Finding and choosing garden plants online

Have you ever considered choosing and buying your garden plants online? It may surprise you to know that while sitting at home you can go on the internet and find a much bigger choice of plants than you would if you made a trip to your local garden centre.

Why not try it for a change? It’s convenient, and you will save petrol money and more time that you could spend relaxing in your garden, enjoying the fruits of your labour.

One of the best sites online for perusing and choosing plants, with plenty of information to help you make an informed decision, is Crocus. Crocus.co.uk is one of the top gardening web sites in the United Kingdom. They give the whole experience of shopping online for gardening products a bit of a spin by inspiring, advising and providing customers with all the stuff they need when they are out there in the garden getting their hands dirty.

On the Crocus site you will find a great selection of gardening products, from the latest designer plant to a garden bench to sit on.

The choice of plants is huge. You can find over 4,000 plants to choose from, unlike garden centres who have only around 400, plus everything else needed to plant, grow and enjoy the garden. Though plants are their main thing, they also have a number of other specialties to offer their customers, including a next day cut flower delivery service, fireworks, which they sell all year round, and a range of cut Christmas trees delivered direct to the door in time for the festive season. They also have a design service and a range of pre-designed garden borders to suit all tastes and gardens.

Crocus sell a wide range of garden products to keep all those garden plants in tip top condition. They also sell a very competitive range of garden machinery, from ride-on mowers to shredders. On their site you can also find tools, wellies, garden lighting, fencing, pots, garden furniture, barbecues, and even sheds to store everything in.

Nor do they restrict their offerings to the internet either. Crocus send out three seasonal catalogues each year to their customers, which contain a smaller but well-chosen selection of their plants and garden products.

Crocus are also involved with the RHS Chelsea Flower Show each year, and in 2005 they supplied all the plants for the award winning Laurent-Perrier garden designed by Tom Stuart-Smith.

So how do they get everything to their customers?

Crocus can deliver everything they sell to anyone living in mainland England, Wales and most parts of Scotland. They send everything out by overnight courier to arrive with customers fresh as a daisy the next day.

So business is blooming at Crocus, why not give them a visit? You can go direct to their homepage via
