GTN Bestsellers looks forward to new product bonanza


After an August that has traded above last year, + 2.1%, and above the average for the past 9 years, + 2.3%, all eyes now focus on Glee to see what new products will become bestsellers for the next few years.

The Garden Trade News team are again organising the Glee New Product Showcase, which is in Hall 8 this year, and as this issue goes to press there are a over 350 entries.

Many of the entries look to be meeting the expectations of many visitors in respect of green issues but there won’t be any entries from Neudorff this year as they have pulled out of Glee at short notice. 

We hope you’ll join us for some Floral Fun on Thursday as we turn Glee Floral in aid of Greenfingers.  We’re hoping as many exhibitors and visitors as possible come to Glee wearing something floral and that during the day we raise plenty of money for Greenfingers in their 20th year. See you at the show.
