Nursery group reworks buyer links with online presence

The Woking Nurseries group has relaunched its website with a new "one-click" stock enquiry capability.

The 17 nurseries have put their focus into the website following the closure of the Woking Show last year.

The stock enquiry feature means that retailers, growers, landscapers, garden designers and specifiers can make a single search on availability that will be sent to all the nurseries offering the plants.

Some of the nurseries also have links to their availability lists and catalogues. Twitter and Facebook facilities are available and the site includes news items as a way of keeping in touch with buyers.

"Buyers can either make an enquiry that will go to each nursery or go direct to the individual nurseries," said Woking Nurseries committee chairman Colin Woodlark.

"It will help us to promote the nurseries in the area and keep smaller growers in the framework. Linking up transport across the group is something else we'd like to explore." He added that in the future more nurseries in the area might be allowed to join.

Group members are Daydawn Nurseries, Dingley Dell Nurseries, W Godfrey & Sons, Hagthorne Nurseries, Hookley Herbaceous, Jacksons of Chobham, John Hall Plants, CGJ Mathias & Son, Millais Nurseries, North Hill Nurseries, Ockley Court Nursery, P Davis Nurseries, Pepperpot Nursery, Plants Limited, Redleaf Nursery, Stafford Lake Nursery and Woodlark Nurseries.
