Garden products firm, Gardman has refuted rumours that it has already or is set to cease trading as a result of a huge blaze at its Daventry warehouse earlier this month.

A spokesperson told DIY Week: “Following the fire at our warehouse in Daventry on March 12, we can confirm that we will use our warehouse at Kings Lynn to supply customers until a permanent warehousing solution has been identified... We will divert our stock sat at UK ports and stock arriving from overseas to the Kings Lynn site. We are also planning to supply an essential range of wild bird care products from our UK and European suppliers, again through our Kings Lynn facility. We estimate it will take us five days to get our operation up and running. Therefore, we are planning first shipments w/c March 26. 

“In the meantime, we continue to liaise with Northamptonshire Police and the other emergency services and remain thankful that there were no injuries.

“We have received many expressions of support from our customers and suppliers and we would like to thank you all for your patience during this difficult period as we put our recovery plan into action.

“We will continue to update you as we progress via our website www.gardman.co.uk
