Wholesaler Stax Trade Centres is stepping up attempts to attract garden centres and increase its penetration of the garden market.
Stax joint md David Hibbert said: "We have seen an upturn this year. The warm weather has prompted more trips to the garden centre. As a result we are showing strong gardening sales, especially in well-known brands, including Scotts, Bayer, Town & Country, Hozelock, Rentokil, Vitax, STV and Pagoda."
The firm is taking a bigger stand at Glee this year and will exhibit its own brands: the Ambassador range of garden tools, the new Glenwear range of workwear and clothing and a selection of its popular value brand SupaGarden.
