By far our bestseller for 2021 was our newest product – the Easy Pallet Planting Pot range! Gone are the days when we saved pallets up for bonfire night… So many of you have told me about your pallet upcycling projects – seats and benches, tables and wall decorations – and now you can plant them up with no effort.
These brilliant pots are made from recycled plastic, and are designed to fit standard pallets by sitting in the top or clipping over the sides. Available in three sizes and four colours their popularity took us by surprise and at several shows we were out of stock. (Sorry!)
Also made from recycled plastic, the Conny Drainpipe/Railing pot is a brilliant way to hide a downpipe and another practical way to introduce vertical planting if you are limited on outside space. The pot clips onto an easy to attach webbing strap which will fit an average (10cm) drainpipe with ease. (Strap included with pot.) Available in the same four colours as the Pallet Pots for simple colour coordination!
New for 2020 – We are really excited to be adding a splash of colour to our stand with The Green Pockets® from Blooming Walls®. Stylish hanging vertical planters for indoor or outdoor use – ideal for bringing a balcony or courtyard to life.
Our main product: we have been exhibiting Darlac tools since 2014 when we stepped into the (hard to fill) shoes of the original Team Darlac! Pete and Maggie created the Darlac brand, and worked tirelessly to promote it around the UK at countless consumer shows for over 30 years. We know that they built the product range using feedback from domestic and commercial gardeners to ensure that Darlac tools give you amazing quality at realistic prices. In August 2017 their hard work allowed them to retire; we continued to exhibit at the shows that they loved so much, rebranding the show side of the business as The Gardeners Show Shop. Mr Fothergills Seeds acquired the main tool business which they have successfully grown into a major player in the horticultural retail industry – Darlac tools are now stocked in a wealth of Garden Centres, Hardware Stores and Machinery Dealerships.
