Hortus Loci is a new breed of plant nursery. They have linked-up the finest growers in the UK, Europe and beyond to locate the best designer plants available. On the 17-acre site, near Hook in Hampshire, you will find a comprehensive selection of highest-quality specimens in a range of sizes that will enchant garden design concepts on any scale and over 85-percent of all the plants supplied are home grown..
Introduced by Ulf Nordfjell, RTPR began working with Mark Straver and Robin Wallis at Hortus Loci in April 2012 shortly after the business launched, with the brief to generate as much buzz and noise as possible in both trade and consumer publications. Getting consumer coverage for a trade nursery was quite a challenge but RTPR rose to it and generated column inches galore in virtually all target publications.
In addition to generating bread and butter coverage for the nursery, it is also in RTPR’s remit to build the profiles of directors and establish both as go-to experts and position Mark Straver as a garden writer.
Profile pieces on the nursery and MD Mark Straver have appeared in the Daily Telegraph, trade titles and three features in Gardens Illustrated. Most recently, in May 2014 Gardens Illustrated ran an 8 page feature on Hortus Loci.
