Although the weather is feeling decidedly chilly for the time of the year, during May the threat of frost will pass and, with spring well under way, David Coton is in no doubt that this is going to be a busy month in the garden.
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.
