Leading garden centre retailer Homebase now with the largest selection of plants online

Milton Keynes, UK, 2015-2-12 — /EPR Retail News/ — As part of its ongoing digital developments and in a bid to make gardening more accessible, leading garden centre retailer Homebase is expanding its online offer to include thousands of plants, which will be available to purchase throughout the year from March 2015.

This will be complimented by help and advice to inspire people to create a haven for their friends and family this Spring/Summer.

Customers will no longer need to worry about the years and experience it can take to cultivate beautiful mature gardens, with a new range of Italian Specimen Plants with carefully manicured spirals and cloud shapes to create an ‘instant’ garden to be proud of.

Larger plants that can also be troublesome for customers to transport will now be available for home delivery.

Jon Kemp, Head of Garden at Homebase, said: “This is our biggest range of plants ever and now our customers will have more choice – as well as the freedom to shop when and how they want, whether that’s browsing one of our garden centres or at home online or through the new Homebase app.”

No garden is complete without water to create a sense of tranquillity. This season, a new range of Aquatic Plants for growing around, in or floating on your pond, will also provide a home for wildlife.

Over 350 plants are already available to purchase online including Roses, Fruit Trees and Ornamental Flowering Cherries.
