Haskins Garden Centre group has introduced a houseplant adoption scheme.
The garden centre group is experiencing requests for various succulents. These include aloe vera, calathea and cacti.
To keep up with demand, Haskins has set up its own ‘adopt a houseplant’ scheme. This asks shoppers to fill in a form saying why they believe they would be able to give the houseplant a good home.
Lisa Looker, brand director, believes that there are many reasons why customers are looking for a houseplant:
- Always pleased to see you
- Makes a great listener
- Life and soul of any room
- Never answers back
- Easy to look after
- Low maintenance
- Improves the air quality
- The perfect company
- Found to be relaxing
- Makes a house a home
Lisa added: “We want to be able to keep up with the increasing demand for houseplants on sale at Haskins. We’ve introduced our ‘adopt a houseplant’ initiative.
“There are so many reasons to own a plant pet – it’s always pleased to see you and will never answer you back!
“Houseplants come in many forms and vary a lot. Now, customers can choose their houseplant based on character and personality.
“Those interested can ask for a form in any of our centres. We’ll then follow this up with a home visit and check-ups.”
