YouGarden, the multichannel horticultural retailer, has acquired GardenDirect, the UK's online and mail-order provider of live plants. The fee is £62 plus VAT per year minus a 20% discount if you renew your subscription within 28 days or, as a new Gardenforum user, you've got a free preview in the last 24 hours.
Gardening teaches students about fruits and vegetables, helping them to feel more comfortable and familiar with the world of fresh produce. This increases the likelihood that students will choose to incorporate healthy fruits and vegetables into their diets, rather than subsist on sweets and fast food.
Gardening Express, based in Chelmsford, Essex, is a leading online garden centre in the UK. The company was created by CEO and founder Chris Bonnett, and has become a thorn in the side of traditional rivals with its dynamic approach and new thinking.
