30k Sun giveaway heralds launch of FloPro classic hose reel

The new Flopro Classic Hose Reel launched at Glee has hit the market with 30,000 units being given away free of charge at garden centres across the country.


Suppliers Crest Garden say the new Flopro Professional range of top-end watering equipment which has addressed a gap in the market has been extremely well received and the YoYo lightweight expandable hose (below left) in bright new packaging continues to grow.


The £2m Flopro Classic Hose Reel giveaway will be launched to the public in conjunction with The Sun newspaper on Easter Saturday 2019 with substantial editorial coverage. The promotion is thought to be the largest ever giveaway in the garden industry, with gardeners collecting vouchers and visiting their nearest participating centre to collect their hose reel at no charge. Almost two thirds of the 30,000 free reels have already been allocated so retailers are encouraged to register as a participant as soon as possible.


The Flopro Professional is aimed at consumers who likes to use the best. The range includes reels and carts, Tricot reinforced ATS hoses, spray  guns, connectors and sprinklers.


The Professional Tripod Sprinkler will attract owners of larger gardens. Covering an area  of 23m diameter, it offers sturdy metal construction with adjustable weighted legs for around £40.


The YoYo, whose demonstration unit at Glee created keen interest, is a heavy-duty expandable garden hose that extends to twice its length and retracts to its original size after use, without twisting, kinking or tangling. It is available in 8m, 15m, 20m and 30m lengths and comes ready to use with one hand flow control Multi-Jet Spray Gun plus all tap connectors. POS support includes an in-store video display unit.
