Pick Up This Idea
Are your garden center and landscape customers low on plants or out of a certain variety? Consider opening a pick-up yard like Pleasant View Gardens plans to in Pembroke, N.H.
April 17, 2009
Pleasant View Gardens will open a new facility April 27 called The Pick-Up Yard at Pleasant View, where landscapers can load plants on their way to job sites early each day and garden center retailers can restock popular varieties they sold out of over the weekend.
Pleasant View’s pick-up yard will be in Pembroke, N.H.
“For many years, our customers have asked us to provide a service such as this, and in today’s economy, we want to do everything we can to help garden centers and nurseries be successful,” says Carol Huntington, marketing manager at Pleasant View Gardens. “We feel we’ll be helping fill a niche out there by offering fresh plants in smaller quantities throughout the season.”
Pleasant View will offer retailers and landscapers Proven Winners and Proven Selections annuals, perennials, herbs, hanging baskets, combination planters and Proven Winners ColorChoice flowering shrubs. The Pick-Up Yard at Pleasant View will operate from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the week and from 7 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.
Customers can call ahead and place orders so they’re ready to be loaded upon their arrival, or they can stop in, stroll through Pleasant View’s new greenhouse and select exactly what they need that day.
