Stewart Garden, now more than 70 years old, will be showcasing new initiatives at Glee (18K14-L15).
Among the company’s successful 2015 launches is the Varese planters collection (pictured), which has gone from strength to strength and exceeding its targeted growth.
Stewart invested £400,000 in a new rotational moulding machine at its Banbury factory earlier this year for use in the decorative planter category. The new machine will enable a 27% increase in production.
Launched in April after extensive consumer testing, the brand’s new website makes it easier and more enjoyable to browse products and select stockists.
The Stewart Garden Schools Campaign, launched in 2012, has engaged with more than 100 schools nationwide, challenging pupils aged 6-11 years to get creative with Stewart Garden products. Schools taking part receive a kit worth more than £400 to get their projects up and running, while the winning school receives £1,000 to spend at its local garden centre.
Juan Pillay, marketing director at Stewart Garden, said: “There’s been so much happening here at Stewart this year, as visitors to our stand will discover. We’ll be announcing the winner of this year’s Stewart Garden Schools campaign and launching the 2017 campaign. We’ll also be presenting a number of new products at the show.”
