Nathan James Dodd attended the Garden Press event on Thursday at the Barbican in London, a great chance for suppliers and manufacturers to meet the gardening press to showcase their existing and new products.
Robert Hall was delighted to get an email declaring that GardenSite.co.uk had been nominated in the Best Online Garden Retail Buying Team category at this year's GLEE 2015 show.
GLEE at the NEC in Birmingham has been the major trade show for the Garden and Leisure Industry since its inception well over 30 years ago. Our garden centre company has been represented at this show in every single year since then. We visit current suppliers but always we are looking for new and innovative products, from those we know and those we don’t.
Since 1999 we have been promoting our website which we branded GardenSite early in 2000. It was therefore very satisfying to get an e-mail from Ali Clarke at i2i Events Group letting us know that we had been nominated for an award in the Best Online Garden Retail Buying Team category.
I don’t think we are going to win for one minute as Amazon, QVC and Littlewoods Direct, to name just three others, have also been nominated. David and Goliath comes to mind, as GardenSite is still family owned and supported. Back in 1999 may not be too long ago, but a lot has changed online since then. This was pre-Google when you had to submit your website manually to Alta Vista and the other Search Engines that were just growing in importance. Tesco did not have an e-commerce presence then and the impact and change that was coming on our shopping habits would certainly be misread by far too many.
Heating will be a deciding factor on the variety of plants you are able to grow in a greenhouse and the number of plants that can be kept over winter. Here, Robert Hall goes through the pros and cons of the different types of heating that are available.
Grange are introducing several new fence panels and gates in 2017 and Andy Taylor has been looking at these fresh additions to their already impressive collection of timber products.
With the security of online purchases and protection of personal information a priority for our customers, David Coton is pleased to announce that gardensite.co.uk is now fully secure across the whole site.
Palmako are one of Europe's leading manufacturers of garden buildings using high quality Nordic timber, and David Coton is pleased that GardenSite can now offer their new range of versatile and beautifully constructed garden buildings.
