Gardman Crest ready to deliver you growth in 2020

Happy new year to all our customers from all of the team at Gardman Crest who are ready to deliver growth to your business in 2020.


Having combined the businesses of Gardman and Crest Garden; we are stronger together.  All of our brands ensure that quality, design and functionality are at the core of what we do – keeping today’s gardener in mind.


We have kept all of the great products and brands that Gardman have produced for the past 25 years, as well as retained the two leading brands of Kent and Stowe tools and Flopro watering from Crest Garden. Plantpak has merged with Grow It and is now a fully comprehensive range of growing and propagation. However, we have spent 2019 enhancing our product offering with high quality innovative products into all of our ranges.

Gardman, Grow It and Cole & Bright have all undergone massive re-branding and design exercises ensuring consumers have the most beautiful and easy to shop packaging available in the market. We have also introduced brand new stands for every category with informative and easy to understand point of sale.

New and exciting products and ranges include the new Cole & Bright decorative range, Grow It plant supports that grow with your plants as well as Kent & Stowe tree care and new traditionally styled wooden cutting. Grow It has also introduced innovative growhouses with stability pockets for wind resistance and stronger covers and shelving, as well as a keen product range focussing on reducing single use plastics. The Gardman brand is back to its former splendour and heritage; bringing back to the brand hanging baskets and core gardening accessories and sundries.

A huge new launch for us in 2020 is Kent & Stowe gloves, clogs, wellies and kneelers - offering the high quality, bespoke designs and breadth of range, all with new and innovative merchandising solutions.

We have worked hard over the past year to bring you a truly stunning and comprehensive gardening range and we are very excited to share this with you.

Gardman Crest is pleased to welcome you to our showroom in Peterborough during 2020. It is open to all of our customers throughout the year, showcasing all current and new products with merchandising solutions on display. The showroom is a fantastic place to see, learn and understand the features and benefits of all of our brands and products.
