The Cabin At Hortus Loci, Hook - A Beautiful Partnership
Post date: 22 Mar, 2021
Stone Group are delighted to announce we are adding a new pin to our
map with the opening of The Cabin at Hortus Loci in Hook.
in 2011, Hortus Loci is a wholesale plant nursery that supplies an
unrivalled range of trees, perennials, shrubs and other plants for
professional gardeners, landscapers, designers and their clients. The Plant Centre at
Hortus Loci is their retail arm which is open to the public 7 days a
Heap, CED Stone MD has known Robin and the team at Hortus Loci for
many years and when Robin told him about his exciting plans for their
site and asked if CED Stone might be interested in joining him on
this journey, he knew this was an opportunity not to be missed.
Loci are known for their high-quality plants and comprehensive
service. CED Stone is known for our high-quality landscaping products
and expertise in all things stone. We both have the same client base
and the same high standard of service that designers and contractors
demand. It's a perfect partnership."
and Mark at Hortus Loci add,
found it quite tricky to write this without resorting to the usual
cliches about how our products are so often combined to create
wonderful spaces in gardens and landscapes. The main reason being
that they are! From our side of the fence (or should we say path) it
is the fact that the team at CED are so nice to deal with from top to
bottom. We have built our business on the fact that we are
knowledgeable, helpful, offer a wide range, but above all personable.
We have seen these same attributes running through CED in all our
dealings, from Giles at the top through the sales team, down to the
men and women on the ground at the depots and their drivers."
located near Hook in Hampshire, midway between junction 11 of the M4 and junction 5 of the M3, the site is
within easy access of both our London East and London West Depots and
the London area in general. The cabin in Hook will serve as a mini CED Stone depot with a display area, being built by our friends Burnham Landscaping.
See below a map of areas
within an hour of Hortus Loci by car. As you will see we are within
easy reach of Oxford to the North, St Albans to the North-East,
Redhill to the East, Haslemere to the South-East, Lyndhurst in the
New Forest to the South-West, and Swindon to the North West.
to the cabin, will be able to browse the display and pick up our new brochure or
samples. Our friendly face on site will be Lee Bryant who will be
there to answer questions and advise.
the change in the marketplace and lessons learned during the
lockdown, 'click and collect' has become an even more popular service
and although we will not be stocking materials on-site to start with, clients will be able to place orders for delivery
or collection at the site.
The cabin will be the perfect venue to bring your clients to view our range of products,
also to sit down with them to discuss options over a Coffee and the
legendary brownies from The Hobo Co.
having a presence in Hook, designers and contractors can pop in
without having to come up to London. Choosing stone can be tricky to do
on a Zoom call, so by partnering with well-known and trusted
nurseries like Hortus Loci, and having a presence on their site, we
give clients the chance to visualise how our products will coexist
with some of the amazing specimens that Hortus Loci have to offer.
Saving time on travel, reducing meeting times and days out of the
office while reducing the co2 footprint of every project."
The Cabin will be opening on Good Friday and will be welcoming visitors throughout the Easter weekend, we hope to see you there.
