If you have come from twitter or facebook, in response to my post, then thank you! This post is a current, as things stand situation. The post below this ‘Adapting To Potential Problems’ is the one that will explain it all, so that you know why we’re in the position we are, despite having tried to already get round a pretty major set back!
In the last post I wrote about how we were going to adapt to the mist propagator we bought recently breaking, leaving us with no seedlings, or plug plants for early season sales. This was already a fairly big problem, as we knew we were going to miss out on early season sales and cash flow as a result.
Our solution was to use the refunded money to buy in some stock, to tie us over, but since then, a supplier has let us down. We were open and honest, saying we were an e-shop, selling wildlife friendly plants. The order was cancelled whilst being placed because they only sell to landscapers, professional gardeners and designers.
This has left us with a problem as the wholesale suppliers either want more money than we have to place a minimum order, or have too few of the plants we need to make a difference to wildlife. Imagine having to spend all your money on just 5 varieties of plants when you’ve spent money on stock photos for the website!
Please help make a difference to wildlife and help “Create A Buzz!” Everything you need to know is in the piece below. Imagine if my business is saved now? I could do so much to help wildlife, and remember, you’ll be making a difference too, one purchase at a time!
