David & Priscilla Kerley specialise in breeding patio plants grown from cuttings.

We concentrate on species which contribute to seasonal displays in balcony and patio containers - tubs, hanging baskets, windowboxes and other containers.

The most famous product we have commercialized is Petunia Priscilla, the first of the TUMBELINA® double basket petunias so well appreciated by our customers in many countries.
