Burgon & Ball with Corona at GLEE - an American favourite meets the best of British

We'll be at the GLEE exhibition in Birmingham this year to launch a wide range of smart new ideas in gardening and giftware – and this year, we'll be joining with Corona Tools to give an exciting and exclusive first look at these exceptional tools from the USA.

At the September launch, leading American name in tools Corona will unveil a wide range of garden tools, specially selected for the UK market. Engineered for lasting performance, these outstanding tools are the choice of professional gardeners across the USA – and this autumn they will be available in the UK exclusively through Burgon & Ball.

In addition to these superb tools from the States, we'll be launching a new hoe design, which cuts weeding time in half. Literally swinging into action, the twin-edged blades slice into the ground at the perfect angle on both the push and pull strokes. Speed sells, they say – and this new hoe is destined to be a best-seller.

To further cut weeds down to size, visitors will be able to see a new weeding tool, inspired by the hugely successful Weed Slice. The new design builds on the appeal of this sales phenomenon, but specialises in different areas around the garden and allotment, and can tackle weeding in a wide range of surface finishes, including aggregates.

Also making their debut at the show will be three new RHS-endorsed tools: a stainless steel leaf rake with a lifetime guarantee, and two new hand cutting tools for snipping, clipping and trimming all around the garden.

There’ll also be not one but two entire new collections of tools specially created for the way people fit their love for plants into a modern lifestyle. Tapping into the way gardeners flex their green fingers in today’s smaller spaces, these ranges are set to appeal to urban gardeners as well as plant-obsessed millennials.

In terms of gifts, there’s a stunning new collection in the award-winning ‘RHS Gifts for Gardeners’ series. British Bloom is a dramatic confection of some of the best-loved and most on-trend flowers that typify British gardening style, featuring sumptuous images from the RHS Lindley Library’s archives. The collection includes new lines that have proved top sellers in other Burgon & Ball collections, including a seed packet storage tin, an RHS-endorsed pocket pruner with holster, and an RHS-endorsed snip with holster.

Extending the appeal of established best-selling ranges, there’s a selection of new indoor pots, including up-to-the-minute hanging pots. And to create a perfect gardening gift set, shoppers will be able to match the award-winning Love The Glove collection of ladies’ gardening gloves with the market-leading Kneelo® kneeler range, with the launch of a pretty new design in a choice of three colours to complement popular Kneelo® shades.

With our reputation for innovation and new product development, the Burgon & Ball stand (8E50-F51) is a must for all show visitors – and if past performance is anything to go by, there’ll be future best-sellers among them.
