Last month saw the annual exhibition for international garden suppliers, Glee in Birmingham.

Burston Garden Centre attend Glee Birmingham

It’s an excellent opportunity to take in all the current trends as well as being able to see what will be up and coming in the current year.  Burston sent along deligates this year to cast their eye over the new ranges of products – some inspirational, some unusual, but all of them exciting. We also spotted someone who could possible be a bronze relative of our very own

Boris the Gorilla

Boris The Gorilla and his cousin!

We also had the opportunity to mingle and chat to our colleagues in the industry as well as taking in presentations from industry thought leaders who gave insights on the shape of the industry to come in 2016. It’s these sort of shows which help us to get inspiration for the seasonal products which you think will liven up your home and garden throughout 2016. It was good to catch up with Love the Plot You’ve Got, an initiative we’ve been supporting at Burston scheme as a means of encouraging you to make the most of your garden and patio spaces! We found the 3 days we spent in Birmingham really inspiring and we can’t wait to see what you make of our product range for 2016!
