Decco and Briers have signed an exclusive partnership agreement for the supply of core gloves, boots, accessories and Briers' kids range in the UK.

At Glee, Briers new range of Julie Dodsworth garden gloves, footwear, tools and gifts will accompany the launch of a new Signature range and Pantone range of garden giftware including gloves and boots, storage tins, tools, watering cans and umbrellas.

Best-selling favourites, such as the Kids range, will also be extended for Glee, and displayed in full alongside our unrivalled branded garden clothing and giftware offering."
