Ivor Mace's summary of New Releases for 2012 

All growers owe the breeders a great debt of gratitude because new varieties are the life blood of all specialist plants.  Breeding new varieties is becoming increasingly expensive for nurseries and breeding new varieties has been in the hands of amateur breeders who have shown amazing dedication to produce these new varieties, or to be correct Cultivars, because they are created by hand pollination.

Halls of Heddon 
have 5 new sprays from Rod Fox (former owner of Southway Nurseries) and 1 new disbud from Harry Lawson.

Rodís new ones are: -
