Short cut Press/Click-   
Introduction of Opportunities for the Sale and Hire of Topiary

The concept of Pilot Franchising Topiary plants came to me whilst I was in Holland 9 years ago, I realised that the United Kingdom needed a unity of strength to compete with the Dutch, who have their own system in place of a unified syndication of growers and agents throughout the Netherlands.

All purchases of goods will be at cost. You will have the benefit of Bulk Buying from our combined Franchisees, whilst we will negotiate the very best prices on your behalf with our suppliers as well as support-details of which are noted below.

For this purpose the Franchisor is Topiary House Ltd and each Franchisee will trade under the name of “The House of Topiary “followed by the name of the county of your choice.

We have provided a designated Postal Area Map of the UK and Northern Ireland with sales territory boundaries for each Franchisee. If you are interested in purchasing a designated area for this purpose, please let us know? – Each application will be considered. - An application and a copy of the Franchise agreement and Trade Price Listing will follow, once we are in receipt of your interest to pursue this matter further.

Please feel free to contact us at

Summary of Opportunities

1) Cost of Franchise:
 Participation costs Maximum £500 one off fee for Pilot Franchisees-County and Pilot Distributors-Towns £250..

2) Partnership

I believe franchising specifically Topiary plants through an ongoing association with Landscapers, Gardeners, Landscape Architects, etc. in partnership, through the means of franchise, is a step in the right direction

3) Photographic Images

We are quite passionate about our Topiary Plants that is reflective in the way we portray our Plants to the Public in the Form of Photographic Material that we have collected over the years as well as a good system in place.

4) Price Lists

The Price List has been made up of many suppliers who each depend on availability in terms of what they have stocked and are able to supply for the term of their season.

It has always been our ambition to offer our customers a truly comprehensive range of all sizes and choice, with our speciality in Topiary Plants and Ornamental Structures.

5) Representation

This gives a wide spread representation and choice of species of Topiary Plants in different sizes which we have allocated according to species , displaying the sizes, according to Height and Diameter, as well as Price, in an ascending order.

6) Variation of Price-Size- Height and Diameter/Capacity

In some cases we have displayed a variation of Price for a particular Topiary Plant of the same species, same height or diameter from a different supplier giving you a choice of Price difference which is only allocated to Franchisees and Distributors.

7) One Price List extracted from many suppliers

The Price lists that we receive are articulately extracted into one Price List that we as a Pilot Franchisor supply our Pilot Franchisees and Pilot Distributors throughout the UK.

The Prices are selected carefully extracting the best price for our clients sourced from many of our suppliers in Europe who we have developed a close relationship with us over the last 13 years.

8) Comparative and Variety of Species sorted in Shape /Size Order

You will find comparative prices for the same size from which you can make your choice.

This One Price List covers a large portfolio of Varieties of Topiary Plants and is set out alphabetically within the Category of Shape e.g. Balls, Cones etc.

Within the Shape Category we have listed the Variety in Height/ Diameter in an ascending order which assists in determining your size and Price requirements very quickly.

9) Periodic Reviews.

These Price Lists are reviewed once a year and it must be understood that each supplier carries different varieties of stock, sizes, species, heights, capacity, etc. and have persevered to provide a wide spectrum of species of plants. We will from time to time delete and apply additions of stock items via our newsletter to you
