Benefits to Retailers

  • Save time & money on web development - add a fully featured Plant Finder to your website in minutes of development time.
  • Save time & money on plant care sheets - print plant care sheets for customers as needed from your Plant Finder.

  • Deliver added value to your customers via your website - direct customers to your website for all their plant care information needs.

  • Increase sales of plant aftercare products - plant care pages contain references to the generic products gardeners should use to get the best from their plants in each season - feeds, mulches, sequestrol etc.

Your customers can find out which plants you sell whatever time they are doing their plant research, even at 3am! Our Plant Finder will bring customers back to your website to find out how to care for their plants, and to find new plants and trees that will look good and thrive in their gardens.

The Plant Finder can be used by staff in store for helping customers and supporting marketing with Social Media and newsletters.

Benefits to Retailers' Customers

They gain a reliable source for all their plant information needs on your website - no more wasting time searching the internet and getting unpredictable results. They can look up their plants by botanical or common name.

They can save time, and be accurate with names of plants they are looking for by creating a "My Plants" list as a shopping list to take to the garden centre, or email lists of plants to the centre for more information. They can put togetehr their own care plans by printing plant sheets including full season by season care information.
