OCTOBER 2015 -
(Retailers & Landscapers Only - Strictly NO Public)
OCTOBER - Open Days and JANUARY - Market Morning Brunch
We host two events yearly at Bristle Cone Nursery: An Open day in October where we invite Retailers, Landscapers and the press to showcase our product. This is also our main event for the year as it is in the peak of Summer with a few selected exhibiters also displaying their stock.
During January each year we host the Skeerpoort Market Day where we invite other Nurseries and allied trade related to gardening to market their product. This start off the year and it is usually just a relaxed fun day for retailers to stock up after the December holiday brake. 2014 brought something different. We hosted a Market Morning Brunch @ Bristle Cone where we invited retailers and landscapers to come out and enjoy a relaxed day and a perfect networking opportunity, this brought great success and we will continue this in 2015.
On both occasions our garden is open for viewing to retailers and landscapers as there are a lot of new plants on trail as well as old time favourites, exotic and rare plants. It is also an ideal opportunity to see fully grown plants used in different combinations in the garden.
This events are for retailers and landscapers only. Strictly NO Public.
Other Events We Take Part In:
SANA (South African Nursery Association) host two Trade Fairs yearly, one in March and the bigger Trade Fair in August. Here we exhibit our plants that are available, for season and ready for sale. We also take part in other gardening shows where we supply plants to Lifestyle, Safari Garden Centre, Garden World and Gardenex Shows; here we usually work with Landscapers that do the design. Some of the new releases have been exhibited at the Chelsea and Hampton court Shows in the United Kingdom as well as in displays and collections of the Royal Horticultural Societies Garden & Nursery in Wisley in the UK.
