Get set to Grow-Your-Own this year with Forest Garden

As the 2010 growing season gets underway, the UK’s leading garden timber manufacturer, Forest Garden, is offering a unique portfolio of Grow-Your-Own products to help retailers and gardeners alike take advantage of the continued interest in Grow-Your-Own.


From sowing to eating, Forest Garden’s GYO portfolio offers a versatile range of cleverly designed products that can be used either individually by the hobbyist or amateur gardener, or together for the most comprehensive and expert approach to growing delicious home grown produce in the garden. 

Traditionally styled, and featuring products to suit all needs and budgets, every item in the Forest Garden Grow-Your-Own range offers peace of mind thanks to the use of FSC certified timber.  All of the products also come with Forest Garden’s 15 year guarantee against rot, designed to maintain the long lifespan of the wood.

John Gomersall, sales and marketing director at Forest Garden, said: “Forest Garden already has a great reputation for creating both core and decorative garden timber products.  However this year we have used our expertise to create a stunning range of Grow-Your-Own products to maximise the continued interest in GYO in the UK.  Our broad product range means that the consumer can pick and chose those items that meet their needs, as well as offering retailers the opportunity to maximise sales with pick up ranges and complimentary product groups.”

Forest Garden’s GYO product range includes:

Mini greenhouse
