The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has announced its official endorsement of the entire range of products from The Posh Shed Company. This includes the company’s signature range of bespoke sheds and back door stores.
An RHS endorsement is a significant addition to the successful RHS licensing campaign, bringing the name and support of the UK’s best-known gardening charity to an existing product line. The RHS only endorses what it believes to be the very best products in any one product category. To receive an endorsement a potential partner is carefully considered, products are checked for quality and, where possible, a site visit is conducted.
The endorsement comes at a time of continued growth for The Posh Shed Company, which has been marked by the restructuring of its product offering. Customers now have three options for just how posh they’d like their shed to be: Posh, Very Posh or Unbelievably Posh. This enhanced offering brings Posh Sheds’ reputation for quality, function and elegant design to more affordable as well as premium products, the company says. The new options were launched at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in July.
The Posh Shed Company has also unveiled a new and exclusive range of small storage solutions with its new Back-Door Stores, which are an extensive range of units designed for storage in small spaces. These items in particular, which offer a compact but functional and elegant area for gardeners to store tools, are an encouragement to everyone to grow, no matter how big or small their space is, that fits perfectly with the new RHS brand message: “Inspiring everyone to grow.”
All Posh Shed Company products are hand-made by skilled craftspeople in Herefordshire, and are made to order to meet the exact requirements of each customer.
The Posh Shed Company managing director Richard Frost commented: “We, like the RHS, believe that gardening enriches lives and we express that through our products, which, we feel, both support gardening and enhance gardens. We’re thrilled therefore to receive the endorsement of the UK’s best-loved gardening charity.”
RHS licensing manager Cathy Snow added: “It’s important to the RHS that it has within its licensing programme a number of RHS endorsements for British-based companies that offer some of the best hand-built products available, among them Whichford Pottery (terracotta flowerpots), Sitting Spiritually (bespoke garden swing seats and benches) and now Posh Sheds. Supporting craftsmanship and keeping traditional skills alive is important to the organisation as well as working with local, UK-based businesses.”
