Three times a charm for GARDENA at the GIMA awards
GTN Xtra Promotion


GARDENA celebrates triple success at the 2019 GIMA awards after being recognised for a total of three innovations.


The incredibly tough GARDENA Texile hose Liano was a finalist in the Growing, Planting Equipment and Sundries category and SMART Sileno robotic mower was awarded finalist in the Garden Tools, Machinery and Implements category.


But it was the GARDENA Metal Hose Trolley that stole the show, winning the Growing, Planting Equipment and Sundries award.

The metal hose trolley has a stable one-piece metal drum, with a high-quality aluminium handle for maximum durability. The patented foldable metal crank handle with soft component, together with the hose guide, make for comfortable and ergonomic winding, whilst the kick and stand function provides maximum stability during use.



What the judges said: “Excellent quality, love the adjustable stand to give extra stability - a great feature!”


Kees van Opdorp, Regional Director for northern Europe said: “Being recognised at the GIMA awards is a great achievement and success. I’m proud of our team in the UK building up our business again in one of Europe’s biggest and most important garden markets,”


The 39th annual GIMA awards were announced and presented on July 4th at the gala dinner at Celtic Manor Resort in South Wales.
