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.
Well, like the rest of the world, our plans for this year are very much up in the air.
Our first seven shows have been either cancelled or re-scheduled for later in the year; at the moment Blenheim Palace Flower show will be our opening event followed by Hampton Court. There are no guarantees that either show will happen at the moment!
So, to keep us out of mischief we have decided to create a website. Which would be great if we knew what we were doing…. Don’t expect a site that is swish and slick and does exciting things. Don’t expect regular posts or interesting articles (not for a long long time anyway). But feel free to laugh at typo’s, design faults and general stuff going wrong. We are on a learning curve and are just going to enjoy the ride.
Thanks for riding with us!
