Burncoose Nurseries launches mobile-friendly website

Cornwall's largest working plant nursery, Burncoose Nurseries, has launched a new mobile friendly website, letting customers purchase plants and browse the extensive site for plant care tips.

Burncoose launched its first online site in 1996. Nursery manager Andrew Mills commented: "We pride ourselves in the range of plants we offer here at Burncoose and wanted to ensure that mobile and tablet visitors can see everything visible on the full-size site.

"The launch of the optimised website opens a world of opportunity for our customers as they can now purchase when on the move, making ordering more user friendly for everyone. It also means customers can access the expert plant care tips and advice 24/7."

Julie Hosegrove from Forgecom, who developed the site, said: "It is important when developing a responsive website to put in those little touches that often get forgotten. User experience is key and we have included things like email friendly pop-up keypads for when customers enter their email address and we have turned off the auto-correct because email addresses often don't start with a capital letter and send spell checkers into a frenzy.

"We changed the size of the submit and continue buttons depending on what device is being used, and our links are big-finger touch friendly. Having worked with Burncoose for nearly 20 years we understand their business and their customers and feel this is a great step forward in the constant evolution of their website."
