Garland urges retailers to secure stocks as demand for garden products soar (November 2018)

The launch of over 40 new products at Glee 2018 coupled with developments elsewhere in the industry has contributed to a significant surge in sales for garden care products manufacturer, Garland Products/Worth Gardening.  The company’s sales have risen by 90 percent in the past month and by 50 per cent on the overall year.  The company is keen to alert new customers to potential availability problems unless they notify Garland (or indeed other suppliers) of their future requirements.
The current situation is explained by Mark Dedman, Sales Director for Garland/Worth Gardening:”We have worked closely with garden and hardware retailers for many years and know only too well the difficulties that retailers have in estimating their future stocking requirements.  However, it is in their interests to communicate their future ordering expectations to their suppliers unless they wish to risk being left high and dry in the spring of 2019.  If retailers talk to their suppliers now it will give those suppliers the opportunity to invest in the necessary extra stock for the coming season.  Retailers that sit tight and hope that stock will be available at short notice next year may be disappointed and this is something that we are trying to avoid. Garland has always invested heavily in order to provide its customers with products they require and at short notice.  We are determined to continue with that policy but input from the retail sector is vitally important to help us in our aims.
 “In spite of heavily increasing our stock and warehouse capacity for 2018, we were frustrated in having to turn away some new customers in March, and whilst we have invested further still in stock, the same situation could arise early next year if new customers leave it too late.  We would urge retailers that have not yet placed orders to contact us now to avoid disappointment.”
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 and hobby gardeners have been designed through the company’s own experience as keen gardeners.

Record Glee for Garland/Worth Gardening (September 2018)

This year has seen Garland/Worth Gardening gain massive support from the garden trade. This years Glee trade fair was the busiest ever in the companies history, with major interest being shown in the companies products for the 2019 season. Garland has already seen 40% growth over this season and 2019 looks set to continue in a similar way. This year has been a tough one for the industry, with the late cold snap from the Beast from the East holding back the early sales, the industry was left feeling flat and sales depressed. March then saw the biggest shake up in the trade, when Gardman, a massive supply force to the garden retailers, went up in flames, right at the time when they were hoping for a boost in sales to come at any moment. Thankfully with Garland/Worth Gardening being a UK manufacturer making over 65% of their products in their own factory in the West Midlands, they were well placed to help out all of its existing customers wherever possible. This Glee has seen those customers renew their commitment to Garland for the foreseeable future and it has also brought a big wave of new business as the tough supply conditions have sent many more customers looking to secure a stable supply chain for the future.

Garland / Worth Gardening will be launching over 40 new products on its Stand Hall 8 D30-E31 at Glee in 2018.  New product development has been the key to the company’s success over the past three years, with many new product ideas being driven by feedback and input from customers.  Since the beginning of the year the company’s sales have grown by over 40 per cent and the Glee launches will help to consolidate future growth for the company and its customers.

New products to be launched at Glee 2018 show include:
• A brand new range of rattan furniture covers in the same material as the increasingly popular Super Tough covers range.  The range has been designed with strength and durability as well as to keep up with the current trends in outdoor furniture sales, but at a very pocket -friendly price for the consumer and with a market leading 5 year guarantee.
• Further additions have been made to the Garden Basics range with the launch of wooden and slate plant labels, as well as a new fast flow water butt tap, plastic wall plugs, safety glasses and a new widger and dibber set.  All items that have been requested by customers over the past 12 to 18 months.
• A new 60cm x 120cm rectangular tray has been added to further strengthen Garland/Worth Gardening’s position in the market as the go to company for garden trays, with 38 different trays now available on the extensive range.
• A new seed tray sieve has been added to complement the company’s popular fine mesh and 2 in 1 sieves.  .
• A new boot station has been added to the boot tidy range.  It is the perfect boot cleaning and storing unit, and  includes two stiff boot brushes, a boot scraper bar, a unique boot pick to remove stones and stubborn dirt from the bottom of the boots/shoes as well as a boot pull and storage rack, all wrapped up in a perfectly neat compact unit.
• An addition to the twines and wires range is a new green version of the ever popular bean and pea net.  The 6ft square jute nets are perfect for growing runner beans and peas, and unlike plastic nets the biodegradable jute netting is ecologically beneficial as it can be simply composted at the end of the season.

The new bags are designed for the ever popular corner sofas and corner dining sets & can fit all of the cushions into one handy storage bag. The cushion bags are 180cm L x 65cm W x 65cm H
Commenting on the launch, Garland/Worth Gardening’s sales director Mark Dedman said; “The launch of these new products is once again the beginning of a very exciting time for the company.  Although the UK garden market has had a tough season, with the weather in the early part holding back sales, the growth we have achieved is no mean feat while at the same time we have maintained over 95 per cent product availability for our customers. “An important part of our ongoing investment has been in the responsible use of plastic materials.  All of the plastic products in our ranges have always utilised 100 per cent recycled or recyclable plastics, including the product’s packaging.  This ensures that our products are part of the solution to plastic waste, not part of the problem. In addition, our plastic products will be displaying a new label designed to reassure the consumer about the eco benefits of the plastics used in our products. We still continue to invest heavily in the future and have further warehouse expansion plans over the coming year to ensure that we continue to hold the stock required to provide a first class service to the trade.  We have also invested in new packing machinery this year so we know we will be well placed as a company to cope with all eventualities in the coming season.”

70+ New Products launched at Glee by Garland/Worth Gardening                       (September 2017)

Once again we have been busy over the last 12 months investing in new products, machinery and infrastructure, leading to another year of big product launches, with 70 new products added for the 2018 season. We have had a great year with the early spring weather helping the season get off to a flying start. We put on sizeable growth every quarter across the year and head in to 2018 with high hopes. New gains over this season have given us an extra lift and so far we have secured lots of new interest and business for next year. This year saw us strengthen our sales team with Phil Burgoyne joining us as our new key accounts manager, Phil is now doing his first Glee show as a supplier after attending the show for years as a garden centre buyer. Commenting on the show, Phil Burgoyne said that the whole year has been a real eye opener, I thought the retailer’s side had many challenges and complications. I however now have a deep appreciation for all the suppliers out there that face so many more challenges behind the scenes. As a buyer I had no idea of the complexity of getting a product from concept, through to design and on to finished product. I have only scratched the surface this year but I cannot wait to get even more evolved over the coming season. It gives you a real sense of achievement seeing things you have worked on, suddenly come together and be there on the stand for everyone to see. Sales Director Mark Dedman said that Phil has already proved to be a valuable asset to the team. His first years growth has topped 34%, with existing customers increasing under Phil's control, as well as many new accounts being opened. I am sure that next year will see Phil making many more gains for us and putting on sizable growth once again.

Garland once again win Garden News Best Buys (September 2015)

Garland has once again won the Garden News Best Buy award, this time for our Heavy Duty Lawn Spike Aerator and also for our Super Tough Lawn Spike Shoes. The Spike Aerator simply pushes along and the offset spikes will cut slots into the lawn surface for maximum aeration. It's made from plastic coated heavy duty steel and is perfect for breaking up compact soil just below the turf surface. The Lawn Spike Shoes are the simple way to aerate your lawns, simply strap them on to your feet wearing either your wellington boots or shoes and walk slowly up and down your lawn, making sure the spikes go right into the lawn for maximum aeration, these are made from super tough nylon and are comfortable to use as the unique sandal strap design stops the straps from digging in and help the shoes stay firmly on your feet. Click here to find out more about our range of lawn care products.

Glee for Garland at this years show (September 2015)

This year was our biggest ever success at the Glee show. Our 80+ new products have gained us a significant interest and commitment for the 2016 season, our new ranges, new lines and new promotional material has helped to strengthen our range in several areas, which seem to be hitting the market at just the right time. As other suppliers have struggled with supply and stock availability, we have been expanding and putting more stock on the shelf, this has seen us acheive our highest ever delivery record of 98.9% and there is more to come. We grew by 50% last year and we are on track to hit a 20% growth this year, plus with more promotion options launched at the show, we truly have a promotion package that will suit all retailers small and large.

Over 80 New Products to be launched by Garland/Worth Gardening at Glee 2015 (September 2015)

Following its policy of continuous product innovation, Garland / Worth Gardening is launching over 80 new products at Glee 2015. The new 2016 season’s items will generate considerable sales momentum for its many UK and overseas customers. Commenting on the launch, operations director Tony Dedman said; "We find that Glee is an excellent launch pad for new products. Last year we introduced 50 new products at the show and this made a major contribution towards the 49 per cent growth in turnover we recorded in 2014, and that growth is continuing." New products to be launched at the Birmingham show include a new compact tidy tray and a new colander trug. The company’s propagation range will be boosted with the introduction of a one-top electric propagator and a micro grow light garden. New planting aids comprise two new bulb planters that have an innovative soil ejection plunger. A green flexi tie is to join the existing brown ties. There will be a new garden basics range of sundries with 45 new lines such as plant labels, pens, tree ties, greenhouse fittings and coils of garden wire. Products for the patio comprise a new range of brooms that include a decking broom, a wire block paving broom plus a large patio pan and brush and patio knives. Added to the company’s extensive thermometer range will be a new max/min thermometer, pH meter and moisture meter along with three soil test kits. Finally, a new cover will be added to the bronze entry level of garden furniture covers and to the silver middle range. In order to add visual in-store impact to Garland/Worth Gardening ranges, six new counter displays are being introduced for items such as the bulk rose ties and tree ties. There will also be nineteen new promotion bins, two pallet deals and one new display stand, all designed to support sales of the new products. Garland/Worth Gardening’s customers are now benefitting from a new distribution warehouse, opened in February 2015. Since its commissioning, the company has achieved record throughput, and the increased capacity of over 70 per cent more pallet spaces has meant greater stock holding and despatch of most orders on the same day of receipt or no later than the next day.

Following on from the Gafa trade show in Germany, we quickly moved to the NEC in Birmingham where we showcased our entire product range to the trade. We had all of our 92 new products on display as well as our existing 450 product lines.

Garland in Germany (September 2013)

We have just returned from the GAFA trade show in Cologne where we were able to show our new 2014 products for the first time. It was great to see so many of our export customers and it seems as though we will be adding a good number of new export accounts to our books. A highlight of the show saw us 'seal the deal' to supply a comprehensive range of covers to a major European retailer while we received an overwhelmingly positive response to the new products - always a relief given the work that has gone into their development! Our most exotic enquiry came in from Tahiti which has provoked a tremendous internal struggle as we try to decide who gets to make the customer visit!
