As GardenSIte's plant specialist I always keenly anticipate the HTA National Plant Show. This is my chance to visit nurseries, find out what's trending in the horticultural world and source new stock, all from under one roof.
Now in its fifth year the HTA National Plant Show at Stoneleigh, Coventry 24 - 25th June 2014 is the place to be if you are a plant supplier or retailer.
It's certainly where GardenSite's plant and flower expert David Hall and myself will be.
The event, now recognised as the UK's leading plant show, is organised by the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA).
On display are a huge range of products from seed to plug and specimen plants, even heavy trees and everything in between. Thousands of plant varieties from over 100 growers under one roof.
Awards are made for best new plants and displays, and visitors will be inspired by seminars given by personalities such as Sarah Raven and James Wong.
The two day show provides an ideal opportunity for retailers to promote their latest products and plan for the future.
Every major player in the horticultural industry will be present and it is the perfect opportunity for us as retailers to look at exciting developments that we can offer the public in the future.
We are always looking to develop and improve everything we sell online and through our garden centres, striving to be the first to introduce new garden products onto the market.
