Posted: November 30, 2018The 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

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.

Many of our new products seem to have caught the eyes of countries like Sweden and Norway, with big orders and massive increases being seen in these regions.
