GardenSite Wins Glee 2015 Garden And Leisure Award

For thirty years Glee has been the UK's major annual Garden and Leisure Industry show and is held over three days at the NEC in Birmingham.

As a business we have been represented at the show each year, with our buying team making contact with existing suppliers as well as seeking out new products to sell online.

Nomination

Since 1999 we have been promoting our website which we branded GardenSite early in 2000. A lot has changed online since those pre-Google times when you had to submit your website manually to the existing search engines that were just growing in importance. 

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 didn't think we were going to win for one minute as multi-nationals such as Amazon, QVC and Littlewoods Direct had also been nominated. David and Goliath comes to mind, as GardenSite is still family owned and supported. 

Celebration

To have won is exceptional and I put it down to the buying team's innovative work in bringing our customers such an impressive range of products at great prices.

Gardensite.co.uk was a pioneering site when first created and we have never lost sight of our commitment to sourcing excellent products and providing customer service that is second to none.

Winning this award will only make the buying team more determined to source the excellent and comprehensive range of products that have become synonymous with gardensite.co.uk

I had never heard of Evika Greenhouses but when I walked into our annual Garden & Leisure Exhibition 2019 (GLEE) it was the only product I really saw. A brand new greenhouse brand is always going to get my attention but the sense that this was not only new, but different, kept my focus.
