The Horti House Revolution: Embracing UK Growers Over Dutch Imports

A New Era in UK Houseplant Wholesale

Our mission is clear and compelling: to pivot UK garden centres away from reliance on Dutch imports, and towards a robust, flourishing partnership with British growers.

Understanding the Shift

For decades, Dutch imports have been the backbone of plant stocks in many UK garden centres. Known for their quality and variety, these imports have shaped consumer expectations and industry standards. However, this reliance on overseas nurseries has its drawbacks, including higher carbon footprints, increased costs due to transportation, and a lack of local variety.

The Horti House Vision

At The Horti House, we believe it's time for a change. Our vision is not just about replacing one supplier with another; it's about reimagining the entire supply chain. We see a future where UK garden centres are stocked with plants grown in the very soil they'll continue to thrive in - a future where British horticulture is celebrated, supported, and sought after.

Why Embrace UK Growers?

Sustainability: By sourcing locally, we significantly reduce transportation emissions, contributing to a greener, more sustainable future.

Economic Benefits: Investing in British nurseries supports the local economy, creating jobs and fostering community growth.

Resilience: Local sourcing means a more resilient supply chain, less vulnerable to international disruptions.

Quality and Variety: British growers offer a range of plants acclimatised to local conditions, ensuring better growth and longevity.

Making the Transition

Transitioning to British suppliers is a journey that requires commitment, collaboration, and creativity. The Horti House is at the forefront, working closely with growers to understand their challenges and opportunities. We're facilitating partnerships, sharing knowledge, and investing in research to elevate the quality and variety of British-grown plants.

Join the Revolution

We invite you to be a part of this exciting journey. Whether you're a garden centre owner, a British grower, or a gardening enthusiast, there's a role for you in this revolution. By choosing plants grown in the UK, you're not just beautifying your garden – you're contributing to a larger movement that benefits the environment, the economy, and the very fabric of British horticulture.

The Road Ahead

The path we're on is filled with potential. With each garden centre that joins this movement, with every plant that is grown and sold on British soil, we're writing a new chapter in the story of UK gardening. The Horti House is proud to lead this charge, and we're excited about the future we're cultivating together.
