Loughborough-based business Charles Bentley & Son Ltd has been chosen to produce an exclusive range of garden products for the National Trust. The range will be available in garden centres, stores and selected National Trust shops nationwide.

The dual branded collection consists of 30 products, from Brushware to tools. With many of the products manufactured in Leicestershire by Charles Bentley & Son Ltd’s 175-strong workforce, the products are all FSC certified (Forestry Stewardship Council) to provide reassurance to consumers as to the sustainable nature of the range.

Charles Bentley & Son Ltd is a Loughborough business. Formed in 1860, the company, which is still owned by the original Bentley family is celebrating 155 years in business this year. The company originally started out providing brushes for Victorian chimney sweeps and is now a multi-million pound operation, with specialisms in the equestrian, cleaning and household sector.

Managing Director, Charles Bentley said “The National Trust is the largest conservation charity in Europe, caring for some of the most special gardens and parks in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. To have been chosen to produce this range in partnership with them is a real accolade for Charles Bentley & Son Ltd. The announcement of the launch of the National Trust range is one of the most exciting in the gardening sector this spring.”

The rnage was launched with a photoshoot at Calke Abbey in Derbyshire, a National Trust property.
