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.
