ZEST LAUNCHES NEW PRODUCTS AHEAD OF GLEE
Timber garden furniture, grow your own and decorative garden structure specialist, Zest has launched a selection of new products ahead of Glee 2023, reinforcing its position as a leading player in sustainable outdoor living. Highlights of Zest’s new range for 2024 can now be previewed on the Glee portal https://rb.gy/x6y5h ahead of the opportunity to see live on Zest’s stand 20D30-E31 at Glee itself.
Continuing to place strong emphasis on the garden as the perfect place to relax, entertain and feel closer to nature, the latest Zest range draws on consumer trends and builds on the success of the 2023 season’s collection with complementary concepts and themes. The company’s commitment to sustainability is also reflected in the design and build of the new products as well as in the refinement of existing best sellers to enable greener packaging and transportation solutions which assist in achieving Zest’s environmental goals.
Zest’s new 2024 range includes the Terraza Outdoor Kitchen, which complements the hugely popular, award winning, Zest Garden Bar and Two Stool Set and the Zest Pizza Oven Table, both launched to consumers this spring. The Zest Terraza Outdoor Kitchen is absolutely on trend for outdoor entertaining, and comprises a stunning collection of products which provide a sustainable, natural route to alfresco cooking - at a very affordable price!
Made of slow grown softwood sourced from responsibly managed PEFC forests, all products in the Terraza range can be purchased individually or as a set comprising two double units and a corner display unit. There is also an optional side table to extend the serving area. The double kitchen unit has two large doors to access the deep internal shelves which allow the user to store tools and cooking equipment. An additional third open sided shelf is ideal for plates, cutlery and serving utensils. The double kitchen units come with a stainless-steel top which is perfect for food preparation.
Zest is also launching the Compact Botanical Greenhouse, a high quality glazed Perspex small space greenhouse, ideal for nurturing young plants. It has a sturdy wooden frame made from slow grown softwood sourced from responsibly managed PEFC forests. It has hinged doors and an opening roof with dual height stays for optimum ventilation. It comes complete with door catches and strategically placed drainage holes in the roof frame. It is ideal for those with a balcony, patio or small city garden.
There is more in terms of stylish grow your own from Zest this year with the Tall Botanical Greenhouse. Also space-saving, this delightful product combines stunning looks with all the functionality of a greenhouse. It is made from sustainable slow grown softwood sourced from responsibly managed PEFC forests and styled to blend perfectly with the natural world. Most suited for positioning against the wall of the house or outbuilding. Fully glazed with Perspex to allow light through both roof and sides, the Zest Tall Botancial Greenhouse boasts two fully adjustable roof panels allowing for optimal temperature control for all types of plants with securing latches for confidence and safety. It has removable shelves which can also be reconfigured to a half-width to allow for taller plants as required and its classic greenhouse look combined with its superb practicality makes it an outstanding winner for a GYO enthusiast.
The Zest Eco Hive Composter is also perfect for today’s environmentally conscious gardener. Producing your own compost is now a massive and environmentally beneficial garden trend, but compost bins can be unattractive even if useful and desirable. Zest’s new Eco Hive Composter not only has some super functional advantages, but it is also an attractive addition to any garden. Shaped like a traditional beehive and made from sustainable slow grown softwood sourced from responsibly managed PEFC forests, it has a large 405 litre capacity and an open base which helps to produce internal heat and make quality compost faster. The lid opens both sides and folds back on itself for ease of removal in order to churn the compost. The lower hatch allows gardeners to harvest the compost with ease. Narrow gaps in the side panels allows air to circulate in the composter whilst keeping the rain out. The angled ‘cant cut’ timber boards keeps the waste inside hidden and out of sight as well as having a more modern aesthetic and aids ventilation. The timber lid and side panels retain heat, and helps manage moisture content, and the open base allows micro-organisms, worms, and slugs from the ground to get into the waste heap and help to break it down to make top quality compost.
For consumers who just want to relax in their gardens, the new Zest Stirling Arbour is perfect. A sanctuary in which to enjoy being close to nature, this covered seating arbour offers ample space for four people to sit and enjoy dining, relaxation, or coffee and conversation. Including a spacious fitted table, delightful trellis panels and comfortable angled seats, the Zest Stirling Arbour is suitable for any social event. Designed to be lighter and smaller, it fits into any garden and enables more sustainable transportation – as well as a very competitive price point.
Zest is also showing some clever and innovative new seating products as well as new and redesigned versions of existing best sellers such as the Zest 1 and 2 metre Veg Beds, collectively adding up to the widest range of eco-friendly outdoor living products on the market. A one-stop shop for innovation, style, comfort and sustainability which covers garden entertaining, grow your own, relaxation and mindfulness.
Head of Commercial Development, Simon Davison commented, “We’re thrilled to be returning to Glee with innovative new products to show our garden centre stockists and online retailers – and it’s great to give everyone a preview.
