Thompson & Morgan - Awards

Each year, awards are given to horticultural companies for either their new plant introductions or for their performance within their particular sector of activity. Over the years Thompson & Morgan is proud to have achieved many different awards either for their performance as a mailorder and internet gardening company or for new plants that they have bred.

Buddleja Buzz™

Buddleja Buzz™ Winner!

At the Grower of the Year awards in February 2010, T&M were extremely proud to be awarded with 'Best New Plant Variety' for Buddleja Buzz. It took several years or painstaking work by Thompson & Morgan's plant breeders to achieve this dwarf version of the garden favourite. Buddleja Buzz™ will not exceed 1metre or 3 feet in height, but retains all the other popular features that we know and love; such as its large sprays of delicately fragranced flowers - now available in magenta and white as well as the traditional lavender. Its dwarf nature makes it perfect for smaller gardens where like its larger cousin it will attract butterflies and other wildlife.
