Back British Business urges Durstons


This year Durston Garden Products is returning to Glee with a specific message to Retailers and that is to BUY BRITISH.


“With Brexit negotiations now well under way, we need to consider the way we do business in the UK going forward” says NEW, National Sales and Marketing Manager, Dan Durston.

Dan, a sixth generation of Durston says, “I am really looking forward to meeting and greeting both old and new customers alike in my new role at GLEE this year and persuading them that BUYING BRITISH is the right way to go. Shopping closer to home makes so much more sense and is not always as expensive as we’ve been led to believe. In fact here at Durstons we not only supply an extensive range of growing media products, which offer exceptional value-for-money, but we are confident that we can beat any price out there, and what’s more, we can deliver those products in just five days from  receipt of order! Now that’s got to be a good thing”.


Family owned for over 150 years, Durston Garden Products has been supplying composts and other growing media related products from its base in Somerset for 3 generations, so knows a thing or two about ‘what’s hot and what’s not’ when it comes to compost. It’s most popular brands include Manor Farm and its premium Multi-Purpose compost, but the entire range comprise a seed & cutting compost, tub and basket, an ericaceous compost, decorative bark, a John Innes range and much more.


 “As a family run business we can, and regularly do go that extra mile to accommodate last minute, one-off, urgent or tricky deliveries where retailers have been let down by their regular supplier” continues Dan. “It’s at times like this, when retailers are still feeling a trepid nervous about what’s to come following Brexit and are considering switching supplier, that we can hopefully persuade them that not only can we fix their short term supply problems, but that we can do so much more for them going forward.”


Some of the major benefits of stocking Durstons Garden Products include:

  • Extensive range
  • Home produced compost
  • Excellent quality
  • Added nutrient Gro-Boost technology
  • Bagged in state-of-the-art packaging facility in Somerset
  • Loaded onto Durston Lorry
  • Delivered anywhere in England and Wales within 5 days

     from receipt of order

  • Extremely price competitive


Durston Garden Products sales have grown significantly in recent years due in part to its investment in new plant and machinery. Combine this with the company’s recent investment also into a strategic BUY BRITISH marketing campaign and already you can see you have a company that is determined to make its mark going forward, not only as a true BRITISH supplier, but also as an all-round contender in the growing media arena.
