Next year Glee will see its overall footprint increase, as it moves from four to five halls of the NEC...</p> <p> </p> <p>The updated June timing of Glee – put in place for the 2022 event to better facilitate the needs of the entire garden retail supply chain – has served to position the show at the very heart of the international event calendar, with both UK and international brands already benefitting from the brand exposure that exhibiting at Glee represents. However, significant expansion plans are on the horizon; plans which are earmarked to ensure that the 2023 event will offer even more opportunities for growth, as international buyers and retail teams make a beeline for the exhibition to build new relationships and expand their retail networks. Here, some of these exciting plans are revealed for the first time.</p> <p> </p> <p><img align="right" src="http://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/v2files/shard1/54235/fc/045c1d9ac988798666f7c7.jpg" style="margin: 10px;" width="275" height="314" hspace="10" vspace="10" alt="" />Matthew Mein, Event Director at Glee said; “The move to June timing marked the biggest change in Glee’s history and we are keen to keep up with the evolving trends and demands that have made gardening and garden retailing one of the most exciting retail stories in recent years. At Glee 2023 the further development of this story will continue apace, as we look to expand and add more value than ever. Watch this space as  more information is revealed over the coming months but rest assured next year’s edition of Glee will be bigger, better and brighter than ever!”</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>New opportunities at Glee</strong></p> <p>In 2023 Glee will see its overall footprint increase, as it moves from four to five halls of the NEC. This additional space will allow for key sectors of the show to expand and provide a more comprehensive offering, as well as enabling new growth areas to find a home at Glee.</p> <p><strong> </strong></p> <p><strong>HOME, GIFT & CLOTHING</strong></p> <p>One exciting development for 2023 is that Home, Gift & Clothing will evolve into a complete village, reflecting the increased popularity of these product categories within garden retailing. This dedicated area will play host to a range of fresh, inspiring, on-trend products, including outdoor clothing, decorative accessories, toys and books. The new Home, Gift & Clothing Village will provide the perfect background for retailers who are looking to diversify their offering and will also give suppliers the chance to capitalise on and be part of a fantastic profit opportunity.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>OUTDOOR ENTERTAINING</strong></p> <p>Another existing sector in which further growth is anticipated is Glee Outdoor Entertaining. The nation’s gardens have increasingly become sanctuaries from the chaos of the world, which in turn, saw sales of garden furniture, barbeques, lighting, outdoor heating, garden décor and accessories skyrocket. Glee has witnessed a marked increase in the number of exhibitors from within these categories, as well as greater demand from retail buyers seeking outdoor entertaining products, meaning next year’s show will provide a real destination for this combined product offering.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>DIY</strong></p> <p>DIY will also be making its debut at Glee 2023, with this specialist category joining the line-up. As garden projects give consumers greater confidence and the line between indoor and outdoor becomes increasingly blurred, the presence of DIY products at the show will be welcome news for those garden retailers who want to optimise the potential this poses, with products that will complement existing ranges whilst also opening up prospects with a new customer base.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>SOURCING AT GLEE</strong></p> <p>With so many more opportunities for retail buyers and the chance to capitalise on key trends, Glee 2023 is set to become a destination for international sourcing, as buyers from right across the UK and the rest of the globe flock to the show, taking advantage of the easy accessibility of the NEC in Birmingham. To cater to this demand, Glee will host a dedicated area for sourcing at the 2023 event, which will facilitate better networking and help more suppliers and retailers connect.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>FIRE, GRILL & CHILL</strong></p> <p>Launched exclusively at the 2022 event, Fire, Grill and Chill brings together the best that Glee’s Outdoor Entertainment exhibitors have to offer. From product demonstrations to hosting the annual Glee party, this space has opened up an exciting and interactive way of showcasing the latest innovations from leading barbecue, grill and pizza oven suppliers. In 2023, the area will not only return but Glee’s organisers have big plans to further develop this hub with more content and even more brands set to join the line-up.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Find out more </strong></p> <p>Glee is the UK’s leading garden retail show, focussing on building year-round profits for buyers and suppliers within the core gardening and outdoor leisure product categories.  To keep up to date on the latest Glee news visit <a href="https://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/Gleeedailynews/sthmgnrslry/external"><strong>www.gleebirmingham.com</strong></a>.  To enquire about exhibiting at Glee 2023 which will take place June 27th – 29th, please call +44 (0)203 3545 9752.</p> Key trends as Glee has June 2023 in its sights https://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/Gleeedailynews/190dvdhffjf?lang=en?rss=true Glee's organising team looks at key trends emerging from this year’s show and ahead to 27th-29th June 2023 for an early glimpse of what’s in store for the UK’s most important garden centre trade exhibition. 22 Jul 2022 12:00:00 BST 2e08f2834c19173f6dae72cb0fb55066 Feature Story Pink Right <p><img src="http://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/v2files/shard1/54235/04/4882760c651fb7cf38cfcb.jpg" style="margin: 0px;" width="450" height="300" hspace="0" vspace="0" alt="" /></p> <p>Glee's organising team looks at key trends emerging from this year’s show and ahead to 27th-29th June 2023 for an early glimpse of what’s in store for the UK’s most important garden centre trade exhibition.</p> <p><img src="http://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/v2files/shard1/54235/4e/fc1bf642b3cf1d5a239738.jpg" style="margin: 0px;" width="530" height="353" hspace="0" vspace="0" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p>Glee's organising team looks at key trends emerging from this year’s show and ahead to 27th-29th June 2023 for an early glimpse of what’s in store for the UK’s most important garden centre trade exhibition.</p> <p> </p> <p>If one key message emerged from the superb content programme offered at Glee 2022, it was that despite the huge economic challenges our country is facing, the gardening industry is better placed than almost any other to not just survive but thrive. Always strong on content, Glee pulled out all the stops with a host of expert commentators who were united in their belief that the future is bright for gardening. Retail consultant, Alan O'Neil, who helped grow the fortunes of Selfridges, Fenwick and Harrods amongst others, put it this way: “Gardening is one of the lucky sectors coming out of the pandemic, in a time where we see the pace, complexity and volume of change accelerating.” </p> <p> </p> <p>As retailers adjust their business models and learn new skills to keep up with consumer shifts, the trade event that serves them has also changed with the times. This has already seen Glee shift from its historic September date to a late June timeframe which better suits the buying patterns of garden centers and other outdoor living specialists.</p> <p> </p> <p>Commenting on the new June date, GCA Chairman and Managing Director of Millbrook Garden Centres, Tammy Woodhouse, said: “In the long-term, I think the new slot will help us make buying decisions earlier and allow us to have a summer sale and clear through old stock to make way for new ranges for next year,” whilst British Garden Centres’ Joint Managing Director, Charles Stubbs added: “It was great to see Glee back and in such good health! The level of commitment to the industry from suppliers was obvious through their NPD and investment in existing stock. I was particularly impressed by the number of new exhibitors; every one of them relevant to our industry.”</p> <p> </p> <p>Robin Mercer, the owner of Belfast-based Hillmount Garden Centres and recipient of the coveted Best Independent Award in this year’s Buyer’s Power List, also shared his thoughts on the show, saying:  “We need to go to shows to see what is new, and the stand quality here is very, very good, the layout is great, it’s spacious and easy to get around. People have gone to a lot of effort to make their stands look nice and decorate them well with nice features. We also make a point of visiting the New Product Showcase while we’re here. We have placed a few orders already but there are many more suppliers we still want to see”.</p> <p> </p> <p>Robin and his retail colleagues were truly spoilt for choice at this year’s Glee, where exhibitor levels were back to pre-pandemic numbers, 170 new brands – never-before seen at the event – showcased their latest innovations and international exhibitors from 22 countries came out in force. Exhibitors were in agreement that the quality of retailers in attendance was also very high, with all the major garden centre groups sending buying teams and a wealth of independents from around the UK turning out to support the industry’s prime new product launchpad.</p> <p> </p> <p>Lauren O'Neil of Stratford Garden Centre concurred with the positive sentiment, saying: "It’s been good, very strong. We picked up a few new suppliers; more of the smaller people we noticed as we went round and thought ‘they look good’.”</p> <p> </p> <p><img src="http://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/v2files/shard1/54235/3b/66d5e65c4dbcb885bd9b18.jpg" style="margin: 0px;" width="530" height="353" hspace="0" vspace="0" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Driving Innovation and Celebrating Newness</strong></p> <p>Newness, of course, is the name of the game when it comes to inspiring buying and Glee had so much to offer in the way of product innovation, especially in the all-important realm of sustainability, which is firmly at the top of all buying agendas and consumer wish lists. This newness will be amplified at next year’s event, when the show will extend from four to five halls of the NEC, enabling key sectors to expand and opening up new growth areas for Glee.</p> <p> </p> <p>After an exceptionally strong 2022 showing, which saw buyers turning up in droves to place orders ahead of Christmas, the Home, Gift & Clothing sector at Glee will be transformed into a dedicated village for trend-driven garden home and giftware.  A new DIY sector will also debut at the 2023 show, whilst the International Sourcing sector – new for 2023 – will help make Glee an important destination for major wholesale buyers and procurement experts in the years to come.</p> <p> </p> <p>Outdoor Entertaining – a booming category as Brits give a unanimous thumb’s up to home entertaining – is also set to grow for next year’s event, as demand for outdoor entertainment products remains high. During his fascinating seminar on opportunities for growth in the current economic climate, HTA Head of Research, David Denny, pointed out that:</p> <p> </p> <p>“Even before the pandemic, outdoor living was on an upwards trajectory, but over the last 12-18 months it has accelerated in growth, and few would disagree that garden retail has benefitted from this positive trend. The question now on the garden industry’s mind is how does it continue to engage with this new consumer group, and can this continuous growth be maintained?”</p> <p> </p> <p><img src="http://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/v2files/shard1/54235/dc/e3b7f8817f91f5498bebbf.jpg" style="margin: 0px;" width="530" height="353" hspace="0" vspace="0" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p>Glee is here to help meet that challenge, with a host of exciting plans for the development of this vital sector at next year’s show, with the outdoor demonstration zone, Fire, Grill & Chill, playing an important part in this expansion. (Finger’s crossed for some summer sun!).</p> <p> </p> <p>Glee Event Director, Matthew Mein, said; “We are incredibly excited about the continuing evolution of Glee at such a pivotal time of growth and change for the gardening industry. Through the support of innovation and by driving newness in every market sector, inspiring buyers and helping to inform their purchasing decisions in a rapidly changing environment, Glee has a vital role to play. We are more than ready to meet the challenges and help our customers to make the most of opportunities, facilitated by our new June date which opens up Glee to the most important buying cycle for trade.”</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Find out more</strong></p> <p>Glee is the UK’s leading garden retail show, focussing on building year-round profits for buyers and suppliers within the core gardening and outdoor leisure product categories.  To keep up to date on the latest Glee news visit <a href="https://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/Gleeedailynews/1mmhja3j7gu/external" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">www.gleebirmingham.com</a>.  To enquire about exhibiting at Glee 2023 which will take place June 27th – 29th, please call +44 (0)203 3545 9752.</p> Watch the first episode of Glee TV https://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/Gleeedailynews/8mgveu7fghq?lang=en?rss=true As Glee 2022 came to a close, GTN's Trevor Pfeiffer interviewed Glee Show Director Matthew Mein for Glee TV.

Once the first bottle is purchased, consumers thereafter are encouraged to re-use it, allowing them to only pay for the liquid refill (£3.99).

The stand allows consumers to purchase as much grass seed (99p per 100G) or controlled release plant food (67p per 100g) as they need – again, allowing consumers to save money by only purchasing what they intend to use. Contrary to the Tomorite station where a Tomorite-specific bottle is required, this station will allow users the options to either purchase a Miracle-Gro jar for life (£1.25), use a free paper bag, or bring their own preferred container to fill. </p> <p> </p> <p><img src="http://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/v2files/shard1/54235/31/4c5efcd9978567cefe04df.jpg" style="margin: 0px;" width="300" height="400" hspace="0" vspace="0" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p>Evergreen Garden Care will be displaying a refill station at Glee, for users to see and test them out for themselves. </p> <p> </p> <p>Stand Number : 20C40-D41</p> <p> </p> <p>For more inspiration, please visit <a href="https://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/Gleeedailynews/c82txztqnrj/external" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">www.lovethegarden.com</a>.</p> <p>For more product information, please visit <a href="https://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/Gleeedailynews/mslxc6rz3ab/external" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">https://evergreentrade.co.uk/</a></p> <p>For media enquiries, please email  <a href="mailto:evergreengarden@wildcard.co.uk">evergreengarden@wildcard.co.uk</a></p> http://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/v2files/shard1/54235/14/d5901da2dcde806b32c2bd.jpg New Tiered Planters from EKJU https://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/Gleeedailynews/wt2ija3r4to?lang=en?rss=true Timber garden manufacturer EKJU have added new innovative products to their grow your own range, further strengthening their raised bed product category... 30 Jun 2022 12:00:00 BST 3072ab4bae04a1e4b61aad1a55f79f78 Feature Story Pink Left <p>Timber garden manufacturer EKJU have added new innovative products to their grow your own range, further strengthening their raised bed product category...</p> <p>Timber garden manufacturer EKJU have added new innovative products to their grow your own range, further strengthening their raised bed product category.</p> <p> </p> <p>Known for manufacturing quality garden furniture, EKJU also have an impressive grow your own category with many shapes and sizes of Raised Beds and Garden Planters, which cater for differing garden sizes.

She also tested existing branded products based on digestates and other organic materials available from garden centres. </p> <p> </p> <p>It’s been a sobering process and the scientific team at Bloomin Amazing, together with Rachel and University professors, in the end had to conclude that NONE of the digestate formulations tested, <em>including several branded products already on the market</em>, performed well enough to be considered a viable alternative to peat-based compost. </p> <p> </p> <p>Nick Finding, Managing Director commented, “To be honest we are disappointed because we recognise that there is demand for good alternatives to peat and Bloomin Amazing would be a great and sustainable option. Whilst we did produce some acceptable formulations that gave us reasonable results, we don’t want to go to market with anything less than an excellent and efficacious product that will delight our customers. We are aware of quite a lot of problems with other digestate based growing media products and its very important to us that we only market products that we can guarantee are of excellent quality and effectiveness.”</p> <p> </p> <p>Bloomin AmazingSoil Enricher is available in 50L bags with a suggested retail price of £6.49.</p> <p> </p> <p>To find out more about Bloomin Amazing go to <a href="https://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/Gleeedailynews/6egbb7impmy/external" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">www.bloominamazing.com</a> or e-mail Nick at <a href="mailto:nfinding@bloominamazing.com">nfinding@bloominamazing.com</a> or call head office to speak to us on 01305 889525</p> http://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/v2files/shard1/54235/95/f6118bf8d2f980a9b3aea2.png Technological advances in DIY pest control https://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/Gleeedailynews/1dxts77ydva?lang=en?rss=true The market for DIY pest control is growing strongly and most consumers go first to their laptop, phone or tablet for advice.

The outdoor living boom means more gardens have fire pits, pizza ovens, wood fired hot tubs and grills. Rising energy prices have seen more homeowners install log burners indoors. </p> <p> </p> <p>There are more applications for firewood in the UK home than ever before.</p> <p> </p> <p>In May 2021 the legislation around the moisture content of firewood that can be sold changed. Homeowners should be aware of the legislative changes. The sale of wet wood (where moisture content is over 20%) was banned.</p> <p> </p> <p>Fuel that isn’t dried is particularly bad for the environment. Burning dry wood is far less polluting.

It is made from recycled coconut shells.</p> <p> </p> <p>This coconut shell BBQ charcoal is supplied as compacted briquette blocks that are extremely suitable for barbecues, providing several benefits to the barbecue owner. They produce more energy than standard wood charcoal, which in turn produces higher heat, and they are slow burning and long lasting with a much longer burn time. Coco Burn briquettes burn for at least three hours and are easy to light with a quick ignition time. Being dense, compacted blocks, they are 40% more efficient than firewood.</p> <p> </p> <p>Coco Burn also solves two long-standing problems of grilling and basic barbecue cooking – it is smokeless and virtually ashless, eliminating these hassles from the cooking process. </p> <p> </p> <p>The briquettes are 100% natural, which are, like all Southern Trident’s growing media products, made from the by-product/waste of the coconut industry. Wood charcoal, on the other hand, is made from and harvested from virgin wood. The coconut shells would otherwise go to waste if not recycled into new products, making Coco Burn highly environmentally responsible and a guaranteed renewable and sustainable energy source. This ensures that Coco Burn conforms to the company’s sustainable philosophy – Green Today, Greener Tomorrow.</p> <p> </p> <p>Coco Burn is suitable for use on charcoal and gas/charcoal hybrid barbecues and is available in three sizes, 3kg, 5kg and 10kg.</p> <p> </p> <p>Coco Burn joins the growing range of environmentally-responsible products, all sourced and created from recycled raw materials and by-products from other industries.</p> http://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/v2files/shard1/54235/92/36f71bfb841c1d81897cfd.jpg Red Gorilla showcases Garden Companion Set

For 2022 it is the team at Qwickhose that reigns victorious, having impressed the judges with its remarkable solution to the common issues associated with hose pipe connectors. Here we find out more about this year’s winners and those that just missed out on the coveted prize.</p> <p> </p> <p>Qwickhose was borne during lockdown when a portfolio of previous concepts was turned into a reality. As outdoor living stole the focus when millions of people turned to their gardens for entertainment, the team at Qwickhose put their hearts and souls into the creation of this simple yet effective solution to hosepipe connector issues.</p> <p> </p> <p>Recognising the issues that come from standard hosepipe connectors breaking under force, popping off mid-use or simply taking too long to install, Qwickhose is designed to alleviate all these frustrations.  Built to be long-lasting and robust, the Qwickhose Hose Connector uses a unique winged clamping system for quick and easy connection. Simply push the hose onto the inner tube, clamp the wings shut and secure them with the nut. The extra-long connector then acts as a handle. Unlike traditional hose connectors, there are no breakable teeth, making it more reliable, longer-lasting and leak-free.</p> <p> </p> <p>Beating off stiff competition and judged by a panel made up of both Glee and GIMA representatives, Qwickhose will now receive support up to the value of £6,000 to help with development and marketing costs associated with entering the UK garden retail market. This includes a year of full GIMA membership and a wide range of business support tools.</p> <h4><strong>In addition to choosing a winner, the panel also selected two shortlisted companies – Cheeky Charlie Ovens and Seedbooks. The first is a new concept in charcoal cooking which takes the principles of professional ovens to create an exciting new chapter for al fresco dining, whilst each of the Seedbooks combines up to six different seed varieties, supported with recipes and growing tips.</strong></h4> <p>GIMA Director, Vicky Nuttall said: “We are so pleased to name Qwickhose as our eighth GIMA Innovators Seed Corn Fund winner.  Not only does the Qwickhose offering provide an alternative to existing hosepipe connectors, but it is clear from the design and construction that this is a product that has been passionately and carefully designed. I am sure this is one product garden and DIY retailers will want to see.”</p> <p> </p> <p>To find out more about the GIMA Innovators’ Seed Corn Fund please join GIMA on-stand at 7G40-6A41. </p> <p> </p> <p>Qwickhose can be found at Glee within Hall 19 Stand H58</p> http://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/v2files/shard1/54235/b7/b29ff2858f11087e1d22af.jpg Happy Plants win Green Heart best display award https://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/Gleeedailynews/eyrmabju536?lang=en?rss=true Happy Plants won the Great Heart Best Display award at Glee... 01 Jul 2022 12:00:00 BST ce0a95bd81a39f174533c1b3c4e24abe Right Side Articles Cover <p>Happy Plants won the Great Heart Best Display award at Glee...</p> <p><img src="http://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/v2files/shard1/54235/10/9553ffb6e8c357e366459c.jpg" style="margin: 0px;" width="530" height="345" hspace="0" vspace="0" alt="" /></p> <p> </p> <p>Happy Plants won the Great Heart Best Display award at Glee...</p> <p> </p> <p><img src="http://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/v2files/shard1/54235/56/5d864ace3a7960be9414f8.jpg" style="margin: 0px;" width="530" height="353" hspace="0" vspace="0" alt="" /></p> http://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/v2files/shard1/54235/25/195939122647388b831dd2.png Glee 2022 Show Guide available online https://gleedailynews.newsweaver.com/Gleeedailynews/12p8y7z08bg?lang=en?rss=true The Glee 2022 Show Guide is available in digital format as well as being a printed version available free at the exhibition... 27 Jun 2022 12:00:00 BST c0a8e5ca48b2420b45fc902e502fb34b Right Side Articles Cover <p>The Glee 2022 Show Guide is available in digital format as well as being a printed version available free at the exhibition...</p> <div style="position: relative; padding-top: max(60%,326px); height: 0; width: 100%;"><iframe style="position: absolute; border: none; width: 100%; height: 100%; left: 0; right: 0; top: 0; bottom: 0;" src="https://e.issuu.com/embed.html?backgroundColor=%2372c5bf&backgroundColorFullscreen=%2372c5bf&d=glee_show_guide_2022_complete&hideIssuuLogo=true&showOtherPublicationsAsSuggestions=true&u=gardentradenews" width="320" height="180" frameborder="0" sandbox="allow-top-navigation allow-top-navigation-by-user-activation allow-downloads allow-scripts allow-same-origin allow-popups allow-modals allow-popups-to-escape-sandbox" allowfullscreen="true"></iframe></div> <p style="margin-top: 0px; padding-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 0.5em;">The Glee 2022 Show Guide is available in digital format as well as being a printed version available free at the exhibition.
