Jackson said he saw buyers from Homebase and Blue Diamond as well as existing clients. His company specialises in production and supply of elite unrooted cuttings of many basket, bedding and pot plant varieties offered to young-plant growers and wholesale nurserymen on a sub-licensee basis.
"I went expecting a lot but after Sunday I thought there was a lot of standing around," said Jackson. "But on reflection it was a useful few days. Improving visitor flow is one thing they need to do. We'd like to carry on supporting bringing plants back to Glee."
The firm won "highly commended" at the Glee new product awards with Petunia Happy Magic Charcoal, bred by Breier Genetics at Cohen Propagation Nurseries.
Jackson said he has no regrets about pulling out of growing in Guernsey in 2013 to move production to Israel and produce higher counts.
After a "steady" 2014, that "started well then tailed off", he said without the speculative production there used to be, everyone plans better. There will be new novelty petunias and introductions form Israel, Kerley and Moerheim for 2015, he added.
