despatched over 3,000 mail order orders in March, April and May; an increase of around
20% over the previous year and an all-time record for our packing shed. This increase has

The icing on the cake was another Gold Medal at the Chelsea Flower Show achieved by our
young and relatively inexperienced show team staging our superb stand in a heat wave.
The Burncoose landscaping team have completed planting schemes in large gardens near
Honiton, Pangbourne and Old Windsor as well as several in Cornwall. These can viewed in
more detail here. We are delighted to have obtained new projects for 2011 in
Southern Ireland, and other distant parts of the UK.
Our website attracted 2,000 unique visitors every day of the year and 1,500,000 visits overall
in 2010. Nearly all of the plants listed on the website have at least one picture and the
majority now have four different pictures together with full cultural information. Burncoose
is therefore well established as one of the very top tier mail order plant suppliers in the UK.
Even the much vaunted new mail order computer system is finally up and running properly.
FOR ALL THESE REASONS WE HAVE DECIDED TO KEEP ALL OUR PLANT PRICES FOR 2011
EXACTLY THE SAME AS IN 2010 (VAT and carriage increases being the only exception).
After several years of heavy investment in our website, pictorial catalogue, packing shed and
computer systems we now feel confident that our publicity and reputation for supplying
good quality plants on time combined with a price freeze will generate further growth in our
We have always tried to locate, import and grow new and exciting plants from around the
globe which are not available in garden centres. This year is no exception and you will find
over 200 new plants on our ever expanding website.
A big thank you to all our long-standing and many new customers from 2010.
We very much look forward to hearing from you again soon in 2011.
Regards Charles Williams.
