GardenSite has once again been nominated for the award of 'Best Online Garden Retail Buying Team' at this year's Glee, the UK's most important Garden & Leisure Industry show.
Winning twice in the last three years has highlighted GardenSite's commitment to sourcing only the best quality products at the right prices and partner David Coton is hoping to regain the award at next month's Glee.
He says 'Gardensite is a family run business and we are once again competing against strong competition from well known brands that this year include Tesco, Waitrose and Amazon. To win will be a fantastic achievement',
Held over three days at the NEC in Birmingham, the exhibition showcases over 500 brands and many exciting new products. That's why GardenSite is represented at the exhibition each year, meeting suppliers and discovering fresh new products.
David added "I was delighted to hear that the hard work of our online buying team at GardenSite has once again been recognized with this nomination. Our focus is always on providing our customers with an impressive range of products that are both high quality and affordable. The Glee trade show is an important event for us to discover these products and an event we look forward to attending and one we would certainly not miss".
Glee is takes place between the 10th and 12th of September at the NEC, and the awards ceremony is held on the main seminar stage in Hall 8 at 15.30 on Tuesday 11th September.

With such changeable weather recently with a heat wave following by rain, David Coton is looking forward to summer finally arriving and a chance to get out into the garden, here are some of the jobs he'll be tackling during July.
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..
