Online plant retailer Plantify ceases trading

Online plant retailer Plantify says a short-notice packing area move has caused it to close. was founded in 2011 by ex-computer games developer and gardening enthusiast, Peter Laughton.

The Reading-based company sourced a range of 3,000+ plants from British nurseries. It employed 12 staff and moved to new premises in 2015.

On its website Plantify said: "As you may be aware we have struggled to meet our normal customer service standards following the short notice move of our packing area.

"Despite the best efforts of our small team over the last few weeks, we are simply unable to recover from this devastating move fast enough.

"We have thus made the decision to stop trading.

"If you have an order outstanding, please refer to your credit card company or PayPal who will arrange a refund."
