Fuengirola, Espana (PressExposure) June 24, 2011 -- The future for garden centres is exciting and offers many dynamic opportunities in an industry that speaks volumes in terms of exterior home decorating. Innovators all around the globe will enjoy the journey.
Garden centres have always provided a pleasant morning or afternoon out, walking around the beds of beautiful garden plants, garden shrubs, bedding plants, perennial plants, or even vegetable plants. You hear yourself saying with every step that you take, oh I want to try growing that, or that or that.
Every garden centre or Nursery in the land needs supporters of their business and all over the world these businesses are trying harder to keep their supporters. There are so many places nowadays that one can purchase plants, garden bulbs, or garden seeds. Even supermarkets sell all sorts of garden plants, and this is not just true in the UK, around the world you can come across vendors selling their wares and you can be sure there will be a plant somewhere to be seen and bought.
These days any business has to target their shoppers. Gardening is the one thing that knows no bounds in terms of age, or culture and related businesses that do not understand generational marketing will have a limited future.
Reputable garden centres excel in terms of selling every type of plant imaginable and they also offer specialism, experience and service, telling the keen gardener 'this is what you should be planting at the moment', or 'this will sit nicely is this type of location'
Garden centres and nurseries need to take a step forward and distance themselves from supermarkets, or DIY outlets, who are selling increasing amounts of plants and garden equipment. In order to do this many garden centres are offering online shopping and not only that; they are providing a great service and helping users to navigate their way through the different plants and shrubs that are available.
A spokesman for Blooming Direct a horticultural business based on the beautiful floral island of Jersey said "with its warming southerly aspect and high light levels, Jersey has an unrivalled worldwide reputation for excellence and innovation in horticultural and agricultural products. We are a website offering an online boutique style garden centre and florist shopping experience. Our site is very user friendly, you can browse our products through easy-to-understand categories, when you find something that takes your fancy just click on the 'More Info' button and you will learn everything about that particular plant". He went on to say "we also have an online Blooming Direct Gardening Advice Bog, dedicated to gardening advice and tips".
Garden centres will continue to flourish over the next decade especially as consumers become increasingly 'green' and are interested in growing their own vegetables and looking after the environment. It does not take a huge plot to achieve this as 'veggies' can be planted as container plants, even as hanging basket plants.
Online shopping is now the 'norm', and the consumer can purchase just about anything online. It is easy, comfortable shopping and, more importantly, you can spend ages reading about the product before choosing. Delivered to your door, plug plants furnish you with an instant start to your garden making it easy to achieve a beautiful garden.
