Briers to sponsor SAFAS at the 2013 RHS Chelsea Flower Show

It has been over 22 years since SAFAS has represented the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies (NAFAS) at the event. To celebrate its return, Briers has provided the team with its Briers Soft Stripe gloves and the Briers Pruner and Pouch gardening accessory.
SAFAS will create a garden inspired by marine biology. The Briers Soft Stripe gloves and the Briers Pruner and Pouches will be used by the SAFAS team to add extra hints of colour to its innovative creations, which include underwater cathedrals and coral reefs.

Briers Soft Stripe gloves are made from super soft cotton and are water resistant. With PVC dots on the palm, they provide excellent grip while protecting green fingers from thorns and other garden hazards. The current retail price for Briers Soft Stripe gloves is £3.99 per pair.

The Briers Pruner and Pouch has a unique pouch design to store the pruner securely and a special pocket for mobile phones, ensuring the SAFAS team members are always contactable. This accessory currently retails at £10.99.

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show attracts 157,000 green fingered enthusiasts from across the world each year. Having taken place since 1862, the event will celebrate the centenary of its tenure at the iconic Chelsea Hospital venue this year.

“We are delighted to be sponsoring such a creative and talented team. Every year the RHS Chelsea Flower Show displays some breathtaking designs. We are thrilled to support the SAFAS teams’ unique ideas,” says Briers Managing Director, Jackie Eades.

In the last three years, Briers has launched many new products including Stardust Wellies, Floral patterned gloves with matching kneelers, Boppers, High Heeled Boots and the Gruffalo® range. With a product range comprising footwear, gloves and accessories, Briers is committed to the gardening industry.

The RHS Chelsea Flower show will take place from 21 to 25 May 2013 at the Royal Hospital, Chelsea, London, SW3 4SL. For more information about the event, visit
