Happy 1yr Anniversary!

2 comments by Matthew Skinner

One year ago today garden retailers were closed, nurseries were full of plants destined for composting and Matt was told he didn’t have a job. We saw an opportunity to bring HOPE to all...the growers stuck with millions of plants and people locked down at home desperate for something to do.

After our first post on Facebook went viral, reaching millions of people across the UK, we created Hope Plants and within 24hrs we had established a network of growers keen to supply us plants. We developed our website that evening and started receiving orders within seconds of it launching...thousands of them! 😅

The next challenge we had to overcome, was setting up a delivery network but by day 5 we started delivering plants to your door.

Twelve months later we continue to grow on our success, which has been founded on great customer service and top quality plants. We are a family run business with Matt being the plant expert and myself on social media, plus we have some extra help from our 3 young boys around the nursery! We are also excited to announce that we are about to start our first employee very soon, more details on this to come!

We are very proud to have led the way with being the first “pop up” plant delivery business and it’s great to see that other companies have been established to follow us in helping the horticulture industry during a challenging period.

We are very grateful and humbled for the support we have received from you, our customers and we will continue to work hard to invest and develop our business for years to come.

To plant a garden, is to believe in tomorrow..

Never give up Hope 🥰

Camilla, Matt & the boys xx

    Thank you so much for getting me through the lockdown.I was a worker in the nhs and last year was very very difficult, not only with work but some family issues on top of that. I loved coming home to my garden to escape and relax, and the fact that I could get quality plants from a company that delivered too,was amazing. Never have I ever been disappointed.
    Happy 1st Anniversary and thank you so much.x

    Bought from you last year and were very pleased. Unfortunately we had lost your contact information and now too late. Congratulations on your first anniversary.
