A breakfast briefing with Diarmuid Gavin was one of the high points of Glee 2016 for Nathan James Dodd, when the discussion focussed on how to attract young people into the gardening industry.
YouTube is a fantastic social media platform, enabling us to see videos on all sorts of things and appeal to those who prefer video as opposed to photos or the written word.
GardenSite's YouTube channel has been around for quite a while and we use it for a number of things, first and most important is product videos so that customers are able to see how a product works and get more information on them.
If a manufacturer has a video of a product available on our website you will normally find it on our YouTube channel with a link back to the product too.
We also use YouTube to communicate what we do at GardenSite in our garden centre, florist, coffee shop and aquatics superstore such as fund raising events, our Christmas grotto and recently BBC Gardeners' World Live.

When purchasing a Christmas tree, you may or may not be aware that you're continuing a centuries old tradition that was enthusiastically adopted by the Victorians. An artificial tree as Andy Taylor explains is just a modern take on this age old practice.
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.
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.
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.
