Yates held its 28th Annual Media Presentation, and celebrated its 125th birthday, on July 11 at Moore Park Golf Club in Sydney.
Yates is proud to be celebrating its 125th anniversary in 2012. From the beginning, Yates has prided itself on supplying quality products, and this policy is still of paramount importance today.
Yates is a long-established Australian brand that has become a household name. This familiarity has been encouraged by the widespread popularity of the Yates Garden Guide, which was first written by Arthur Yates in 1895. During more than a century of publication, its 43 editions have become an Australian gardener’s bible.
Today, Yates is engaging successfully with another generation of gardeners through its website, its online garden club and by connection through social media.

An astonishing 49 new varieties have been added to the Yates packet seed range including:
• New Yates vegetable seeds
• New Yates herb seeds
• New Yates organic seeds
• New Yates flowers
