As we enter the final months of 2017, UK based supplier of compost and growing media, Durston Garden Products Ltd reflects on what has been another momentous year.
“Whilst the company’s successful year must be attributed to a combination of factors," says National Sales Manager, Dan Durston, "it is without doubt that we have seen an increased level of new enquiries as a result of our recent BUY BRITISH marketing campaign.
"The objective of the campaign was to persuade retailers that as BREXIT negotiations continue, that now is the right time to switch supplier to one much closer to home – and based on recent feedback and orders placed, it would appear that the campaign has been a great success."
In recent weeks Durstons has also announced that it will be holding its prices for 2018, which is a complete contrast to many of its competitors.
Other compost suppliers are finding themselves having to hike-up their prices for 2018 due in-part to the often logistical nightmare associated with shopping abroad and the lengthy supply chain involved with that process.
“The word is out,“ continues Dan, “that Durstons is a great company to do business with and that we really can delivered products to you anywhere in England and Wales within 5 days from receipt of order – now that’s got to be a good thing!.
"What’s more we also guarantee to HOLD our prices for 2018. Equally and unlike some other compost suppliers we have had a full harvest this year and are confident therefore that we can, and will, meet any orders and obligations that we engage in."
Family-owned Durston Garden Products is extremely proud of its 150 year-plus British heritage and its state-of-the-art packing facility in Somerset. The facility is located alongside the family owned land where the peat is harvested, processed, bagged and then shrink wrapped onto pallets before being loaded onto Durstons own-branded lorries ready for distribution to anywhere in the UK.
“As we end the year on a high,” says Dan, “we look back with pride at what we have achieved once again as an independent British organisation, whilst also look forward to bigger and better things to come."
