April 21st - 24th
The Harrogate Spring Flower Show
The Show was a great success and even though the layout of the
Show was totally different many people found us and went away
with new tools or features! We were unsure about the new position
but it did work well, however, it will be back to the normal spot
for the Autumn Show - we think! Watch this space. The sun
came out for most of the time, though it was cold but it didn't
deter the hardy gardeners. We were pleased to receive a
Bronze Award for our stand.
|May 5th - 8th|
RHS Malvern Spring Festival
This turned out to be our best Show at Malvern - the weather was good for most of the time except the Saturday late afternoon when
the heavens opened and thunder and lightening all around us - the Showground turned into a river for many of us but thankfully come Sunday it had drained away. Our 'meet and greet' member of staff (Jack our Border Terrier) worked hard receiving lots of fuss from
customers new and old. He has certainly made many friends over
the 5 years he has been coming with us. Thank you to everyone
who made purchases - we hope to see you in the Autumn in our
old spot. It was good to receive a Highly Commended for our stand.
Plant Hunter's Fair, Arley Arboretum, nr. Bewdley, Worcs.
Unfortunately this wasn't the best Show for us - the date coincided with many other events not least The Queen's Birthday celebrations!
Thank you to those customers who came and visited us.
| July 20th - 24th|
RHS Flower Show, Tatton Park
Once again this proved to be a very good Show - we met many return customers and welcomed new customers who have a love for using 'vintage' garden tools. The 'features' we had for sale - planters, galvanised tubs, ladders etc. were all very popular and many of them sold so it made loading the van for our journey home a lot easier!! We love the open feel of the Show and of course the weather was very kind to us which always helps. We hope to see you all again next year.
|Sept. 16th - 18th|
Harrogate Autumn Show - Stand no. GS48
We had another successful visit to the Harrogate and it was good to see so many return visitors to our Stand. We were back in our old spot so it made it a bit easier for customers to find us again. The Show had a slightly different layout due to the new building being used. We were pleased to receive a Silver Award for our Stand which makes us feel the effort we put in to the display is appreciated. Thank you to all who came.
Sept. 24th - 25th
Malvern Autumn Show, Three Counties Showground - Stand no.4010
Another good Show to end the season - back in our usual spot for the Autumn. The layout of the Show was different again but still very full and lots for people to see. We managed to display plenty of features and a wide variety of tools for this our last Show of the season.
Thank you to all who came, said hello and bought from us. Jack, our Border Terrier, met lots of old friends and made new ones s o he was very happy!
