Amberol’s golden sticker spotters revealed

Amberol’s golden sticker spotters revealed

As Amberol’s 50th year in business, 2019 has been a significant and celebratory one for the company. And, as the year draws to an end, we are pleased to announce that almost all of our special 50th anniversary stickers have been found.

The golden stickers were specially created to commemorate our golden anniversary and placed on self-watering planters across the UK. Those who were keen-eyed enough to spot one of the golden stickers won one of Amberol’s most popular planters – the stone effect planter worth over £200 from Amberol’s heritage range of self-watering containers.

And the winners are….

Location clues were given out on social media and the winners were also announced on social media. But, in case you missed it, here are the golden sticker locations:

  • Norwich (Norfolk)
  • Handforth (Cheshire)
  • Bridge of Allan (Stirling)
  • Usk (Monmouthshire)
  • Belper (Derbyshire)
  • Sudbury (Suffolk)
  • Thirsk (North Yorkshire)
  • Huntingdon (Cambridgeshire)

That leaves just two planters to be found somewhere in Long Eaton in Derbyshire and Llandudno in North Wales. It may be that the planters have been removed for the winter so In Bloomers in these areas should maybe keep their eyes peeled for the golden stickers when spring-time planting begins.

We would like to congratulate all the golden sticker winners – and also to commend them on their excellent eyesight!

Share your planting ideas to win

There’s also another chance to win Amberol products as part of our 50th anniversary celebrations for those who submit entries for Amberol’s forthcoming Best Plant Ups guide.

MD Patience Atkinson-Gregory explains: “The In Bloom and gardening community have some great planting ideas to share. It’s such a supportive community and we thought it would be interesting to ask our customers for their ideas and advice around displays that they have created using Amberol’s self-watering planters.”

So, to commemorate 50 years in business, Amberol is collating entries from customers to create the Best Plant Ups booklet which will be based customers’ experience of planting up displays. The guide will be available free on request when published.

As a thank you for submitting their ideas, entries will be viewed by a judging panel with prizes of up to £1000 of Amberol vouchers up for grabs.

First prize = £1000 worth of Amberol products
Second prize
= £500 to spend on Amberol products
Third prize

Coronavirus Update

Together, we are facing a truly unparalleled situation. The global coronavirus pandemic is affecting all of our families, our businesses, our communities, and our way of life. During this time, I wanted to reach out and update you on how we’re approaching the situation at Amberol.

After a wet and rather grey winter, spring is finally here. As the days lengthen and get warmer (and hopefully drier), people emerge from spending much of their time indoors, eager to get out and about after the long period of winter-induced hibernation.
