Amberol’s self-watering planters are a key feature of Kulla’s work with local authorities creating floral displays across the towns and villages of Slovakia. In addition to planting displays, Kulla also undertakes the watering and fertilising of the planters, as well as offering storage facilities. The have also organised Flora Bratislava, the international fair of flowers and gardening since 1993.
Amberol appoint just one official partner in each company to ensure the integrity of their brand and the presence of a trusted representative. Kulla first encountered Amberol at an international horticultural fair in 2006 and began using the company’s self-watering planters in 2008.
“We are delighted to have been using Amberol’s products for 13 years now. We love their quality and versatility,” comments Kulla’s sales manager Eva Rigin.
Kulla mainly use Up-the-Pole-Baskets (UTP-2P) and Beehive Planters (BHV–5P) when creating floral displays. Up-the Pole Baskets create an interesting visual impact by varying the height of displays, while Beehive Planters create a stunning floral centrepiece in public spaces.
“The Up-the-Pole baskets are probably our most popular products,” explains Eva. “They can be seen decorating the towns and villages across Slovakia bringing colour and beauty to the townscapes. We often use flowers such as pelargonium to create a great impact when they are attached to the poles. Because the planters also offer optimal water capacity, using them saves money by reducing the need for our staff to water the planters more than once or twice a week, even during the hot Slovakian summer.”
One of the reasons why Kulla rate Amberol’s products so highly is due to the “sophisticated and unique” self-watering system that helps save water. “The planters don’t leak and help keep evaporation to a minimum,” adds Eva. “We also like the fact that the planters are environmentally-friendly because they can be recycled at the end of their lifespan with the recycled polyethylene fed back into production.”
Despite the distance and issues around the UK’s split from the European Union, Amberol and Kulla have maintained a good working relationship. Eva comments: “The customer service from Amberol is excellent. They are very helpful any time that we need any information or advice. Also, the production of the self-watering planters is always on time. In fact, our dealings with Amberol can be described using two words: accuracy and punctuality.”
Like so many Amberol customers, Kulla is more than happy to recommend Amberol’s products and services to other organisations. “We would definitely recommend Amberol’s products because of their high quality, unique self-watering system, originality and excellent customer service,” says Eva.
“We would also like to thank all Amberol’s staff for the great job they do and their invaluable co-operation over the years. We wish them every success in their work and many years of helping to create floral beauty in our towns and villages.”
