SEEDS SCHEME 2020/2021
Welcome to the 2020 colour catalogue, once again we ask you to peruse our stunning full colour catalogue with many new additions. 2020 is the year of the Cucumber and Rudbekia.
We continue to offer the most competitive prices to members. We are always grateful to receive any comments regarding either the system or the catalogue and, where possible, we will make amendments.
POSTAGE AND PACKING
As I am sure you are aware postage costs have increased every year. Although we have tried to prevent any changes for the past 10 years, unfortunately this year we have had to make a slight increase. Individual packing has increased from £1 to £1.20 if required and postage for individual orders has increased from £1.75 to £2.00.
Obtain from each member, their order sheets and their payments, complete the details on the summary sheet and send this to us at the address above, together with all order sheets and remittance for the total value, including a charge of £1.20 per member for individual packaging.
Obtain from each member their order and payment, calculate the number of packets required of each variety by entering these figures in the relevant spaces on a spare copy. Add up the total value and complete the summary sheet. Send this to us at the address given below, together with the completed order form and remittance for the final value.
ORDERING ON LINE
If you wish to order online, we now have facilities in place for you to do this. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information or contact us direct on 01376 570000 for further assistance.
DIRECT DESPATCH, SUNDRIES SECTION AND FRUIT TREE/BUSH ORDER FORM
These items are for direct delivery to your member and now have a lorry symbol against the product and, although their remittance should be added with your total remittance on the summary sheet, they will be despatched straight to your member’s address, when the goods become available. Please ensure we have your member’s full name, address and telephone number.
We have continued to simplify the discount structure to make it easier to follow and for the following season.
ORDERS FROM £150 UP TO £200.00 WILL RECEIVE A 35% DISCOUNT.
ORDERS OVER £200.00 WILL RECEIVE A 50% DISCOUNT PER YEAR.
Please note, that no discount is available on any plants, fruit, garlic, mushrooms, potatoes, onion and shallot sets or sundry items. Although there is no discount offered on the above items, we would ask you to point out to your members that they can have the cheaper rate band shown in the catalogue for potatoes even if only ordering 1 pack, and of course they pay no carriage costs on any products ordered through the scheme. Please note plug plants are not included in the scheme and do include a one off carriage charge, no matter how many plants are ordered.
Onion sets and shallots etc. will be available for despatch from early October and all orders will be sent out in one consignment. Potatoes, however, will not be available until early January and these will be sent separately, subject to weather conditions.
We trust you will find this system easy to follow and to assist distribution of orders, we can confirm that all orders will have printed, on the top reverse flap or on the front on large size packets, the reference number as shown on the order form. Last year, we felt the despatch of orders was very efficient, and hopefully fulfilled your requirements as requested. We have every intention of maintaining this standard and where possible, improvements will be made.
If you wish to contact us for any additional information or queries, please email us at email@example.com.
Many thanks again for your support and we wish you and your members a very successful gardening year for the new growing season.
