A Statement from R. M. Kemp, the owner of Perfect Choice:
You have again helped us weather the storm of another lockdown. Although my usual customers, the garden centres, were not closed this time, the dark days of January still left them largely empty and unable to order normal plant quantities from me. Each online order has meant a few less plants have gone to waste, and helped lessen the blow to my family business.
Over the last couple of months, this situation has gradually changed and, currently, most garden centres are very busy as the public begin to enjoy the arrival of Spring and prepare their gardens for the Summer ahead. We have always said that our website would only remain live until the garden centres were able to trade as normal. We have now reached that point and I believe that it is time to return solely to our wholesale operation and in turn let the garden centres do what they do best; sell our plants to their customers. Quite simply, we don't produce enough plants to stock a website and supply our wholesale customers! Our website will stop taking orders at midnight on Sunday 11th April.
It is always a good thing in business to know and concentrate on your core trade and do it well. Rest assured that the 'Perfect Choice' glasshouses are producing a fantastic range of plants to fill your flowerbeds, hanging baskets and patio containers for the upcoming Spring/Summer months, all of which will be available from the local garden centres that we supply.
Thank you so much for again helping to preserve this 76 year old business and giving it the chance to thrive over the coming years.
