Every garden centre needs a greenhouse display site… a Vitavia & Janssens one at that
GTN Xtra Promotion


Let us tell you why!

When your Garden Centre sells everything from seeds, to pots, to soil, to crops why would you miss out on completing the growing journey for your customers?


The benefits of owning a greenhouse…

One of the reasons for owning a greenhouse is that it can open up so many options for how and what you can grow in your garden. Grow outside and your crops are at risk of the elements and climate change but a greenhouse creates a small micro climate of its own that can extend the period of time you are able to grow in a season. 


So if a greenhouse extends the growing season to all year round, surely selling greenhouses would extend your Garden Centre’s seasonal purchasing too? It really does sound win/win!


But why Vitavia & Janssens Greenhouses?


Vitavia Greenhouses is a family run business based in Suffolk. They are the British partner of the Vitavia Group, the leading name throughout Europe for quality hobby greenhouses and greenhouse accessories.


They provide home and trade deli veries throughout the UK. They are proud to supply quality hobby greenhouses, widely regarded as being the best value for money, backed up by exceptional customer service.


Vitavia is also the UK distributor for Janssens greenhouses and garden rooms from Belgium.


Janssens market middle and high-end products developed in-house for customers who attach paramount importance to quality and style. Over the years they have earned a reputation for high quality design and innovation.


Janssens are the perfect complement to the already well established Vitavia range. 


But greenhouses will take up so much room…

This is the statement we hear a lot, but think about it… you have to sell an awful lot of seeds or pots to get the value of a greenhouse sale and they are a fantastic display space for other garden centre products. We advise having 3 models on display to suit all customers, 6 x 4, 6 x 8 and 8 x 10, so if you can squeeze them in somewhere, they really will become an asset to your Garden Centre.


Get in touch. 

So if we’ve whet your appetite and like us you think that adding a greenhouse range to your Garden Centre is an excellent idea, please get in contact via email or phone as we’d love to hear from you.
