The Proven Winners Process

Proven Winners is a global plant brand. We search the world to find the best new plant varieties, and then we put them through rigorous tests to ensure they meet our high quality standards.

We are linked to a global network of plant breeders. The plant breeder's aim is to develop new or improved varieties of plants. After they have made any new discoveries Proven Winners tests the plants before carefully selecting the ones that meet our high quality standards.

Each Proven Winners variety that makes it to your garden has been carefully selected to ensure it meets our quality criteria.

Plants are trialled and tested in sites all over the world, in Europe, America, South Africa and Japan. This can take from 2-3 years to complete as they are tested to ensure they are:

Trialled and Tested
  • Bright and colourful


  • Covered with flowers


  • All season bloomers


  • Easy to grow and care for


They also need to be disease and pest resistant, and have a tolerance for heat and humidity.

Each Proven Winners variety has been measured against these criteria, so you know you can trust every Proven Winners variety in your garden to be breath-taking, long lasting, and easy to maintain.

Once a variety has been selected it is then produced as a young plant at our production site in Cornwall, we produce millions of young plants here in Cornwall every year. From here they are sent to growers all over the UK who grow and nurture the plants until they are ready to be sold in retail outlets.
