Adam Gregg M.D “When we were presented with the opportunity to showcase one of the most exciting new products The Chesney's HEAT range to hit your gardens this year we jumped at the chance to work with the festival as the creators made it so easy to work out the perfect pitch! That combined with James Martin not only endorsing the product but being at the event it was a complete no brainer!'
