Merry Christmas from all at Amberol

I’m sure like us at Amberol, you are wondering where the last 12 months have gone! As usual, we have had a busy year working with customers across the UK, Ireland, Europe – and even further beyond. We are often amazed by the hard work and dedication that we see from the people that we meet – from volunteers in Britain in Bloom, to local authority groundstaff. We aim to make a visible difference to communities – but it is really our customers who achieve that.

Wherever you are and whatever you do, we hope that you have had a successful and happy 2016. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your custom and support. We hope to continue working with you in 2017 and wish you all the best for a great New Year.

And remember – it’s never too early to get planting!
