Design Toscano and GardenSite at Glee Gardening Show

Taking their initial inspiration from architecture that is typically European - the gargoyles and water spouts of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris - this American company has built up what they would call an awesome product range.

Awesome Product Range

David Coton and Nathan Dodd from Hall's Garden Centres in England and home of GardenSite.co.uk would thoroughly agree with that description.

According to Michael J. Stopka, President and Owner of Design Toscano

"We make a mixture of elegant, traditional and fun resin statues. Myth and whimsey alongside charming life like animals and scary dinosaurs. Angels and fairies stand side by side with the classical and oriental ornaments."

Design Toscano In The UK

However, there is something different at this year's Glee Garden Trade Show. Toscano, for the first time, are represented by Interpet, a major player in the distribution of many products related to pets, aquatics, ornaments and much more.

For anyone outside the industry this might not be page one news but it is a very clear sign that they are taking the UK market very seriously.

Toscano's reputation is based on quality and attention to detail and these are standards that Interpet also values highly. And with their new distributor's experience in the UK market, we should see sales taking off.

Further Information
