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'.
