Helping the Industry Get Back on Its Feet

The entire horticulture industry is facing enormous challenges at the moment, with no clear end in sight. Governments aren’t yet able to forecast their exit strategies from the pandemic at a national level, let alone offer industry-specific guarantees or advice.

With garden centres closed, the industry faces an uncertain period of enforced hibernation, with stock lying dormant and bills largely left unpaid. 

The key to recovery is for consumers to be able to spend with garden centres again. Some have managed to start taking modest volumes of orders for local delivery by email, facebook and over the phone. 

Consumer demand has been overwhelming, which isn’t surprising at this time of year. What most retailers are finding is that the demand quickly outstrips their capacity to fulfil it. 

The issues are mostly down to inefficiency and disorganisation. Companies who aren’t used to trading in this new way simply don’t have the processes in place or the experience to make it work.

That’s where we come in to help you.

GrowNation are offering completely free to set up e-commerce stores to garden centres across the UK. We’re helping them add products, take payments and organise orders, customers and deliveries in a much more efficient way than they’ve been able to on their own.

With our tools, garden centres can process much greater volumes, increase cashflow and ultimately get back to paying suppliers what they’re owed, which can’t come soon enough for everyone’s sake.

Ultimately, we’ll be promoting the GrowNation platform direct to consumers as a way to find and buy from garden centres across the UK. Putting the promotional clout of all participating garden centres together behind the platform will allow us to achieve much greater impact in a shorter time.

How You Can Help, and Help Yourself

By partnering with GrowNation, you can help all your existing garden retail customers to begin selling your products again right away.

Simply provide us with an electronic copy of your stock list, including product names, suggested retail prices, descriptions and images and we’ll add them to our platform right away.

When your products have been set up, all you need to do is to invite your retailers to sign up to the platform and choose which of your products to list on their own individual web shops. 

Once added, they’ll be free to make any adjustments they like to product information and prices and even add their current and minimum stock volumes to ensure they know when to re-order with you.

The easier we work together to make this for retailers, the quicker everyone can get back to business.

After Lockdown

We’re all looking forward to things getting back to normal, but we expect there will be a transition period before that happens. That’s where Click & Collect comes in.

Our Click & Collect feature will allow your retailers’ customers to place orders online, pay for them, and choose a convenient time to collect their order from each garden centre safely.

Click & Collect will allow a much larger volume of business to be handled with minimal staff. We expect this service to be in demand long after the initial lockdown period and most likely well beyond.

We’re designing completely contact-free, safe collection processes alongside environmental health specialists to keep garden centre workers and customers safe.

Helping the Industry Get Back on its Feet!

We’re offering garden centres their own online store, where they can show customers exactly what they’ve got and sell it securely online for click & collect or home delivery. Sites are completely free to set up and can be ready in minutes.

Growers and wholesalers can help retailers – and therefore themselves – by providing us with detailed product information and images. This way, we’ll be able to instantly add those products to any (or every) garden centre web shop in our network.
