Frogmore Gardens boutique gardens and nursery

Frogmore Gardens is a boutique mail-order and retail nursery specialising in flowering perennials for the herbaceous border, drought tolerant and prairie gardening styles, as well as bulbs, shrubs and a wide variety of grasses. The Frogmore Gardens web site is a Joomla! / Virtuemart online shop. It featured:

  • Automated integration of VirtueMart 2 customers, orders, products and stock movements with the FrontAccounting ERP system, to integrate Frogmore Garden's e-commerce trading activity with over-the-counter nursery sales
  • Running on a new cloud hosting VM solution driven by Apache OpenStack and Vesta Control Panel
  • An on-site peer instance of Frogmore Garden's systems which extends the VirtueMart - FrontAccounting interface to include collection and synchronisation of combined data between the public and on-site installations
  • A complete rebuild based on a Twitter Bootstrap template
  • An eBay-style product finder adapted to customised plant characteristics
  • eWay and PayPal payment gateways
  • Blog and newsletter sections, with regular authoring and automated distribution of mail newsletters
  • Combined product pack and promotion services
  • Search engine enablement and optimisation

In early 2017, Frogmore Gardens moved to a new platform, due to changes in business conditions.
