From the Potting Shed....

Summer rolls on... towards Autumn Event season!

The glorious summer in the U.K. continues unabated and with this, the occupancy of the Outdoor Room has never been greater. For the garden retail sector this is producing record sales for plants and other outdoor products. As we head towards August, thoughts immediately turn to the plethora of Autumn trade events in both the U.K. and Europe.

We begin with the 33rd edition of Plantarium in Boskoop from August 27th onwards. This year there is a special sustainability square to establish a connection between current sales methods and a sustainable future.

Poland hosts its 'Green is Life' event in Warsaw from 28th and the following week, our focus switches back to the U.K. for the annual Four Oaks Trade event in Cheshire. U.K. growers such as Allensmore Nurseries (pictured above) will be promoting their Christmas lines as well as building on their 2015 order book!

The resurection of Glee (Sept 14-16) is to be commended and with a new Plant Atrium filling up, its good to see plants being restored to the show's profile. Many U.K. growers will be present including Gardener's Kitchen (pictured above) so let's hope this pays dividends.

Future Landscape and Public Realm 2014

As the momentum increases towards Expo 2020 in Dubai, this latest event in Doha, Qatar is announced. This will take place on October 27/28th. IPM Dubai follows in November with news of the next DIGC in February 2015 expected shortly.
