GARDEN_MAINBE AMONG the first to grow four new streptocarpus house plants by winning this super competition. We are offering SIX prize packages, each containing the four new varieties – launched this year – plus two beautiful longer-established kinds.
The plants come from Dibleys Nurseries, the leading breeder and grower of streptocarpus and other indoor plants, based at Llanelidan, Ruthin, North Wales, who have won no fewer than 24 gold medals at the world-famous Chelsea Flower Show.
Streptocarpus have become one of the most popular house plants in recent years, flowering for up to 10 months in a wide range of shades and colours.
The four new ‘streps’ are: Bella, producing numerous pink-veined blooms; Dee, with two-tone, velvety, violet-blue flowers; Delia, clear white with a delicate blue tracery; and Full Moon, which has large blooms with a snow-white centre surrounded by a deep purple ring. Also in the prize package are Harlequin Sapphire, producing unusual blooms of white with deep violet lower lobes; and Harlequin Ruby, white with deep red lower lobes.
