With garden centres set to open their doors again in England on 13th May, GardenSite will once again have its show site open and available in the West Midlands again.
As with all non-essential shops, our show site has been rightly closed under the current government lockdown denying those whom wish to view some of our display buildings and products the opportunity to come and see and feel the quality that our manufacturers and suppliers offer.
But with restrictions slowly being lifted, and social distancing being practised we are pleased to be able to showcase what’s on display here.
We have a large range of greenhouses on display from Swallow, Halls, Eden, Elite and Vitavia. They all feature toughened glass as they are on public display. Public safety is always a major concern.
Biohort, Lifetime and Keter are some of the top brands featured in our shed display if you are looking for more storage in your garden. Seeing them on the internet and being able to buy online has been a positive way to trade but some want to know exactly what they will get for their money which is why we display some of our best selling lines. Unfortunately, we can’t display them all. We always advise you phone before travelling.
As well as being able to visit our display show site we also have experts on hand who will be very happy to discuss your individual requirements for the wide range of products that we sell.
Many websites are just that, websites, but GardenSite is one of the few that offers a fully staffed display site of nearly 2 acres in central England.
Haddonstone, Home & Garden and Vivid Arts are just 3 of our suppliers that showcase garden statues, ornaments, vases and more amongst a wide range of garden products to make your little piece of heaven both individual and beautiful.
Or maybe you fancy relaxing in the sun? We have a range of garden furniture by Barlow Tyrie and Alexander Rose as well as some from the Charles Taylor wooden garden furniture selection that is bound to grab your attention.
Our Aquatics Superstore sells OASE, Hozelock, Tetra, Pondtec, and all leading manufacturers in the Aquatics trade. Whether you are looking for pumps, filters or spares for your fish pond products or anything for your indoor aquarium you will be able to discuss your requirements with our experienced staff. Our Aquatics Superstore, which has always been an integral element since we started selling Otter pond pumps back in the early 1960s. The industry has come a long way since then, so come and see for yourself.
Social distancing measures will, of course, be in place and you may have to queue at the gates to get in. Our coffee shop, The Garden Room, is still closed until further notice.
But if you want to stretch your legs then we look forward to meeting with you.
The full address is 211, Chester Road, New Oscott, Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, B73 5BD. Our dedicated phone number for the show site is 0121 354 6858. Drive safely.
Spring flowering bulbs brighten the garden from when snow is on the ground right through to the sunlit early summer. Here is David Hall's guide to achieving a marvellous display of colour to herald in the new year.
It's autumn and David Coton is getting the garden prepared for the onset of colder weather but, at the same time, the arrival of spring bulbs in the garden centre is a reminder that we should also now be planning ahead for next year.
There's no doubt that television provides gardeners with inspiration, sound advice and good ideas, that's why we're all looking forward to new programmes and the return of old favourites during 2020 but during the current government restrictions don't be surprised to see repeats filling gaps in a depleted schedule and other programmes adopting a different format..
It was all change this year for GLEE, the garden retail industry's annual show that is usually held at the NEC in Birmingham. Due to pandemic restrictions, a virtual show took its place with product launches, presentations and awards all happening online.
