Large Range for Landscape Professionals
Provender Nurseries held their Autumn Fair last week. Michael Warren reports on this event
Invitations were issued to guests, customers and press to an informal day to view their large range of plant stock. This material is especially suited to garden designers, landscapers and property developers.
Trading as Provender Nurseries since 2013 at the Swanley site of 18 acres in Kent they are located just inside the M25. This is convenient for London based developers and transport around the country not to mention the Channel Ports for imports and exports.
Hard & Soft Landscape Material
With a knowledgeable staff of 48 persons on hand to assist, this Trade nursery is a one-stop place for all landscape materials, both hard and soft.
Their large stock is impressive in two ways, in both quantity and size, especially specimen trees and shrubs which can give an instant effect around large buildings or convince clients of landscapers that their money was well apportioned.
Also in attendance were representatives from some of Provender’s suppliers and organisations for the trade. Health of plants is a current subject in the news, especially with increasing pests and diseases spreading. The animal and plant agency from the DEFRA were on hand to answer questions.
Safety was covered by the Amenity Training & Consultancy offering training courses for those using chemicals and machinery. French Company SBM Life Science, promoted both the Bayer and Maxicrop range of products. Claber from Italy displayed their irrigation equipment with lengthy guarantees to support their systems.
The Association of Professional Landscapers were in attendance as were the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI).
