Awards winners announced at Glee

UK planter supplier The Ceramic Gift Company Limited and Dutch plant exporter Green Room have won Glee Nursery's 'profitable plants' merchandising competition at the garden retail and leisure show.

The new Floramedia sponsored ‘profitable plants' showpiece features eight display booths transformed by participating Glee Nursery exhibitors into plant display ‘masterclasses'.  
After reviewing the eight showpieces, judges Carol Paris of Garden & Leisure Group, Caroline Palmer of Palmers Garden Centre and Dougal Philip of New Hopetoun Gardens selected the joint entry by The Ceramic Gift Company and Green Room as the stand-out winner. 

Their display featured an exotic indoor plants, a stylish room set and inspiring point of sale materials.

Judge Dougal Philip said the display was "head and shoulders above" the other entries.  "In a small space, it stopped and inspired, with lots of theatre.   The idea was practical enough to be implemented by garden centres and importantly, there was a very clear benefit message of how to use plants to ‘Brighten your Home'."
