Digitalis ‘Illumination Pink’ wins top Chelsea award

RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year 2012

Digitalis ‘Illumination Pink’ is only in its first year of sales at Walberton Nursery, being an exclusive introduction for 2012, and has already won one of Chelsea’s coveted top prizes.

The plants grown at Walberton were entered for the ‘RHS Plant of the Year 2012‘ Award by Thompson & Morgan. With Digitalis ‘Illumination Pink’ announced the unanimous winner today it is anticipated that the few remaining plants of the 20,000 produced for this season will be snapped up, thanks in part to this excellent accolade. Operations Director Marc Jones commented, “It is a really great honour; I know that everyone here involved in its growing will be extremely proud of this achievement. After the gloomy weather these past weeks, this will give staff a real boost!”

Whilst Thompson & Morgan bred this rare variety, Walberton Nursery and The Farplants Group have the exclusive right to grow and sell this product in a 3 litre pot format.

Well done to everyone involved at Walberton for producing such a fantastic product!
