Pastel colours in for Mother's Day in garden centres

Seed, bulb and GYO gift pack supplier G Plants say the interiors trend for pastels will come into its own via garden centre sales this Mother's Day (6 March).

The company has launched 22 new products that make the most of this colour trend including Mini Greenhouse Seed Starter Kits, Rattan Flower Hanging Baskets, Kitchen Herb Pots, Sweet Pea Trellis Grow Sets, Premium Coloured Barrel and Handbag Planters, and Bulb Gift Bags.

Director of G Plants Alex Reihl said: "Trends like this are a fantastic opportunity to not only increase profits during the beginning of the garden retail season, but also to show your customers you are relevant, up-to-date and stocking the kind of products they're looking for."

G Plants' ‘Indoor Flavours’ is a particular seasonal gift range that has been bolstered for 2016 to reflect the latest colour trend.  Available in outers of 10 and priced at £4.99 RRP, the new 'Sweet Scented' 3-in-1 pack is an easily merchandised gift product, with packaging displaying inspiring imagery of the finished product.   Each gift set includes three pastel growing pots, Lavender, Spearmint and Rosemary herb seed sachets.
