This year continues be a busy one for everyone here at Bulldog Tools, so once again we thought we would keep you up to date with everything that’s going on.
RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show
This year’s Hampton Court Palace was a great success for the Bulldog Tools Team. Not only did we sell more tools and gloves than ever before, but a garden that we helped to sponsor, Sheena Seeks’s ‘Quarry of Silences’ conceptual garden won a gold medal and the award for best conceptual garden at the show. Her garden featured 150 of our Bulldog spades and forks on a hill constructed with sand, each spade representing an individual striving or failing to reach their life goals. The picture shows Bulldog Tools Managing Director Stuart Elsom with team members Katie and Penny on our stand at Hampton Court.
Mechanix for Men
After the success of our launch of Mechanix Ladies Gardening Gloves at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show, we have added a couple of pairs of Men’s Gardening Gloves to the range. The new gloves feature innovative fabrics like 4X Material as well as protection and padding to reduce impact and minimise vibration from lawnmowers, chainsaws, hedge trimmers and other power tools. Like the Mechanix Ladies Gloves, the men’s gloves will be available at RHS and other gardening shows and also from selected retailers, but to find out more you can visit here.
