Don’t Get Hung Up on Basket DIY – Choose PHS Greenleaf!

PHS Greenleaf warns against the false economy of using DIY store hanging baskets this summer.

Online PR News – 28-April-2011 – – Thinking of saving a few pennies this summer by popping to your local DIY store or Garden Centre for hanging baskets? STOP! when you compare DIY hanging baskets to those available from PHS Greenleaf, you’ll soon realise that you’re doing your business an injustice, that could cost you money

As with most things, the job of creating an eye-catching summer floral display to attract passing trade is best handled by the professionals. PHS Greenleaf, the UK’s leading interior and exterior landscaper, grows and hangs over 40,000 professional sized hanging baskets each year.

The 14” hanging baskets commonly found at DIY chain stores really won’t make much impact on the exterior of a pub or hotel. PHS Greenleaf’s professional baskets are twice the size. For as little as just £5 more, you could have king sized superior planted baskets delivered directly to your door. £5? Now, that might not even cover the cost of fuel for the trip to a DIY store!

And its not just baskets. Unlike the DIY and Garden Centre option, PHS provides matching displays for troughs, window boxes and hay mangers, for a fully co-ordinated high impact display.

The final secret of maximum impact is plant selection. Having refined the plants used over many years, PHS Greenleaf grows baskets and troughs in its own nurseries to guarantee top quality long lasting displays that will lift the face of a pub or hotel all year round long after shop bought options have faded and died.

“The appearance of hanging baskets, troughs and window boxes heralds the start of summer,” says Stuart Price, Managing Director of PHS Greenleaf. “This isn’t a nice to have, a good floral welcome means extra trade and nothing beats
a PHS Greenleaf display.
“It’s no wonder our customers not only attract passing trade but regularly win awards for their displays.”

With everyone tightening their financial belts, it is more important than ever to make every penny count. Making PHS Greenleaf the obvious choice for hanging baskets, troughs and window boxes

As well at its successful range of exterior floral products, PHS Greenleaf also supplies interior planting, corporate flower displays, artificial plants and decorated Christmas trees and accessories. For further information, visit
