US (IL): National Garden Bureau's members showcase new varieties for 2015

Stunning images along with detailed descriptions of over 100 exciting new ornamental flowers and edibles from National Garden Bureau members are now available on the National Garden Bureau website.

This annual program is an important service to gardeners, retailers and garden writers as NGB's New Varieties program brings many of the best new varieties from NGB members (breeding companies, seed retailers, direct mail retailers and more) all together in one easily-accessible location. Garden retailers and their gardening customers are sure to find many inspiring varieties for 2015 that will appeal to both new and experienced gardeners.

National Garden Bureau president Claire Watson, from member PanAmerican Seed, explains, "Each year our industry introduces an exciting selection of new and improved varieties of both flowers and edibles. One of the member benefits is the promotion of the best of these new varieties to consumers via all the National Garden Bureau’s digital media exposure. This is certainly one of the most visited pages on the NGB website so it's a great way to support the launch of new products.”

Besides being featured on the NGB website, these new varieties will also be highlighted over the next twelve months in bi-monthly NGB e-newsletters under "New Varieties." In addition, these varieties will be grouped in assorted sets to be featured on Social Media and in various gardening columns and blogs. Pinterest users should look for these New Varieties as they are pinned to our Pinterest boards over the next few months.

A current list of NGB members who have submitted their most-interesting new varieties and new genetics can be viewed here.

Any companies interested in NGB membership so that they too can have their new varieties featured can email for more information.

Retailers should request these new varieties from their wholesale suppliers to meet demand next spring.
