Watch Gareth explaining why you should vote for Cornus 'Eddie's White Wonder'

1963 - 1972: Cornus ‘Eddie’s White Wonder’

Plant Champion: Gareth Manning, 47 from Reading

Gareth's lifelong passion for trees and shrubs started in the mid-80s when a nurseryman, (who was actually called Eddie) introduced him to Cornus ‘Eddie’s White Wonder’. It completely changed his mind about Cornus and he remembers it as the first plant he ever had that was truly out of the ordinary.
