With a hall brimming with quality plants and awash with colour, the Klondyke Group’s? annual Plant Show took place on 22rd February 2018.? Held at the Hallmark Hotel close to Wilmslow Garden Centre over 20 suppliers exhibited at the show.

The show, which was attended by the Group?s 22 Plant and Garden Centre Managers and Horticultural Buying Team, gave the perfect opportunity to plan and select stock for the 2018 season by bringing them together with many of the best?from the UK plant supply chain.

Jon Wilks of Jon Wilks Associates, led a very interactive and highly motivational session on employee engagement, looking at how a shared sense of energy, commitment and purpose leads onto excellent customer service and experience.

The show also saw the launch of Klondyke?s year of ?Garden Festivals? marketing campaign which launches in May with their Patio Perfect event.

Klondyke?s Head of Buying Andy Smith organised the show and commented ?Our 2018 event has showcased our ranges to our Plant Managers and set the scene for the season. I would like to thank all of our suppliers who attended and wish them all a great 2018 season?.

During the show, Wyevale Nurseries were presented with the Klondyke Group?s award for Supplier of the Year 2017.

Adam Dunnett, Sales and Marketing Director at Wyevale Nurseries received the award and commented ?We were delighted to be awarded the Plant Supplier of the Year 2017 Award at the recent Klondyke show. In our first three years of supplying the group we have thoroughly enjoyed working with the centres and head office team. It’s always great to see plants taking centre stage in a retailer’s offering. We are looking forward to continuing to build an even stronger relationship going forward?
