GIMA Awards 2021

DECORATIVE POTS & PLANTERS Winner: Woodlodge Products - Bee Kind Honeycomb and Bumbee Pots As concern escalates over pollinator decline and gardeners seek to make wildlife-friendly havens, Honeycomb and Bumbee were added to the Bee Kind range to draw attention to the plight of much-loved but endangered insects. Highly giftable, the range is the perfect container for any nature lover. The judges said:“The Bee Kind range has been one of this year’s best sellers and, at the same time, has supported the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, which is fabulous!” Finalists: Woodlodge Products - Bee Wall Teapot, Burgon & Ball Ltd - Burgon & Ball Malibu indoor plant pots, Woodlodge Products - Kensington Redstone Range

GARDEN CLOTHING & GIFTS Winner: Richard Jacksons Garden Plantsmith Gift Boxes You can buy beautifully packaged scented candles and beauty kits, but gardening gift kits have always tended to be practical and not particularly attractive. Plantsmith wants to change that with their houseplant care gift boxes. Designed to appeal as a gift for all houseplant lovers, especially the more style-conscious gardeners. The judges said: “The ideal gift for any houseplant lover.” Finalists: Smart Garden Products Ltd - Bee’s Collection, Burgon & Ball Ltd - RHS Gifts for Gardeners ‘British Meadow’ gardening gift collection, Woodlodge Products - Honey & Wild Bee Spiral Mobile
