Burgon & Ball, the UK?s longest-established designer and manufacturer of garden tools and accessories, will be at this year?s GLEE exhibition at Birmingham?s NEC to launch its biggest-ever collection of new products.

With a reputation for innovation and new product development, Burgon & Ball?s stand (19C26-E27) is a must for all show visitors, with more than 70 innovative new products being unveiled at the show ? and if past performance is anything to go by, there?ll be future best-sellers on show!

In the spotlight will be a stunning new range of stylish indoor plant pots, tapping into the trend for bringing the outdoors in, for a lush, jungly look. Houseplants are making style headlines, and with these pots available in a choice of colours, finishes and sizes, there?s the perfect pot to complement every room. And to make life easy, the pots have been sized to fit the most popular sizes of houseplants sold in garden centres, presenting plenty of opportunity for add-on sales.

The range includes unique hanging pots with a cool, contemporary feel, making it easy to get the latest look. There are also glazed pots in a range of gorgeous colours and styles, with beautiful textured designs and an on-trend artisan appearance. The terracotta pots have a cleverly ?weathered? effect, to bring a touch of country house style. Also in the range are quirky cactus vases; just the thing to add character to a unique indoor display.

It will also be the first GLEE outing for the vibrant Brie Harrison for Burgon & Ball collection, an exciting new range of gifts for home and garden. Brie?s on-trend botanical designs feature Swiss cheese plants, cacti and hanging plants, and are chic, contemporary ? and effortlessly stylish. The collection of gardening gifts includes a secateur and holster gift set; a trowel, snips and plant label gift set; a comfortable kneeler; gardening gloves; and twine in a tin. There?s also plenty for people who simply love gorgeous design around the home: an indoor watering can, a peg bag, a pencil case, a drinks tray, a storage tin, and a gorgeous umbrella to spread a little sunshine on rainy days.

In terms of tools, there?ll be an ingenious new idea for weeding on show. This clever new design takes the backache out of tackling those unwanted weeds in lawns, and is addictively satisfying to use ? weeds watch out!

Autumn 2017 also sees a complete re-launch of the extremely popular Enamelwares collection, bringing it right up to date in terms of colours, materials and design, and introducing natural elements with FSC beech lids and leather handles. The Enamelwares collection sells extremely well both for self-purchase as well as for gifting, and the new designs cover a range of key price points. With products for both home and garden, the new arrivals combine contemporary design with the classic appeal of a tough, hardwearing finish. There?s something here for everyone!

Visitors to the Burgon & Ball stand will be able to discover affordable and eye-catching additions in the manufacturer?s stylish collaboration with designer Sophie Conran, including adorable new bird care products. The Sophie Conran collection of gorgeous garden tools and accessories has been hugely popular since its launch, and enjoys a near-cult following among keen female gardeners. New items both for home and for garden will be launched at GLEE, allowing Sophie aficionadas to enjoy a little Conran style indoors and out.

Visit Burgon & Ball at GLEE on Stand 19C26-E27 to see the full range of exciting new products on offer from this respected name in the gardening world.
