Every business needs finance. Garden centres and gardening businesses are no exception. Whether starting out, expanding your business or taking on a whole new challenge, ASC are here to make getting that finance simple for you.
Garden centres are unique and interesting type of business that is truly unlike any other. When you run a garden centre, you face a series of challenges that come with straddling the retail, services and natural worlds – challenges that no other business faces. We’re here to make sure that finance isn’t one of those challenges, no matter your situation.
Planting the seeds of success.
When we say that garden centres are a unique type of business, we mean unique in every sense. What other business has to consider whether to buy tulips or geraniums at the same time as they’re thinking about whether people would prefer wet or dry compost at the same time as they’re shopping for a wheelbarrow? That uniqueness also applies to the finance process. Lenders will want to know everything from the local business area and whether it’s relevant to gardening and landscaping, through to the general financial situation of the area and whether gardening is popular. That means a garden centre faces a lot of requirements that other businesses will lack when they look for finance.
Nor is every garden centre the same – and that changes what they might need from their finance. A centre that deals with a lot of landscaping and planting businesses might benefit most from business expansion finance to help suit their more business-to-business needs. On the other hand, a centre that’s supported by many local amateur gardeners might be more suited to the more granular approach of peer-to-peer finance. So, when you’re looking to finance your garden centre, you need the support of a broker that knows finance and gardening alike.
