Crest Garden Ltd have announced today that they will be repeating their successful regional Trade Shows with Westland Horticulture in June 2018. They will showcase their Autumn ranges and launch a new concept in creative gardening gifts inspired by Imperial War Museums.

The venues and dates for the Trade Shows are:

Perth – ?Tuesday/Wednesday, June 12th/13th at Perth Racecourse

Coventry ? Monday/Tuesday, June 18th/19th at Heart of England Conference Centre

Newbury ? Thursday/Friday, June 21st/22nd at Newbury Racecourse

The timing of the Shows will enable retailers to select and order their Autumn requirements as well as Flopro watering, all available for immediate delivery to meet the anticipated summer and early Autumn demand.

One of the highlights of the event will be the unveiling of the new Gift Range developed in partnership with the Imperial War Museums. Products and packaging draw on the images of the ?Dig for Victory? campaign of WW2 when every spare piece of land was turned into allotments to help Britain become self-sufficient during the conflict. Today the renewed interest in ?Grow you own? is inspiring people of all ages to develop an interest and learn new skills by producing fresh home grown produce. The Dig for Victory collection will make ideal gifts for those with a love of gardening or history.
