Here at Davidsons Farm & Country we are known for our Farming Supplies, Agriculture Equipment and Animal Health products, however did you know we regularly stock Garden Supplies including flower bulbs and compost?
We source our gardening products from some of the best supplies around Europe and we are always delighted at the high quality of the products we receive. Unfortunately, due to the tragic flooding across Europe last year a recent order of flower bulbs had been held up and, when we ultimately received them, it was determined that they wouldn’t survive through to next season.
We faced the daunting decision of what to do with our vast collection, should we place them on a flash sale, dispose of them or send them back? None of these solutions particularly resonated with us, we felt there was more that we could do to ensure the suppliers in Europe didn’t suffer after a difficult year, and we are vehemently against disposing of such items which is a direct violation of our sustainable approach to business.
So what should we do? Well Peter Bell, Director at Davidsons Farm & Country, provided the solution. What if we donated them to the local community? And that is exactly what we did..!
We donated our entire delivery of flower bulbs to different groups, schools and communities around Perthshire and Angus to spread some seasonal cheer. We unanimously agreed the stock would be used to great effect ensuring our local community a colourful spring season ahead. Our donation recipients included the local environmental group Blair in Bloom, Coupar Angus Community Garden, Meigle Primary School and Eassie Primary School.
We hope the local community enjoys their new selection of flower bulbs and we look forward to seeing them bloom in the near future. Don’t forget it’s not just Farming Supplies, we offer Pet supplies, Animal Health supplies and of course Gardening supplies in our wide range available online or in-store!
Have a fantastic Spring!
