Davies said: "Our research shows that garden centres are looking for relaible products that offer great value for money but are not compromised on quality just to hit unrealistic price points.

"Many retailers question the wisdom of selling a cost-reduced item for £4.99 when they can sell a reliable, fit-for-purpose product for £7.99."

Crest's 12 sales agents include Spencer Goodall, Andy Roe, All Your Need, RK Agencies, ARC Southern, Jon Davis and Workforce Agencies, led by sales director Andy Abraham.
