Selection Process

Before a plant "wears" a Beds & Borders label, it must prove itself as a vigorous performer in our region and possess outstanding qualities in the context of garden design. Plant trials occur continuously in our greenhouses and trial gardens but our plant trials are unlike most others. We grow plants in garden settings and in container designs to simulate home gardening conditions. We assess how well a plant performs in competition with other plants and examine its strength in the context of design. Newly announced plant introductions from international breeders such as Proven Winners, The Flower Fields and Ball Horticultural grow alongside Beds & Borders plants that we source from a variety of suppliers, worldwide.
