Burgon & Ball has seen three of its innovative new products recognised in the Glee New Product Awards 2017 with the new Wonder Weed Puller taking top honours in the Tools and Machinery category.
Naming the Wonder Weed Puller the winner, the judges remarked upon the new tool’s 10 year guarantee which brings peace of mind to gardeners, and its accessible price point (RRP just £19.99), offering a very cost-effective tool for efficient weeding of deep-rooted weeds in lawns.
Easy to operate and very effective, to use the Wonder Weed Puller simply push the three stainless steel prongs of the tool into the ground around the crown of the weed, rotate 360 degrees, and pull to remove the weed – roots and all. A plunger operated by a button on the handle ejects the weed into the waste, leaving hands clean.
Long-handled to eliminate bending and stooping, and designed in aluminium and tough polypropylene for minimum weight, the Wonder Weed Puller is brilliantly simple to use – and the weed ejector button makes it addictively satisfying!
The distinctive and engaging packaging features clear step-by-step instructions on the Wonder Weed Puller’s simple method for use, and has been created to complement the branding of the best-selling Weed Slice. Together, the pair offer a complete ‘family’ of chemical-free weeding solutions for both shallow- and deep-rooted weeds.
The Sheffield-based tool designer and manufacturer was also shortlisted with its ‘Dotty’ Kneelo children’s garden kneeler in the Garden Care - Growing Accessories category, and the Garden Supplies ‘Hang it’ pegboard in the Home, Gift and Clothing category.
The Dotty Kneelo® kneeler, one of the first products in a new collection for children, features Dotty the superhero ladybird, defending the garden from nasty aphid invaders. This bright, fun kneeler features ‘antennae’ for added cute factor, but otherwise has the same high quality construction as Burgon & Ball’s full-size Kneelo® designs, with two layers of memory foam around a core of EVA foam, for superb comfort while working – and playing! Friendly insect character Dotty the ladybird and her friend Buzz the bee have real kid appeal, helping garden centres expand their offering to the key family market.
Finally, the awards line-up was completed by the ‘Hang it’ peg board, reflecting the trend for more utilitarian storage. Supplied complete with hooks for hanging and all fixings to wall-mount, ‘Hang it’ makes it easy to keep those little essentials tidy and always to hand, in shed, garage or home office. The peg board is available in a choice of three on-trend colours and forms part of the new ‘Garden Supplies’ collection, the successor to the hugely popular Burgon & Ball Enamelwares range.
The three products enjoying awards recognition at the show were selected from the more than 70 new products launched on the Burgon & Ball stand, making it a ‘must-see’ for every show visitor.
