHS Wisley, that are being judged for the Award of Garden Merit.

The adjacent garden of Aline Fairweather who runs Fairweather’s Garden Centre in Beaulieu with her son is open all day for Cream Teas and refreshments.

Entry is £3.00 per person to the National Gardens Scheme. To date Fairweather’s have given over £10,000 to the charity which provides valuable support to Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Hospice UK plus other worthwhile charities.
