Nursery News - January 2016

Wishing all our wonderful customers a very Happy New Year and a happy, healthy and plant filled 2016!

2015 highlights
2015 was a fantastic year for Plants4Presents and our busiest year yet. We had a great time out on the road at various events and shows up and down the country and we were delighted to receive recognition not just from the customers who use our service but from the powers that be in horticulture and our local business community.


We were delighted with our Silver-Gilt Medal for our 'Grow Your Own Tea' display at Hampton Court and also to be awarded 'Highly Commended' in the 'Small Business of the Year' category at the Sussex Business Awards2015

We've seen both more customers finding us via horticultural shows and events and more customers returning for gifts year after year, meaning 2015 was a record breaker for us. We saw record numbers of plants bought for Mother's Day and for Christmas and more than 20,000 plants delivered to homes up and down the country in 2015.

We've come along way since our humble beginnings in 2004 and as we have grown our team has too. We now have a cracking team of nursery and customer service staff and we're really looking forward to 2016.

We've got lots of plans for new plant gifts and improvements to the website and we'll be out on the road again this year at some of our favourite horticultural shows.
