A national pub chain, shopping centres and councils up and down the country are all set for a colourful summer as we begin the mammoth task of preparing 12,000 floor-standing planters and hanging baskets.
Plantscape has always been the leading name in supplying and maintaining dazzling floral displays to councils but this year our products will be enjoyed by even more people because we’re branching out into other sectors for 2017.
This is thanks to our acquisition last year by landscape services, estate management and play space services providers TCL Group, a move which has enabled us to access markets already served by the Group’s other companies, including Burleys and TCL.
We have already agreed deals with a number of facilities management companies working with shopping centres and pubs up and down the country and more opportunities are in the pipeline, in addition to healthy orders from new and existing customers, including Hitchin BID and the Big Heart of Merthyr Tydfil BID, both of which were new customers this time last year.
We began our planting-up operation three weeks ago, having added an extra 500sqm to our 30,000sqm growing space over the winter to meet extra demand. We will be planting some 300,000 individual plug plants this year and will start our extensive delivery schedule at the beginning of June.
Richard Webster, group operations support manager for TCL, said: “Once again, we are experiencing strong demand from local authorities and business improvement districts but we are delighted to have extended our service to other sectors, namely retail and leisure.
“Those orders have come through Plantscape’s growing close working relationship with TCL Group’s other companies, which work across a wide range of sectors including construction, estate management and education.
“It all points to a busy summer ahead for everyone at Plantscape, from our sales executives to our road crews and planting teams, who are currently busy creating our displays in our greenhouses ready for when they will be delivered in early June.”
