David Yardley commented: “It was a pleasure to attend our recent plant show at Aintree Racecourse and see all of the wonderful plants that will be coming to centres soon. We also invited along some of the key sundries suppliers who provide us with plant-related products and it was wonderful to see some new products and real innovation in this category.

“There were a number of awards presented at the evening dinner and it was great to be able to hand over this year’s Supplier Innovation award to Toby from RocketGro. Ever since I first met with Toby and his business partner, Tim, at Glee in 2021, I have been impressed by their passion and professionalism in developing what is a genuine innovation in the industry, and becoming one of our key suppliers in such a short period of time.”

Managing Director, Toby Thomas said: “Building a relationship with David Yardley and the management team at Klondyke has been a cornerstone of the development of RocketGro as a business and as a brand. I feel that our relationship is a true partnership and goes way beyond being just another supplier. Working hand in hand with Mary and Andy at Klondyke to build our brand presence in the stores has helped us grow stronger every year.

“Klondyke and RocketGro share the same values and both sides have invested significant time into genuinely understanding each other’s business to enable the relationship to really thrive. We are thrilled to have been given the Supplier Innovation award and thank Klondyke for recognising our significant progress and contribution to the industry in this way.
