A blooming good night: industry awards win for Burgon & Ball

We were thrilled to bits recently to take top honours at the GIMA Awards 2018 with our Garden Supplies range of gifts, storage and sundries for gardeners.

These major awards from the Garden Industry Manufacturers' Association (GIMA) are probably the gardening industry's biggest night out, and it was certainly a night to remember for us. We were also named a finalist in four other categories, including ‘Garden Tools, Machinery and Implements’ (with the Wonder Weed Puller), Best Point of Sale Material’ (with the ‘All You Need’ merchandising kit), and the coveted ‘Supplier of the Year’.

We took first place in the ‘Garden Clothing & Gifts’ category, with our Garden Supplies collection. The range has been created to provide perfect solutions for shoppers seeking gifting inspiration for a gardening loved one, combining practicality with exceptionally stylish design. They also make a pretty smart treat for yourself!

The GIMA judges described the range as “a beautifully crafted collection, and perfect gifts for gardeners, young and old.” Developed by gardeners, for gardeners, the collection features lots of thoughtful design touches. For example, the seed packet storage tin includes a full-width compartment, for storing the largest of seed packets.

We really are delighted that our Garden Supplies collection has been honoured by the judges. We put a lot of work into designing the range to be not only useful to gardeners, but to be extremely stylish, too – and this award demonstrates that these gifts really are something special.

We already knew the collection is loved by gardeners; when we took a selection of items to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in May, they proved hugely popular with visitors to our stand, and we completely sold out of several items. This award reveals that the collection is a hit with the top industry judges, too - and we couldn't be happier!

The range consists of a garden caddy, a seed packet storage tin, a pegboard, a twine dispenser, a bird food container, a set of herb pots in a tray, an indoor watering can, money boxes, and a bits and bobs tin, all available in a selection of colours. With RRPs ranging from just £8.99 up to £24.99, Garden Supplies offers something for every gardener.

If you're looking for inspiration for a gardening gift - or in the mood for treating yourself! - why not browse the full collection?
