Next week sees the start of the GLEE trade show at the NEC in Birmingham. GLEE is one of the main trade exhibitions for the garden and leisure industry in the UK.
As in previous years we will be exhibiting in our own right as the last forge of it’s kind still manufacturing our British made garden tools in this country. Over the last five years we have seen the Bulldog brand climbing back towards it’s rightful position in the gardening tool market.
This years exhibition will see Bulldog launching the “Bulldog Green Collection”. A selection of slightly unusual tools for which we have had a high level of interest and sales at the various RHS flower shows that we attend. We are hoping to pass on to the garden centre owners our experience of what sells and what is popular in the Bulldog range.
The Bulldog Green Collection is made up of four small ranges of tools, all of which are “special and different” in their own way. We are hoping to show the garden centres that there is a demand for more unusual tools rather than the run of the mill spade and fork set.
One example of a tool in our new collection is the Tree planting spade. This isn’t a tool you see very often at garden centres, but we’ve found it’s a very popular item at the Chelsea flower show.
GLEE is not open to the public, but if you are visiting the show, please come and visit our stand situated in Hall 5. We look forward to showing you around!
