Attending Glee, the leading garden and leisure industry show, was a great opportunity for Nathan Dodd to spot trends and anticipate products that will come onto the market in the near future.
Reflecting the worldwide appeal of exhibiting at Glee, Design Toscano have come all the way from the USA to show their high quality resin statuary.
Taking their initial inspiration from architecture that is typically European - the gargoyles and water spouts of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris - this American company has built up what they would call an awesome product range.
David Coton and Nathan Dodd from Hall's Garden Centres in England and home of GardenSite.co.uk would thoroughly agree with that description.
According to Michael J. Stopka, President and Owner of Design Toscano
"We make a mixture of elegant, traditional and fun resin statues. Myth and whimsey alongside charming life like animals and scary dinosaurs. Angels and fairies stand side by side with the classical and oriental ornaments."
However, there is something different at this year's Glee Garden Trade Show. Toscano, for the first time, are represented by Interpet, a major player in the distribution of many products related to pets, aquatics, ornaments and much more.
For anyone outside the industry this might not be page one news but it is a very clear sign that they are taking the UK market very seriously.
Toscano's reputation is based on quality and attention to detail and these are standards that Interpet also values highly. And with their new distributor's experience in the UK market, we should see sales taking off.
You can learn more about the products that are available from Design Toscano by going to their website, if you are interested in any of the products available through our website have a look at the Design Toscano products page on GardenSite.
