Summary
We have transformed plant ordering for our customers with our mobile-friendly web portal. Drawing on the extensive horticultural knowledge across our five nursery co-op, the in-house developers designed the portal to perfectly meet the needs of plant buyers.

The mobile friendly shop enables garden retailers to view stock availability in real-time and secure plants instantly, even direct from the shop floor at the bench side. The portal provides ordering flexibility and retailers can order at a time that suits their busy schedules.
