GroMat and GroBox from Mr Fothergill's

Mr Fothergill’s GroBox has scooped first prize in the Plants Seeds and Bulbs category at a prestigious garden awards ceremony. Its Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) seed range was also a finalist in the category. The Garden Industry Manufacturers’ Association (GIMA) Awards 2015 were presented on 16 July 2015. Accepting the award on behalf of the Suffolk seedsman, Mr Fothergill’s joint-managing director David Carey said he was delighted the company had won.

“This prestigious award vindicates our decision to bring innovative new products to the seed market,” commented David. “We are continually looking for different ways to appeal to the different types of seed buyers, from beginners and novices to keen gardening enthusiasts.

“GroBox is one of a group of products we have launched under the ‘Garden Time’ banner aimed at new or inexperienced gardeners, including children, to encourage growing from seed. On the other hand, our RSPB seed range is aimed more at the established gardener, but focuses on gardening for the benefit of wildlife, particularly birds, bees, butterflies and other pollinators. It’s great to receive recognition for what we are doing”.
