Riggs said: "We (Rustic Garden) decided to attend Four Oaks for the first time since 2010. We were extremely pleased and surprised by the results, we took many more orders at the show then we anticipated, both from existing clients but especially from new customers. In addition we had many high level enquiries from quality retailers plus discussions with growers who supply major garden centres, both independent and chains. Retailers and growers found it refreshing that Rustic Garden offer leading edge on trend ranges that are different to volume suppliers. Our ability to offer bespoke products and react quickly to enquiries coupled with prompt delivery was very much acknowledged and appreciated. We will be returning to Four Oaks in 2016."
The company was also at Glee this week.
