Garden Centre Fresh launches website and Dutch open day

Garden Centre Fresh is to launch a website update in January 2014, and to coincide, is holding an open day in Holland for UK garden centres to view its spring/summer 2014 range

The Devon based supplier of mainly Dutch imported plants into UK garden centres will launch an interactive website, in time for garden centres to use from January 2014.

Managing director Paul Moors said: "It’s a giant step forward from our old website and has many market leading features built into it...There are some fabulous features that we have built into the new web shop, and it will be very interactive, graphic led and user friendly.

"If we can pull it off in time we plan to incorporate touch screen technology to enable easy web ordering on the move."

There will be a facility that will enable customers to design their own colour labels including logos.

Garden Centre Fresh is also holding an open day in Holland for buyers from UK garden centres that would like to not only preview the website, but also view 130 trolleys of indoor and outdoor plants.

Moors said: "It’s a great way to get both existing customers and new into one place outside of the UK show environment, and to present in a timely way a couple of exclusives that will not be available through any other UK supplier."
