The Hampton Court Palace Flower Show takes place next month and Nathan James Dodd looks forward to what you'll discover at the largest annual show of its kind.
Gardensite.co.uk is very proud to have received the award for 'Best Online Garden Retail Buying Team' on the second day of Glee 2015. Nathan James Dodd, the site's Marketing Director, was at the show when the winner was announced.
For thirty years Glee has been the UK's major annual Garden and Leisure Industry show and is held over three days at the NEC in Birmingham.
As a business we have been represented at the show each year, with our buying team making contact with existing suppliers as well as seeking out new products to sell online on gardensite.co.uk since we launched the site in 1999.
It was therefore very pleasing to receive a nomination for this award, particularly as we are still a family business and up against some major online retailers.
To have won is exceptional and Senior Partner Robert Hall puts it down to the buying team's 'innovative work in bringing our customers such an impressive range of products at great prices.'
He went on to say that 'Gardensite.co.uk was a pioneering site when first created and we have never lost sight of our commitment to sourcing excellent products and providing customer service that is second to none'.
'Winning this award will only make the buying team more determined to source the excellent and comprehensive range of products that have become synonymous with gardensite.co.uk'.

This guide by Andy Taylor is all about battery powered lights, a very safe way to decorate your home with festive colour. With low running costs and bright LEDs, batteries may be the smart choice this Christmas.
There's a huge selection of Premier Christmas Lights, and it's no wonder why they are market leaders judging by the variety and innovation that's on offer. This is Andy Taylor's guide to their range of top quality lights and decorations.
In the past Christmas decorations were limited to streamers and fairy lights, but not any more as Robert Hall discovered when reviewing the huge range of novelty Christmas items that are brought to life by LEDs.
Christmas wreaths, swags and garlands might be thought a little old fashioned, but Robert Hall thinks that modern versions of these traditional decorations are a fabulous way to combine tradition with colourful contemporary themes.
