Planthunters is a platform where retailers buy special plants directly from the grower.

After the retailer (garden centre, florist, decorator) has chosen online from a varied range of special and new plants, the grower delivers them via the exporter. Through shorter transparent lines and while preserving the chain, Planthunters ultimately aims for a 100% match between supply and demand with less waste. The winners? Both the grower, the exporter, the retailer, the customer and the plant! Planthunters is the best connection between growers and retailers with independent and efficient logistics and financial flows.
