Smart Garden were honoured with the Greatest Garden Products Supplier of the Year Award at the HTA Garden Futures Conference and dinner on Wednesday 4th October at Heythrop Park, Enstone, Oxfordshire – marking the second year in a row that the company has walked away with the accolade.
The award was presented to Smart Garden’s Managing Director Jonathan Stobart and Sales Director Paul Knott, by BBC rural affairs correspondent and Countryfile presenter Tom Heap, and awards host and founder Trevor Pfeiffer from Garden Trade News and GTNXtra.
Sponsored by Elho and Glee, the award, voted for by garden centres, is given to suppliers that go above and beyond in the service of their retail customers.
Trevor Pfeiffer, Director of Potting Shed Press (formerly the Garden Centre Media Company),
said: “Smart Garden came out top in the supplier votes for their all-round ability to supply to garden trade customers. But for the majority of the retailers I spoke to, the main factor was sales consistency – the product range just keeps selling all year round.”
Jonathan Stobart, Managing Director of Smart Garden said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive this award for the second year running. I am incredibly proud of my team and would like to thank our garden centre customers especially for so generously rewarding our efforts once again.”
