Farplants launches web and mobile friendly trade portal

West Sussex based nursery wholesaler Farplants has announced that it has released its web and mobile friendly trade portal, enabling garden retailers to view stock availability in real time and secure plants instantly.

Through the web shop, UK garden retailers can access the full range of over 2,000 plant varieties, including their seasonal planted containers. Access is 24/7, and with the web shop being both mobile and tablet compatible, it can be used direct from the planteria, Farplants says.

The web shop was built entirely in-house by the Farplants development team. Drawing on the horticultural knowledge within the five nursery co-op, the in-house developers designed the portal to meet the needs of plant buyers. The bespoke built shop uses metrics to provide customers with live availability.

Farplants managing director Brett Avery commented: “We understand that plant buyers have many demands on their time. We have listened to their requests and built a user-friendly portal to act as a vital tool for managing their plant orders.

“Having the project built 100% in-house has meant we have had full control and can distil the years of horticultural knowledge into a simple to use tool. It has been fantastic working on the project and seeing it transform from initial drawings to a fully functional portal.

“At Farplants, we are continually focused on innovation and I am sure this latest development will be a huge benefit for our customers.”
