New product development has been the key to the success of Garland/Worth Gardening with many new product ideas being driven by feedback and input from customers. Already this year the company has achieved growth of around £1million, and the launch of 54 new products for the 2021 season will help to consolidate future growth for the company and its customers.
Included in the new products for next season are a car boot protection range and a barbecue grill cleaning tray range, but the emphasis is firmly set on environmentally friendly products and GYO. These include new Bio-Based trays and a Growing Tray made from plastic free food-based materials. These plastic free growing trays are made from 100 per cent bio-based materials and are compostable. There are two new Microgreen growing trays that have two-tier holes that allow for optimal watering and drainage. The Premium Cell inserts range has been extended with a 12-cell version and a new 12-cell Seed Starter Set. The long-life injection moulded inserts give years of use and carry a ten-year guarantee.
The new Car Boot Protection range comprises three sizes of car boot liners and a range of rigid boot trays. The trays are available in four sizes to fit the most common car boots, but at a much more affordable price than the car manufacturers’ load liners.
The new Barbecue Grill Soaker Tray range is suitable for all of the most common sizes of barbecue grills and is designed to take the hard work out of grill cleaning.
Further lines have been added to both the Twines & Wires range and the Garden Basics range. One interesting addition is a 5mx5cm Natural Jute Webbing Tree Tie that is made from 100 per cent natural and biodegradable jute. The material is strong, yet gentle and will naturally biodegrade as the tree requires less support. Other additions to the range are ratchet wire strainers and bio-based plant clips.
Other new products include seed tray capillary matting, a giant parasol cover, jute bags for composting leaves and path/shed base gravel grids.
Further additions come in the form of colour changes throughout the Garland/Worth Gardening catalogue.
The opening of new purpose-built warehouse close to its manufacturing plant in Kingswinford, West Midlands will ensure efficient and speedy delivery of all of Garland/Worth Gardening’s products ranges.
Garland’s commitment to expanding its wide range of products is coupled with its desire to achieve this aim in a way that recognises the need to protect the environment. The latest products focus firmly on sustainability and packaging, especially single use plastics. Plastic packaging has been removed on many of the products that cannot easily be recycled via the kerbside recycling system. This move has been implemented across all of the company’s propagation ranges, including pots and fibre pots. The same has also been done across the twines and wires range and it is the intention to extend this over the coming year. Also, the garden basics range is now packed in 100 per cent recycled and recyclable packaging. Furthermore, the company recycles and reuses all of the plastic waste generated in its UK factory, ensuring that no plastic waste is sent to landfill.
The Garland Products Group specialises in the manufacture of plastic injection moulded products and is one of the fastest growing suppliers to the garden industry. The products available to both keen and hobby gardeners have been designed through the company’s own experience as keen gardeners.
