Testimonials from the Trade

It has been a very difficult year for supply across the whole industry, but I just wanted you to know, that I think Zest has done a great job by keeping us informed. As soon as a product became available again, Linda has advised us. We have nominated Zest to the Choice Marketing Group as Supplier of the Year. The communication has been second to none.

Nick Haydon General Manager of Fakenham Garden Centre

With unprecedented demand for products this year, thank goodness that we have been dealing with Zest as our primary supplier.  Your products have done really well, our sales versus last year, have been fantastic.

Thanks for the sales figures for the group from Zest, what an outstanding result, especially given what we have all been faced with this season!

The introduction of extra Zest products for this season, has played a large part in what has been a very successful year. The quality of products and regular stock updates, has helped appease our customer base.

Anne Victoria Farm & Selby Garden Centres


We are very happy with the last couple of years dealing with Zest, and plan to dedicate more space in our garden centre to your products going forward. Regarding stock availability, you have outperformed a large proportion of our other suppliers in all departments, in what has been a very challenging year.

You kept us extremely well informed throughout a difficult season, better than any other supplier. Other suppliers should take a leaf out of your book and put customers first rather than trying to hide the fact that stock is in short supply. Not only have we kept us up to date with information, but when stock has become available they have let them know straight away.

We are really excited about working more closely with you in the future and based upon our experience this season and our visit to your site this year we plan to move all of our timber supply over to Zest.

It was a difficult year for all suppliers but Zest kept us fully informed twice a week with their stock list. It wasn’t pretty reading and not what we wanted to see but top marks to them as we knew exactly where we stood and could inform our customers accordingly.

Clair Bussell Director at Strawberry Corner Garden Centre

Clair Bussell

A big well done to Zest who in a difficult year not only gave us a full OOS report twice a week but also managed to supply when they could and with their support we have grown our sales by a massive 91%.
