New National Nurseries Week
A celebration of British Horticulture
British independent nurseries are at the heart of new week-long celebration of horticulture with the launch of National Nurseries Week that aims to make independent nurseries the NUMBER ONE place for plants
The first week of May is one of the busiest
in the gardening year and so the perfect time to get more people buying plants direct
from British nursery growers.
Many nurseries are overlooked by gardeners
when it comes to buying plants as they are tempted by offers from chains and
other retailers such as DIY stores who are not plant specialists. Nurseries are
under a lot of competition so they really need support from gardeners not just
to survive but to thrive.
National Nurseries Week is a way to sway
gardeners of all ages, both experienced and novices, to discover the added
value they receive when going direct to the growers and to encourage them to make
nurseries their first choice when it comes to buying plants.
Nurseries offer plants of exceptional
quality and free advice from professionally trained horticulturists and
experienced staff. In addition, supporting nurseries helps reduce plant miles
and boosts the local economy. They also make a great day out as many are based
in beautiful and interesting locations and with participating nurseries spread
across Britain, making it a great way to discover new parts of the country.
The campaign was launched at the inaugural Kick
Start Conference, organized by the British Plant Nursery Guide, exclusively for
independent nurseries held in the Cotswolds in February.
Guest Speaker at the Kick Start Conference, Journalist and Broadcaster,
Matt Biggs said “National Nurseries Week is a unique opportunity to visit your
local independent nursery and discover the exciting range of plants they
provide. There are special events, ideas and expert advice – everything you
need to create a fascinating and beautiful garden”.
Guest Speaker Matt Biggs with Gilly Pollock at the Kick Start Conference
National Nurseries Week will include talks, demonstrations, special offers and
tours of nurseries.
A full list of events will be published in April or register now to receive updates, opportunities for media coverage or information of how to participate email@example.com

Spring is the perfect time to order the best Biodegradable Seedling Pots
Biodegradable Seedling Pots - no more potting on
Have you tried these new eco Biodegradable Seedling Pots?
We're pretty potty about these great new biodegradable seedling pots, so much so that we were the first retailer in the country to sell them.
Sales are rising each year and now hundreds of gardeners are using them, some for their second and third season.
Gardeners love them because.......
- No more potting on seedlings - just plant your pot straight into the ground - saving you time
- Breakdown in the soil in 4-6 weeks - depending on moisture and heat levels
- The seedlings grow better as you don't disturb their delicate roots
- They don't release harmful chemicals - like newspapers which contain bleach and ink leaving behind a chemical cocktail in your veg patch
- They release nutrients as they break down, giving your seedlings the best start
- They don't absorb moisture like coir or peat, so are less likely to dry out and require less watering
