Following a highly successful start to the season, Garland Products will be launching over 40 new products at Glee 2023 (Hall:8-20 Stand: 20H30-J31). These include 24 new propagation products, which result from a major investment to further cement Garland’s position as the market leader in this sector. The propagation products include injection moulded Square Tom Pots in two colours, black and green coloured Super-Sized Seed Tray and Garden Tray and a Deep Root Garden/Seed Tray. Also added to the range is a new Vented Large Budget Propagator and a Vented Budget Propagator Lid. Two sizes of Jute Seed Mats to fit the company’s Standard Seed Trays as well as Micro Greens Trays are also being introduced.
Among the exciting launches are two brand new split cell growing systems. There is a new 28-Cell Deep Root Seed Success Kit, which is an injection moulded split cell propagator system launched earlier this year and which has already had an extremely high order rate despite being off catalogue. The kit has 28 injection moulded cells along with an injection moulded base tray and a vented propagator lid. The kit carries a 10-year guarantee. A new 24 Cell Fast Root kit and a 24 Cell Self Watering Fast Root option are also making their debut at Glee. These comprise shallower split cell moulding and base tray, and are available alongside individual split cells. The split cells require no additional support and will stand on their own during use.
Other new additions to Garland’s top-selling Micro Greens range include two Double Depth Micro Greens Trays. They are a growing version with holes and a solid reservoir version. There are also two new heated Vitopods propagators that are fully height adjustable with the addition of height extender kits. The propagators provide high-end thermostatically controlled growing environments for the keen gardener and are available in either a small 60cm square version, or a large 58cm x 111cm size. These innovative growing systems are a significant addition to Garland’s range, and position the company at the very forefront of the heated propagator sector.
Also new at Glee are Jute Growing Bags that include a Potato Bag, a Bean and Pea Bag as well as a Grow Bag option. Six new Jute Hanging Basket Liners are available in 12”,14”, 16” as well as a 16” Half Basket Liner and two cut-to-size options for wall baskets and mangers that are available in 60cm x 120cm and 60cm x 180cm sizes.
A very practical deep new Home & Garden Storage Tray, available in Green, Sage or Anthracite colours, will prove perfect for a wide range of uses around the home and garden.
Completing Garland’s exciting launches for 2023 is a new Cane Grip Grow Pot Set and a new Duogrow self-watering planter. The Cane Grip Grow Pots comprise two 11ltr Square Growing Pots coupled with cane supports which are built in to a moisture retaining Mulch Cap lid together with a base tray reservoir for retaining water. These competitively-priced pots are perfect for growing tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, chillies and other similar plants. The new Duogrow is a 2-pot self-watering planter that waters plants at the optimal times, keeping the soil at the perfect moisture levels. The unit requires no electricity or timers as it works on a wick-based system. This works through Feeder Mats inside the pots pulling water up from the 15 litre Smart Reservoir into the soil around the plants roots – precisely where it is needed by the plants. The Duogrow is infinitely extendable with the addition of a 2-pot extension kit which connects via the Smart Reservoirs to create a multiple unit system. The Smart Reservoir system can be filled up from a single unit and maintains the perfect watering conditions across a single unit or the whole system for up to 14 days at a time.
Commenting on Garlands 29th appearance at Glee, sales director Mark Dedman said:” We have had a surprisingly good start to the new year despite the previous year’s pessimism in the trade. Last year we achieved sales growth of over 25 per cent on 2019, which was the last comparable non-Covid year. Thankfully, we have managed to hold our prices steady over the past twelve months despite facing huge pressures from external sources.
We will be at Glee to showcase this year’s new products which see us return to more in-house manufactured new products. Two-thirds of our new offerings will be made in our own factory at Kingswinford. Furthermore, the investment we made in November 2022 in the latest warehouse management software has allowed us to plan resources, resulting in just under 99 percent of products delivered in full.”
The Garland Products Group specialises in the manufacture of plastic injection moulded products and is one of the fastest growing suppliers to the garden industry. The products available to both keen or hobby gardeners have been designed through the company’s own experience as keen gardeners.
