The Glee New Product Showcase 2022 winners are revealed

by | Jun 30, 2022 | News | 0 comments

Fifteen fantastic new garden and pet product innovations have been confirmed as this year’s winners of the highly-coveted Glee New Product Showcase. The winning products were announced at a special award presentation organised and run by Garden Trade News at the leading garden retail event, Glee, which takes place this week (28th – 30th June, NEC Birmingham).

Over 300 entries were received across the 12 categories, with suppliers from across the garden retail sector eager to showcase the innovation that has kept product development teams occupied over the past 18 months during lockdown.

It was then the work of this year’s panel of judges – Gill Ormrod – Rosebourne Garden Centres; Mel Livingstone – Fron Goch; Andy Bunker – Alton Garden Centre; Ian Hodgson – Garden News; Nicci Gow – Retired garden centre owner; Elliott Kirby – RHS Wisley and YPHA member; Lilidh Matthews – and YPHA member, and Roger Crookes – Pughs Garden Centres – to carefully deliberate on the merits of each entry, before crowning the individual category winners and three ‘champion of champions’ awards at today’s official Glee New Product Showcase ceremony.
