Isn’t it fantastic to see this new TV programme which is all about British plants and gardening, becoming the most talked about gardening programme for sometime. What’s more we are delighted that several of our nursery members have been featured in the series, and several more were approached but didn’t make the final cut. This is one of the ways our extensive media network helps our members.
All nurseries should be set to benefit from this new resurgence of interest in gardening and we believe that gardening and nurseries are set for a fabulous year in 2014.
However there is a note of caution – it will depend to some extent on the weather! As we have seen over the last month with torrential rain, floods and gale force winds there are something’s that we have no control over. So whilst this is a positive message, and we do believe there is a new interest in supporting British growers from the feedback we receive when speaking to gardeners and designers across the country, spare a thought for some of our nurseries who are picking up the pieces after storm damage.
So we urge all gardeners everywhere to start your New Year with a promise to help us make British independent nurseries the number one place for plants again and buy plants from our members who have been recommended by gardeners and handpicked by us.
