Marketing manager Natalie Searle said that during the first two weeks of operation, 85 per cent of all centres visited placed orders for the new ranges which were introduced to the market for the 2015 season.
Sales director Andy Abraham said: "The response from retailers has been tremendous. The mobile showroom provides the opportunity for all the staff involved to handle the products and feel the quality. Such was the demand that we extended the operation to a full six days a week."
Kent and Stowe is a range of digging, cutting and cultivation tools and Flopro is a new range of watering hoses, carts and accessories.
Meanwhile Crest Garden says it is ready to provide a reliable alternative for retailers "who may be
concerned about meeting current demand for tools and watering, at this peak time of year".
HW reported last month that following the collapse of Solus, some product areas were in short supply to garden centres.
But Crest said good stock availability is on offer from its warehouse, with next day delivery, with no minimum order, and is also available via their nominated distributor Toolbank.
In its first year of trading, Crest Garden has gained distribution throughout the UK, Ireland, and Europe as well as the US and New Zealand.
Managing director Nick Davies said: "In order to meet this demand our stock levels have been increased substantially. From day one, a fast response to our customers’ needs across all our ranges has been a high priority for Crest Garden. We also have a full product offering in our Kent & Stowe range of stainless, carbon and cutting tools."
