Darlac, the garden and cutting tools experts, is to be carried in the five RHS Garden Centres across the UK (at RHS Garden Wisley, Surrey; RHS Garden Bridgewater, Salford; RHS Garden Harlow Carr, Harrogate; RHS Garden Hyde Hall, Chelmsford and RHS Garden Rosemoor, Devon), from Spring 2022.
The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) is the UK’s leading gardening charity and represents the paragon of excellence in horticulture in the UK. With 5 gardens across the UK with retail outlets attached to their visitor centres, footfall is high with over 2 million visitors being welcomed to the gardens every year.
The products in store are carefully curated by the RHS; the organisation approached Darlac to support their aim to move away from plastic products in stores. Included are the sustainable bamboo range of hand tools and Darlac’s brass irrigation accessories which will help the RHS strengthen their in-store offering. The Expert cutting range is also to be included, offering Darlac’s professional quality pruners, loppers and shears to shoppers.
Duncan Mclean, RHS Senior Plant Buyer, said: “The Darlac range of brass irrigation and bamboo hand tools is a great addition to our stores in line with our commitment to stock more sustainable alternatives. We’ve also added the Darlac Expert cutting range which offers our customers a great price alternative and makes an accessible option in store.”
Chris Owen, General Manager for Darlac, added: “Inclusion of the Darlac bamboo and brass irrigation ranges in RHS retail outlets is great news. Shoppers at the RHS gardens are a highly discerning audience and very much a part of our target demographic, so getting our product out to this audience is a really exciting development for us. The Royal Horticultural Society were particularly interested in our bamboo range of hand tools and the brass irrigation products to support their commitment to carrying more eco-friendly products across all their retail outlets. We are delighted to have been included in these high-profile retail settings.”
