It takes a lot of people working together to ensure that your nursery or garden center is as successful as it can be.

Proper communication is a must when nurturing a plant to maturity (or prospective customers into sales), and the best way to communicate across your site is with a reliable two-way radio. 

But which radio would work best for your garden center? 

It's an important question, and you're in the right place to get the answer. You've found the ultimate garden center radio resource on the web

In this article, we'll highlight the very best devices on the market today — radios that are proven winners in the nursery and gardening industry. 

We know that the needs of each garden center differ, and we don’t expect one magical radio to work for every independent garden center or nursery that we serve. 

As a result, we recommend a one-on-one conversation with one of TechWholesale's radio experts. We're available via live chat, by phone at 888-925-5982, or by filling out our contact form.

If one of the radios on this list catches your eye, we can put together a free no obligation quote that has been designed with your specific needs in mind. 

What Do You Need in a Garden Center Radio?

Choosing the perfect radio for your retail garden center depends on a number of factors: the size of your facility, the ability to work inside and outside, a strong range, and many more.

That’s why you need the quality that comes with a name brand device. A random, no-name two-way radio off the shelf at a local electronics store isn’t likely to meet your needs. 

You need to do your research and understand what features are required for optimal communications within your facility. 

Here are the top radio features that we’ve found to be necessary for garden centers and nurseries:

  • Durability - Look for military grade hardware. 
  • The ability to work both inside and outside - UHF and Digital band radios only
  • Repeater capable, depending on the size of the site
  • Antimicrobial properties to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria
  • A strong range that meets the requirements of your facility. 
  • Good battery life that will last through the workday.

Now that we know what we're looking for, let's check out the top radios we recommend for your business specifically. 

Remember, if any of these catch your eye, don't hesitate to reach out to a TechWholesale representative at 888-925-5982, or by filling out our contact form.

The Best Radios for Garden Centers and Nurseries

Motorola DLR1060

The first radio that we’re recommending for your garden center is the Motorola DLR1060

This is a six channel radio, which means that it can easily segment a large nursery staff. As for range, when inside you have 20 floors or 300,000 square feet to play with. On top of that, it also communicates for up to two miles outdoors.

This device runs on a digital band. That means it is exempt from the FCC license expenses that most UHF and VHF radio-owners are forced to pay every year. In other words, the DLR1060 is a device that will save you money in the long run. 

If you’re concerned about your business communications being picked up by outsiders, there are no worries to be found here. The Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum technology of this device, coupled with 10,000 radio profile ID codes, will protect your privacy and keep outside radios away from your conversations.

The "page all" and "call all" features of the Motorola DLR1060 will allow you to reach everyone at once, and can be beneficial in an emergency situation or for communicating company-wide information. 

There’s also a direct call feature which can be used to reach out to one specific person without bothering the whole staff. 

The DLR1060 also meets military standards for durability and is covered in an antimicrobial coating that will curb the spread of dangerous bacteria. It comes with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery with an average life of up to 14 hours per charge.

This device comes with four channels to keep staff segmented and features both audible call alerts and vibracall technology. That means, when a call comes in, the radio won’t necessarily interrupt you when in conversation with a customer.

The CLS1410 is also one of our easiest devices to set up, thanks to its simplified cloning. Configure one radio and then just clone that setup to each additional device.
