Do It Delta - So Popular with Consumers!


It's official! Consumers just love our Do It Delta range of violas and pansies.


At a recent independent trial at a garden centre in the south east of England, five of our varieties appeared in the Top Ten voted for by the public, with FloriPro Services' violas voted 1st and 2nd.
Meadow Croft Garden Centre, situated between Chelmsford and Southend-on-Sea in Essex, ran its 12th annual Viola and Pansy Festival from 14-22 March 2014. It is the largest independent trial of its type in the UK, with seed of varieties submitted by breeders from around the world. Before opening to the public, it is on view to the trade and gardening press.

Rocky and Deltini First and Second
It has become a major attraction for consumers who flock to see the superb show of colour, including many new and experimental varieties which are on view for the first time. All plants are grown as a normal commercial crop, with no use of plant growth regulators.

It really is a great 'shop window' for all who enjoy these springtime favourites, especially as violas and pansies are already so popular with householders who wish to bring cheer and colour to their gardens as early in the year as possible. They can also buy the finished plants, which are replenished with back-up stock as the event progresses.

While they are at the Festival, the visitors are asked to vote for their favourites. When the event closes, the votes are counted and the Top Ten is announced. This year our Viola Rocky Orange with Purple Wing was the winner, with Viola Deltini Honeybee in second place. For good measure, Viola Deltini Copperfield was fourth, Deltini Rose Pink was eighth with Deltini Cuty in tenth. It's an achievement of which we are rather proud!

Do It Delta - the Market Leader!
We feel it is appropriate that visitors are asked to vote for their favourites as they are the end-users, and our success spurs us on to maintain the market-leading position of our Do It Delta range.
Consumers have their own section on our Do It Delta website, but growers too can visit for updates about our range, cultural advice and other useful information.
