A seed and plants firm based in Ipswich is celebrating after one of its creations was shortlisted for a prestigious award.

Thompson & Morgan’s dual cropping plant Egg & Chips, a potato and aubergine graft, is one of five finalists to make it through to the prestigious Fleuroselect Fleurostar awards.

Traditionally a bedding plant event, organisers where so impressed with the unique attributes of Egg & Chips® that it is being pitted against four new floral creations at this year’s event.

New product development manager, Michael Perry said: “Our recent focus on dual cropping vegetable plants has opened up home growing to everyone. Both our Egg & Chips and Tomtato plants allow home grown crops to be produced in the smallest of spaces. As long as you have room for a large patio pot, you have the space to grow your own potatoes and aubergines or potatoes and tomatoes.”
