The horticultural hub of Glee, the Green Heart, is making its return later this year and is set to provide one of the first face-to-face networking opportunities for the plant trade sector within the last two years. Working in partnership with Woodlodge – the Green Heart’s official merchandising bench supplier – Glee Green Heart is a must-attend event for any retailer wanting to optimise the unprecedented growth of green living in autumn 2021 and beyond.
This year’s Green Heart will be home to a number of leading brands, including Key Essentials, Craigmarloch Nurseries Ltd, Porters/Happy Plants, The Bransford Webb Plant Company, Lovania Nurseries Ltd, New Leaf Plants, MNP Flowers, Pacific Nurseries and John Richards Nurseries – all coming together to create the strongest display of new plant varieties and inspiration for plant buyers and retailers looking to develop both their indoor and outdoor plant offering in the coming season.
Matthew Mein, Glee Event Director said: “The Green Heart is a really important part of Glee and is designed to put plants right at the centre of the show but, more than this, we want to arm retailers and growers with a platform to communicate – whether in regard to what’s new or how to better drive sales in-store.
“After a significant period of growth for plants, this year’s Glee Green Heart will be more vital than ever. This year’s event will provide plant suppliers and growers with a cost-effective solution for showcasing their latest ranges, to owners and buyers from an unrivalled selection of UK-based independent garden retail businesses, as well as from many of the chains, multiple groups and complementary garden retailers.”
Plants will also be celebrated through Glee’s dedicated New Product Showcase with the dedicated Garden Plants, Seeds and Bulbs award.
