Smart Garden wins 'Greatest Supplier' award again

Smart Garden was nominated as Garden Products Supplier of the Year  in GTN’s Greatest Awards presented at the HTA Garden Futures Conference and dinner at Heythrop Park, Oxfordshire – the second year in a row that the company has won the title....


The award was presented to Smart Garden’s MD Jonathan Stobart and sales director Paul Knott by BBC rural affairs correspondent and Countryfile presenter Tom Heap, and awards host and founder Trevor Pfeiffer of Garden Trade News and GTNXtra.


Sponsored by Elho and Glee, the award, voted for by garden centres, is given to suppliers that go above and beyond in the service of their retail customers.


Trevor Pfeiffer, said Smart Garden came out top in the supplier votes for its all-round ability to supply to garden trade customers. “But for the majority of the retailers I spoke to, the main factor was sales consistency – the product range just keeps selling all year round,” he said.


Jonathan Stobart said: “I am incredibly proud of my team and would like to thank our garden centre customers especially for so generously rewarding our efforts once again.”
