by | Jan 31, 2017 | News | 0 comments


The New Year has brought the opportunity of expanding the sales team at G Plants. Paul Egan will be working in the north of England, focusing on Garden Centre and gift store sales. Paul has 14 years experience in the industry, initially selling large garden decoration such as garden water-features, and introducing garden furniture and gas barbecues in the last few years. Now Paul is hoping to expand his range of products to include gardening gifts from BEES? Seeds.

Paul said: ?I have been a sales agent since 2003, initially selling garden water-features for several clients, adding garden furniture and gas barbecues to my portfolio in recent years. The garden trade industry has changed over the past few years with giftware coming to the fore. I now sell a broader range of products that appeal to todays market and look forward to being a part of the BEES sales team.?

Director Alex Reihl said: ?Paul has been recruited especially to focus on our garden centre and gift store sales of our new brand: BEES? Seeds and Gifts. This range has been developed to target the garden centre and gift market, so you will not find this range in any discount stores, which is really exciting for us.?

BEES? seeds is the company’s?latest brand of gardening gifts, which was launched at Glee, with a new consumer website launching in March 2017. The range includes unique style ?gift? boxes for seeds and complete growing gifts, ideal for any budding gardener and perfect for Mother?s day lines.

Paul Egan will be joining the sales team as an agent, alongside Nigel Clarke who is focusing on garden centres and gift stores in the south of England.
