Simple Ways to Increase Your Cactus Sales

Are your cacti stuck in a corner, not in sunlight, without proper plant labels with information and grown in round pots?  If they are, you are losing out on sales.  Most cactus buyers collect these plants like philatelists, and need to know precisely what they are buying to avoid duplication.  A little thought and reorganisation could do wonders.

1.  CHOOSE AN AREA WHICH IS WELL LIT: It need not necessarily be in the house plant area, but remember it must be frost free in the winter.

2.  COVER THE AREA WITH SHARP SAND OR GRAVEL.

3.  A PROPER DISPLAY:  All the cactus plants that we supply are grown in square pots which enables the plants to be displayed properly without falling over.  Every plant is computer labelled.

4.  HAVE GROWING INSTRUCTION LEAFLETS AVAILABLE.

5.  INCREASE YOUR SALES WITH DISPLAYING ACCESSORIES: Display Chempac Cactus Fertilizer, cactus compost and small bags of sand and gravel.  Window trays are also an added sale.

6.  OFFER FREE ADVICE AND HELP TO CUSTOMERS: All our plant labels have our phone number on, as we operate a free help and advice service for your customers.  Although cacti sell all the year around, peak sale times are in spring when plants are in flower, and at Christmas when they make attractive gifts.  School holidays and half term times are also busy as children avidly collect them - stock plenty of the smaller sizes at these times.
