The British Plant Nursery Guide website will promote its specialist nursery members at Hampton Court Flower Show next week with a Vintage England themed display built around two classic cars; a Morris Traveller and a Morris Pick up Truck.
Pollock said: "I am working with several other nurseries now to become members so we are beginning to gain momentum and are delighted with the support that we have received from the public and other organisations.
"We are just developing the new section of Jolly Jaunts, which will include hotels, restaurants and places of interest. The Jolly Jaunts is the area that is set to take off and really get us noticed across a much broader market."
The website is designed to promote quality British nurseries to the general public and keen amateur gardeners, offering each nursery a dedicated profile page.
A free prize draw will be held to mark the launch of the new ‘Jolly Jaunts’ feature, offering the chance to win a a break in the Cotswolds a night at the Three Ways House Hotel, Mickleton, home of the Pudding Club, and a days hire of a rare 1957 Morris Traveller from Great Escapes Classic Car Hire. Nursery member Charles Ellis has offered a free plant to complete the prize.
Pollock added: "The Morris Traveller car is the mascot for ‘Jolly Jaunts’, which are days out with a suggested itinerary and includes places to stay and eat and of course a visit to a nursery. We want to maximise the beautiful location of many nurseries and to create a nice day out for all the family to enjoy."
