Welcome to the first blog of the new year. We've got loads planned for 2011, so without further ado let's take a look ahead...
A New Look for a New Year
As many of you will already know, we have been busy creating a whole new look for Haxnicks. Our packaging has become more distinctive, refreshing and contemporary than anything we've ever done before, and will be brightening up the grow your own sections of Garden Centres across the UK from January. Take a look at our 'Garden Products' page for examples.
|King Size Victorian Bell - just one
of the new additions for 2011
We have already had so much interest in our brand new range of Natural Bamboo products, even before they've hit the shops! Fruit cages, Sweet Pea frames, Decorative Arches, Pergolas and Tunnel hoops are all coming very soon - watch this blog for more news!
2011 sees the launch of many great offers, here's a brief run-down of the first to sprout:
Free Book when you spend £50
'Down to Earth' by Madeleine Cardozo is a refreshingly simple A-Z guide to growing your own fruit and veg, and you'll be able to get a copy ABSOLUTELY FREE when you purchase £50+ worth of Haxnicks' products. For example, you could buy a Haxnicks' Speedhoe, a pack of Vegetable Patio Planters, a 3 pack of Bell Boy Propagators and a pack of Birdscare and on top of all that a free book worth £14.99 - all for £51.96 - great value!
Our 'Love to Grow' competitions are always great fun, not only for winning great prizes but as a way of encouraging those that are not sure about growing their own fresh produce to take the plunge.
Coming soon: The Love to Grow Potato Planter competition - open to all and is the biggest and most exciting yet, featuring some fantastic cash prizes.
There will be three competition classes in which to enter yourself/family/school/company:
Potato Planter Photography Award
- £100 for the best photograph of your Haxnick's planter full of potato flowers
- how many can you grow in a single bag? £100 worth of Haxnicks' goodies up for grabs
- Another £100 of Haxnicks products for the largest spud grown in a Haxnicks planter. We will give more details on exactly how to take part when we formally launch the competition with terms and conditions, but you'd be wise to get ahead by ordering seed potatoes from your local garden centre ready to start chitting and a Haxnicks Potato Planter
in time for planting them out in the spring.
But that's not all. Stay tuned to this blog (click the 'follow' icon on the right) where we will announce more really exciting new product developments, a new catalogue, shows, updates on media activity and some more Youtube videos all on the horizon.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers for their patronage in 2010, and wish you all a very successful year of gardening ahead.
