One of the main reasons for our buying team to attend Glee 2015 has been to gain an insight into the future, here Nathan James Dodd outlines what is currently trending in the gardening industry.
GardenSite stock Kelkay landscaping materials that can transform a garden at a very economical price. Nathan James Dodd, at day two of Glee 2015, has been looking at their new RHS Gardeners Collection of horticultural grits and sands.
Endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society, this collection contains Silver Sand, Grit Sand, Sharp Sand, Potting Grit and Washed Gravel.
They will be available in both large and handy packs and the versatile range offers plenty of options for the gardener. Ideal for drainage, aeration, aquatic planting, the collection can also be used to create a rockery, for alpine planting or, mixed with compost, for sowing seed.
The collection was runner up in the Best Landscape and Construction Product at Glee, and there are helpful tips from the RHS on the back of each bag that will help you get the best from the product
As Antony Harker, Kelkay's MD says, ' The RHS only supports the best products and this range embodies the qualities that our customers love – versatility, durability and longevity'.
With a brand portfolio that features Borderstone planters and ornaments, and Henri Fountains and Water Features, Kelkay products are essential for many contemporary and traditional projects and the new Gardeners Collection wil only reinforce this view.
