The Award of Garden Merit (AGM) issued by the Royal Hoticultural Society (RHS) helps gardeners find reliable, consistent plants that will provide particularly good value in the garden.The award is granted after trials at the RHS’ garden at Wisley in Surrey and/or assessment at specialist collections or discussion at meetings. There is a set list of criteria that plants have to meet to be deemed worthy of the AGM. For more information on the AGM please visit the RHS Website.
Nursery owner, Tim Fuller, has been involved with judging the trials at RHS Wisley since 2008.
Very pretty cream margined selection of Box. Grow it as a free standing shrub and don't clip it for the best effect - this also seems to reduce problems increasingly seen with box. 1.2m in 10 years if you're lucky.
AGM Beautiful silver veined, lance shaped evergreen leaves. A trailing/climbing form that will self cling to a suitable surface. Best in at least some shade in most soils except wet. Can be pruned to size.
AGM A elegant species with slender bright reddish pink flowers with purple corollas and red filaments. Smallish but broad leaves try to be evergreen. Borderline hardy - drained soil in a sheltered position, light shade. 60cm?
AGM Unusual lanceolate leaves on a willowy upright plant producing masses of elegant red and purple flowers from midsummer. Distinctive reddish stems. Should be hardy in drained soil, best in some shade.
AGM Beautiful narrow golden leaves on this elegant hardy fuchsia, often tinted red with cooler weather. Delicate looking red flowers drip from the stems in summer and autumn. Potentially to 1.5m but usually less.
AGM This brilliant hybrid from Cambridge Botanic Garden has intense blue flowers with white centres from May to July and September onwards. Open position in average soil. 60cm x 90cm. Named after a street in Cambridge.
