ONE of the UK’s family-run garden centres has officially launched a national online mail order service for gardeners. Whitehall Garden Centre at Lacock near Chippenham in Wiltshire can now offer shoppers from all over the country the chance to buy the products and plants it stocks via its online shopping pages on its website www.whitehallgardencentre.co.uk.
Garden centre Director, Mark Self explained: “We have now extended the Whitehall Garden Centre experience online so people can buy what they need for their house and garden from the comfort of their own home.”
The mail order service, which covers everything from furniture through to pond accessories, can also be accessed by calling the garden centre on 01249 730204.
Mark added: “We will also pledge to plant around 80 native trees every year at the garden centre or on our neighbouring farmland and proposed nature reserve to offset the miles travelled by one of our delivery vehicles. Therefore anyone who orders anything from us and requires it to be delivered will inadvertently be helping reduce carbon emissions. We will extend this service to all our mail order deliveries too.”
The complete range of products available for purchase via mail order includes: garden buildings, garden and home furniture, BBQs, chimeneas, garden sundries, giftware, outdoor wear, pet and wild bird products, conservatory furniture, footwear, machinery, selected plants and pond accessories. West Country food items from the garden centre’s farm shop are also available online.
Most of the products stocked at Whitehall Garden Centre are available to addresses in the UK. Postage and packaging on individual items is not included in the product price and details of P&P will be quoted separately on all orders.
