Evesham, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 06, 2012 -- The Glee event in Birmingham is a huge annual event, the largest gardening and home leisure suppliers all attend, brands such as Hozelock, Fiskars and Draper were all there to show what is new in the world of gardening tools.
Lee Taylor, General Manager for Gardentoolbox quoted:
"Glee is an excellent exhibition, it allows us to seek out new products and manufacturers, and gives us a real insight into what is new and innovative in the ever expanding Garden Equipment market. From revolutionary lawnmowers to the run of the mill hedge trimmers and chainsaws, all suppliers are happy to talk you through the latest ranges and pricing"
Spread wide across 3 halls of the NEC in Birmingham, there are seminars and various displays around the exhibition, and it is a great day out for any gardening tools buyer.
Scott Morris, E-Commerce Manager of Gardentoolbox added:
"We have recently added a huge range of Sankey and Fiskars products to the website, and visiting Glee has certainly backed up our decision to do that as both stands were swamped with visitors. Gardentoolbox has seen a huge increase of sales in the garden planting market, plant pots, propagators and self-watering troughs have all been a big hit. Most of our planting products are from Sankey, but we visited Glee in the attempt to seek out some other large manufacturers of planting products and we were not disappointed"
It seems with internet shopping simply not going away the home gardener has now jumped on the e-commerce bandwagon as a savvy garden tools buyer, able to find the cheapest price of just about anything, just about anywhere in the country. Online garden tools suppliers like Gardentoolbox take all the hassle out of visiting a DIY store on a busy Saturday afternoon, no queues and a wider range of products to view in the comfort of your armchair allowing more time to actually tend to the garden.
