Garden Press Event

It's the only event of its kind, and there was certainly a good turn out, with over 250 writers, presenters, newspaper and magazine journalists, and bloggers including our own from ‘The Gardener’.

Established 10 years ago, many see this event as the start of the gardening season. Held in the spacious surroundings of the Barbican, over two floors, 2016 was the biggest so far with over 100 stalls displaying the entire range of gardening products 

The large mix of exhibitors included well known names whose products we sell on GardenSite, such as Haddonstone cast stone statuary, Bayer pest control, and Hozelock, with their latest automated watering systems.

Others included Grange, manufacturers of timber garden structures, and La Hacienda, makers of contemporary outdoor ovens and firepits. Overall a record number of companies with Holland, France and Germany represented as well as British companies.

It was a very different atmosphere to what we are used to when attending Glee, the garden wholesale buying event. This was a much more intimate occasion and the opportunity to become thoroughly acquainted with the suppliers and what they had on offer.

The stall holders were there to inform, and the knowledge that we gained, together with the trends that we noticed, will be reflected in future blogs in The Gardener.
