Tumbelina Priscilla – The world’s first double trailing petunia
Here at Unwins we’re celebrating the 20th anniversary of the launch of this unique star of the plant-world.
Bred by Priscilla Kerley under the guidance of husband David Kerley, 23-years Unwins Commercial Director during 70s-90s, this double and trailing petunia had humble origins in his 12x10ft garden greenhouse….
It’s now an unbeatable bestseller enjoying worldwide success!
Its sales went through the roof since its launch, exclusive to Unwins in 1997 starting from 105,000 sales that year and since in excess of tens of millions. It enjoys worldwide success, heavily-demanded in more than 25 countries from Canada to Germany and Japan to Australia.
