Penstemons beat the weather

Pershore-based nursery Green Jjam are celebrating their best Malvern result – against all the odds.

Julia Mitchell and Jo Yates got silver-gilt for their display of penstemon, their third outing at the Malvern Autumn Show. However, recent cold weather nearly scuppered their chances as their penstemon, which normally bloom until October, came to an abrupt halt with cool days and even colder nights.

“The weather’s been so cold we had to move things into the greenhouse for the first time ever for this show,” said Julia. “It was a struggle to get them to continue flowering.

“We were mega pleased with the result.”
