The Garden Press Event

Each February we head to the Barbican in London for the Garden Press Event.

It’s a great show and we strongly recommend it to our clients each year, particularly to those launching new products as it’s a great way to get the news out to key journalists in one day!

This year we’ve decided to change things!

We’re expecting this year’s exhibition to be the best yet, and here’s why. This year we have chosen to exhibit on one stand as Paskett PR, instead of various stands on behalf of all our clients. This means journalists only have one port of call to see all our clients in one place!

We’ll be on stand G69/70 where we’ll be looking after

  • Allett lawnmowers
  • BASF’s beneficial nematodes
  • The largest range of gardening products to be launched in recent times, Cobra
  • ‘Pure Power’ from Cub Cadet
  • The range of 56volt lithium-ion products from EGO Power+
  • ‘Glasshouses of Distinction’ from Griffin Glasshouses
  • The only fully automatic solar-powered watering system in Europe, from Irrigatia
  • The latest resin based outdoor storage solutions from Keter
  • Beautiful, bespoke shed and accessories from the Posh Shed Company
  • World renowned gardening tool specialist, Wilkinson Sword
  • Creators of the multi-change system, which helps you garden without the backache, WOLF-Garten
  • Providers of exclusive garden tours around the world, Worldwide Garden Tours

We’ll also be giving visitors to the stand a chance to win a whole host of prizes from our clients in the free prize draw.

It’s shaping up to be a great day – we’ll let you know how it went afterwards!


New year, new projects!

Happy new year!

2016 is already off to a busy start at Paskett PR. We rounded off 2015 by making sure pr plans were ready to go as soon as we came back in January so now it’s all go, go, go with activity!


As the UK’s largest specialist gardening pr agency we like to keep abreast of all things gardening so throughout January we’ve been out and about visiting National Trust properties.

We kicked off the new year with a trip down the road to Calke Abbey where we were treated to our own private tour of the gardens from the head gardener. It was a fascinating trip and we were really privileged to have such “behind the scenes” access.

One of the most interesting things to learn was about all the work that goes into keeping Calke Abbey looking deliberately in decline. The property is often referred to as “the house that time forgot” and we got to find out exactly why. When the National Trust took over Calke Abbey it was decided to keep it in the state in which it was found, and we learnt that a lot of work has to go in to keeping it at that level!

Perhaps one of the most interesting parts of our trip was seeing the original gardener’s office and the old machinery that is still stored in there – it was interesting to see the old fashioned predecessor models that paved the way for our lawnmower clients!


We’ve got more visits with other National Trust properties lined up over the next few months and we’ve got high hopes for more private tours! We’ll keep you posted…
