Thompson & Morgan scoop top award for second time

February, 2010


Specialist breeders at Thompson & Morgan are over the moon after winning a major industry award for the second time.  Years of painstaking breeding work by a team of specialists were rewarded at The Grower of the Year Awards ceremony with the announcement that T&M had won one of the most important awards of the night. The result of more than seven years of specialist breeding work and a world exclusive, T&M’s Buddleja ‘Buzz’™ was named the Best New Plant Variety – showing major recognition for this ground-breaking new introduction. The work of T&M’s own plant breeder, Charles Valin, Buddleja ‘Buzz’™ is a real achievement in horticultural development, and literally thousands of plants were grown and discarded before the final variety was selected.


Already a runaway success with T&M customers, Buddleja ‘Buzz’™ is the first buddleja that has been specifically bred to be a dwarf variety. Ideal for growing in patio pots and containers, the variety is quite unlike traditional buddleja plants that have a reputation for growing too tall and becoming unruly. With its compact nature, it still boasts all the qualities its larger cousins are famous for, such as the huge sprays of pretty flowers that are known for attracting butterflies and wildlife into the garden, however the compact plants will grow to just three feet (one metre) high.


The win for Buddleja ‘Buzz’™ is the second time T&M has scooped the prize for the Best New Plant Variety, with the introduction of Pansy ‘Friolina’ taking the award in 2008. ‘Friolina’ is the world’s first trailing multiflora pansy, and extremely popular amongst T&M customers.
