For many years, 2 or 3 litre plants have become the boring, industry tradition.
At the South West Landscape Centre, we intend to change this tradition and show, that larger plants are actually better value for money for Landscapers and Garden Designers.
With 2-3 litre Shrubs, say costing £3.50-£4.50 each, Trade. What you get is something normally Tunnel grown, covered in fleece over the Winter, so safe for planting out in a domestic garden around April?
At the SWLC, all of our 5 litre Shrubs are grown outside, on what is a very windy site! So our Landscape & Garden Design customers have a tough, top quality plant in a 5 litre pot, costing £4.15.
Indeed with Herbaceous, Landscapers and Designers tend to plant 3 x 2 litre for impact. So for example 3 x 2 litre Herbaceous at £2.70 each is £8.10. Why? When you can achieve the same impact with one 5 litre Herbaceous costing only £4.15.
So with 5 litre plants, the planting costs are less, per square metre, when compared against 2-3 litre!
Losses also raise an issue.
2-3 litre plants can fail. 5 litre plants are big enough to survive most things.
We support Landscapers and Garden Designers.
Therefore, at the SWLC, we guarantee ALL of our own 5 litre Shrubs and above, for 12 months after sale. If our plant fails, due to it being a bad or sub-standard plant, then we will replace it, free of charge.
Not many Wholesale Nurseries do this for Landscapers & Garden Designers.
In fact, to our knowledge, the SWLC is the only Wholesale Nursery offer this level of support to Landscapers and Garden Designers.
It is nice to be ahead of the game.
This is unique customer service offered by the SWLC.
From Tuesday 21st February, you can all view our customer commitment, on our new website, www.southwestlandscapecentre.co.uk
