Bosmere announce garden centre champagne winners

The nine winners of the champagne draw held on the Bosmere stand at Glee 2011 included garden centre buyers from throughout the UK.

The buyers from centres spreading from Sidmouth and Paignton in the south to Berwick on Tweed and Donaghadee in Ireland visited the Bosmere stand to view over 130 new products, four new ranges and 24 new dump bin promotions, all launched at this year’s show.

Bosmere’s chief executive Tony Dedman said: "Bosmere has exhibited at Glee for the past 32 years and the show has been an unqualified success for us again this year.  We received orders for products across our many ranges and expect to capitalise on the huge interest our products generated among buyers from UK and overseas retailers, wholesalers and mail order companies."

The daily draw winners were:

Rachel Boxall of Reigate Garden Centre; David Poulton of Wards Nurseries & Garden Centre; Ian Barlow of Sidmouth Garden Centre; Ian Feltham of Blue Diamond Group; Lynda Murray of Berwick Garden Centre; Adrian Cornelissen of Burleydam Garden Centre; Violet Gamble of Donaghadee Garden Centre; Steven Clow of Lyndhurst Garden Centre; and James Hollingsworth of Suttons Consumer Products.
