What we did in 2019

Plants

2019 has seen us supply 60,000 root ball plants, enough to cover the length of 6850 double decker buses. We also supplied 1.5 million bare root plants, 500,000 potted plants and 5km of instant trough grown hedging.

300,000 rabbit guards were also supplied to keep your young plants protected. We have had a new shed built at our nursery which is filling with root balls ready to be delivered.

Customers

2019 was our 14th year of trading. With 30,000 customer calls taken and 4335 new trade accounts opened, we have been awarded gold trusted status on Feefo for the 5th year in a row.

Charity

St. Catherine’s Hospice

We have been supporting a local charity, St. Catherine’s Hospice, throughout the year. St Catherine’s cares for patients and families across Chorley, Preston and South Ribble who are affected by life-shortening conditions like cancer, motor neurone disease and heart failure.

We have donated to the St. Catherine’s Hospice charity shop and have also raised money in the office with Halloween dress up and Christmas Jumper day.

Macmillan Cancer Support

We held a Macmillan’s Coffee Morning at the office. Macmillan provide physical, financial and emotional support to those who are suffering with cancer. Everyone contributed and showed their support to Macmillan.

Television

Office Life

We are a dog friendly office and have been greeted by many excited faces and wagging tails this year. Meet our four-legged friends…

2019 has seen the company grow in staff and with it grow in the number of brews drunk which we have estimated at 40k. We are heading into 2020 with bigger goals and hopefully more four-legged friend visits. Here’s to a great year!
