Bushel and Berry Introduces Three
New Strawberries
Bushel and Berry, the collection of homegrown berries from
Star Roses and Plants, has introduced three new strawberry plants
for 2021. These ornamental, everbearing strawberries are the first
non-blueberry addition to the collection since the Baby Cakes
blackberry plant, which was introduced in 2016.
The new strawberry varieties are:
* 'Rosy Belle' is both beautiful and tasty with rose-pink blooms
and sweet berries that grow abundantly from spring until
frost. It's perfect as a border plant or grown in pots. 'Rosy
Belle' has a cascading habit that will reach 6 to 9 inches high.
* 'Scarlet Belle' has scarlet-red blooms with yellow centers
that produce juicy strawberries all season. Plant in patio
pots, hanging baskets, or garden beds for a rewarding and
scrumptious crop. 'Scarlet Belle' has a cascading habit that
will reach 8 to 12 inches high.
* 'Snowy Belle' is a deliciously sweet treat to grow in the
garden and enjoy at the table. This strawberry variety has
big, white flowers that produce an abundance of flavorful
fruit. 'Snowy Belle' has a cascading habit that will reach 8 to
10 inches high.
" These new strawberries are reliable with great performance
in multiple regions of the country, " said Kristen Pullen, Bushel
and Berry program manager at Star Roses and Plants. " They
also have a quick production time of about 8 to 10 weeks from
potting in greenhouse or tunnel production. "

Seed Your Future Launches 2021
Bloom! Campaign
Seed Your Future has announced the launch of " Plants to
the Rescue! " - its 2021 BLOOM! campaign to excite young
people about the power of plants and their unique ability
to help solve some of the most pressing problems in their
communities. In collaboration with Scholastic,
the global children's publishing, education and
media company, BLOOM! provides free eyecatching,
fact-based, online content
for educators, youth program leaders and
parents.
The latest BLOOM! campaign marks year
four of this initiative of Seed Your Future,
a coalition of more than 200 partners -
including horticulture companies, gardening
organizations, schools, colleges, universities,
public gardens, youth organizations,
nonprofit organizations and individual
advocates - united in their mission to
promote horticulture and careers working
with plants.
" Youth have told us that they want to help

solve some of the most difficult problems in
our world today, " said Susan E. Yoder, executive
director of Seed Your Future. " Students are
learning about global health issues, world
hunger, climate change, flooding, air pollution,
noise pollution, food deserts and more, and
they're eager to do something about it - but
they don't know how or even what would
make a difference. BLOOM! helps them to
identify the root of each challenge and opens
their eyes to how the power of plants and
the people who work with them can make a
positive impact. "
Seed Your Future, along with Scholastic, has
expanded its online educator website -
