With a hall sparkling with chandeliers and brimming with quality plants, the Klondyke Group's annual Plant Show took place at the magnificent Gisborough Hall in Teeside.
Over 20 suppliers exhibited at the show, including Wyevale Nurseries and New Leaf Plants, who were appearing for the first time.
The show, which was attended by the Group’s 22 Plant Managers and Horticultural Buying Team, gave the perfect opportunity to plan and select stock for the 2016 season by bringing them together with many of the best from the UK plant supply chain.
David Arnold, Independent Consultant to the Garden Industry, was also in attendance and led a workshop session on new trends in plant areas and shared findings of recent research into what people are looking for from their gardens.
Klondyke’s Senior Horticultural Buyer Andy Smith organised the show and commented: “Our 2016 event has showcased our ranges to our Plant Managers and set the scene for the season. I would like to thank all of our suppliers who attended and wish them all a great 2016 season."
During the show, The Bransford Webb Plant Company were presented with the Klondyke Group’s award for Supplier of the Year 2015.
David Chilvers, Account Manager commented: “To win the Klondyke Plant Supplier of the Year award really means a lot to us all at Bransford Webbs, as it is one of the few awards that is voted for by the customers. We have been working with Klondyke for many years now and it is great to supply a forward looking company that really has horticulture and plants at the core of its business."
Gisborough Hall is located near to the group’s Stokesley Garden Centre which has recently undergone a large refurbishment project, with new plant area and restaurant. The Stokesley centre is the first of many plant areas to be upgraded, this upgrade is based around themes and making the offer more customer friendly.
