Managing director, Richard McKenna said this year's new trade price catalogue would feature more phormiums, cordylines and imported specimens sold in 2015, with 10-20 litre stock and bigger ticket multistems and olives resurging as homeowners spent more on their houses rather than saved.
He said he was notifying "everything" to Defra and spending one or two days a week rather than the previous one or two days a month on imports paperwork.
McKenna added: "My concern is not what we’re doing but more if Xylella gets out somewhere and we’re in the 10km exclusion zone. We all have responsibility to stop it."
He added that he hopes for an exciting year: "2015 was good, and if this year is like last year we’ll be happy."
Provender has two new sales staff, two new apprentices and more stock available.
He said more building and development customers and more professional landscapers were visiting the Kent nursery.
Some 250 allotmenteers are expected for an open day on 27 February.
