Forest Garden opens garden timber trade showroom

Published:  15 June, 2015

Forest Garden has opened what it says is the largest indoor product display in the UK garden and landscape sector in Worcestershire.

The 5,000 sq ft showroom, on the same site as the garden product manufacturer’s head office, is open to invited trade customers and features timber fencing, sheds, summerhouses, greenhouses, arbours, decking, planters and furniture.

The opening of the new site follows the announcement of additional sawmill capacity, expanded timber treatment facilities, and extra manufacturing resources at its Worcestershire sites in 2014, the first development projects after Forest Garden’s purchase of M&M Timber in 2013.

In December the company opened a 19,500 sq ft group head office near its Hartlebury locations.

Guy Grainger, group chief executive of Forest Garden, said: “This new showroom now offers customers the chance to see our ranges side by side, as well as previewing some of our prototype ideas – with the chance to comment on them before launch.”
