Garden Press Event 2019

Spring Newsletter

We’re delighted to provide you with the following snapshot

of what’s in store for you when you come and visit the

Garden Press Event in February this year.

It’s really starting to take shape now, with lots of familiar

companies joining us once again, but a very healthy

selection of new exhibitors for you to meet.

About the Event

The 2019 event takes place on 27th February, returning to

the Business Design Centre in Islington.

We had great feedback about our new venue last year, that

we’ve decided to return there once again and we hope to

make it our home for a while to come.

Garden Media Guild

We are once again delighted that the Garden Media Guild

has agreed to support our central refreshments area, where

they’ll be on hand to tell you more about their organisation if

you’re not already familiar with them.

We look forward to welcoming you to the exhibition.

GREEN IS THE NEW BLACK!!

As consumers move away from buying material goods and purchasing ‘stuff’ there is a strong desire to use

their disposable income to do and experience more. This is good news for the garden industry on several

different levels. Consumers are interested in doing more with their outdoor space (no matter what size)

and getting back to nature. They are also keen to learn new skills, get creative or simply just enjoy their

environment as an escape from the pressures of modern life.

Millennials are certainly instrumental in the healthy growth of the houseplant market in recent years. Not

only do the plants look good but they have the added benefit of working as individual air filtration units.

Gardens and gardening have so many health and wellbeing benefits, as outlined in the HTA’s Gardening is

Good for You campaign (which you can find out more about at the Garden Press Event).

Garden centres play a natural role as community hubs and once again this has come to the fore in recent

years as people move away from the high street. The environment of the garden centre is friendly and

inviting and attracts people for all sorts of reasons from buying plants, to visiting the cafes and restaurants,

to attending creative classes or just to meet with friends. Supporting local businesses and the community

is also a strong driver amongst consumers.

We have also seen an increase in peoples’ desire to lessen their impact on global resources – from plastic

use to growing their own. Aligned with this is the whole idea of provenance and consumer interest in

finding out where the things they buy are from. Many growers and garden centres shout about where

their products originate, especially where their plants are grown, often supplying back stories of the

growers themselves. This also links in with plant health and the biosecurity agenda which the HTA is

working hard with government and other organisations on.

Exciting times for the garden industry who are well placed to meet the needs of today’s consumers. There

are so many great stories to tell and the Garden Press Event is just the start!!
