With the recent hot weather encouraging everyone out into the garden and the threat of frost disappearing during May, David Coton is in no doubt that this is going to be a busy month.
It's just been announced that Reef One, the company that manufactures biOrb aquariums, has been taken over by OASE, themselves a leading name in the aquatics sector. Nathan James Dodd looks forward to GardenSite continuing to sell their top quality products.
Over a number of years Reef One has successfully established biOrb as a premium brand of top quality aquariums that contain unique design features. They offer the looks of a traditional fish bowl but feature many modern innovations that have proved hugely popular.
The range also includes biOrb Life and Flow aquariums that are thoroughly contemporary in appearance. Simple, elegant tanks packed with features in a red, black or white acrylic wrap. All their aquarium styles can be seen in our dedicated biOrb Shop.
OASE appreciate that these products will be a perfect fit with their own range that focusses on outdoor ponds, pumps, filters, treatments and accessories for both the domestic and commercial markets.
The company is also well known for its involvement in lake management and water entertainment, creating wonderful effects with the sophisticated use of fountains and lights. You can see all their products in our OASE Shop.
Next month OASE are planning to launch their own indoor aquatics line, so the acquisition of Reef One will create an exciting and very strong offering with an array of premium indoor products alongside their existing outdoor aquatics range.
Everyone at GardenSite is looking forward to these new products. We will be keeping you in touch with future developments and letting you know when we have them in stock.
New products are the lifeblood of many industries and it’s no different in the gardening sector and most of us above a certain age will know the Rubbermaid brand well, particularly if you have ever been in the cleaning industry.
GLEE is the garden retail industry's annual show at the NEC in Birmingham. David Coton took the opportunity to visit this year's event to catch up on the news, visit current/potential suppliers and evaluate new products we would like to offer on GardenSite in the coming year.
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.
Although the growing season is slowly coming to an end, David Coton can suggest quite a few jobs that need to be done over the next few weeks, helping you make the most of what's left of summer and preparing for the arrival of autumn.
