Notcutts Spans the Centuries17th May 2013 • Stephanie Recommends • Stephanie Donaldson
As their slogan reads – ‘Notcutts have been helping gardeners since 1897’. They were nurserymen for over fifty years before they opened one of the first garden centres in the 1950s and today they continue to advise gardeners and source quality British-grown plants. One way and another, there is a pretty impressive level of expertise within the company, which is now owned by the 4th generation of the family. I’ve used the Notcutts Book of Plants (now in its 17th edition) as an invaluable source of reference all of my gardening life and visited several of their garden centres over the years, always leaving with a fine plant or two. So, as a company that is good at reinventing itself, it’s good to see that they have come bang up to date and you can now shop online from their extensive collection of garden tools and plants, as well as delving into their Garden Library where they share their knowledge and expertise.
It’s clear that Notcutts understand their customer base. There are sections of the new site that look to inspire as well as provide ideas.The shopping pages have clear imagery featuring products in use. In the instance that you can’t find what you’re looking for visitors can consult the online help centre. Or of course you could use their online facility for finding your nearest Notcutts should you wish to talk to the experts face to face. Why not visit Notcutts Today.
