RETAILING IDEAS

Heavenly burger for vegan customers At Whitehall Lacock we found the most delicious ‘Moving Mountains Plant Based Burger’ in the Lavender Lodge Restaurant. Top marks for taste and top marks for emphasising the plant-based items on the menu.

Getting that entrance statement right Nick Oliver at St Johns Ashford leaves customers in no doubt that the centre has different owners – they bought the centre from Wyevale last year – and at the same time underlines their planty background.

Selling pots of blueberries At Plymouth Garden Centre they are making the most of every plant and pot sales opportunity, even with popular blueberry plants.

Greetings cards drive sales all year round Taking great care on which greetings cards to stock is a big priority for Plymouth Garden Centre, who told GTN they sell over 65,000 cards a year.

Easy watering, indoors and outdoors Perrywood have been making the most of aspiring houseplant owners wanting to ensure the watering of their precious plants is as easy as possible. Using in-store sales demos and Instagram videos they are driving good sales of the Elho Easy Watering pot inserts (pictured right). Out in the planteria at In-Excess Ringwood they are able to maintain high plant quality really easily on a sloping site by building bespoke plant benches with plastic watering trays fitted in to avoid the need to water from above for most of their stock. According to their David Austin sales rep they have the best kept display in the area as a result.
