GPH team up with Stonemarket for Edinburgh’s Gardening Scotland Show this June

GPH is attending the Gardening Scotland Show for the first time with a view to showcasing what they have to offer and how they could help you transform your outdoor area into the garden of your dreams.

As purveyors of good quality products, GPH champion the ‘Stonemarket’ Stone Standard and stock a huge variety of their products – and are therefore delighted to team up with Stonemarket for the 3-day Gardening Scotland event.

Gardening Scotland is the national Gardening and Outdoor Living Show and was set up in 2000 by a group of volunteers passionate about the art and science of growing plants. It’s the ideal place to catch up on the latest gardening trends, find a designer to transform your garden or ask the experts about anything and everything garden related.

Managing Director, Grant Shewan explained why it’s important for GPH to attend this event: ‘GPH is extremely passionate about offering the best quality of products for our customers. When it comes to an outdoor space, we appreciate people may be investing quite a bit of money and time into transforming their garden and we want to help customers make the best possible choices.

We are excited to be exhibiting at the Gardening Scotland Show. Given that we are based in Aberdeen people might be wondering why we are attending an event in Edinburgh. As GPH can deliver anywhere in Scotland or in fact the UK we want to bring our experience to new customers who have potentially never heard of GPH or Stonemarket.

We have invested a lot of time and money into creating very striking but more importantly very practical outdoor areas at our Inverurie, Westhill and Stonehaven branches. These allow people to see a huge variety of landscaping products in situ. By offering this service, we have helped transform hundreds probably thousands of people’s gardens.

Our stand will feature a display of natural stone, porcelain and concrete paving alongside our own bagged aggregates. We’ll also have our display trailer in attendance which will have hundreds of samples available to show customers. We’ll be running a competition at the event to for one lucky person to win a BBQ. If you are attending the show, we’d love you to visit us on Stand HG70’.

The event is due to attract 35k visitors and over 400 exhibitors. It’s where the UK’s top nurseries come every year, bringing with them a selection of beautiful and unusual flowers and shrubs. Some features of the show include:
