Plants for Mothers Day - A Promise

I knew I could never go wrong giving Mum plants for Mothers Day.  Her eye's would just light up, and her new baby would be carefully placed in the sunroom.    She was an avid gardener, stopping at every nursery along the way to anywhere.  As a kid, I remember many a Saturday spent running around the nursery benches, pushing my nose into the roses until I lost interest....how much longer Mum?

How we measure our Plants!

Your plants are bigger than other plants I have bought online!  We hear this a fair bit.  

We think it is important to deliver a plant strong and vigorous and up to the journey, but still young enough to quickly establish.

When we describe a plant as being 20-25cm tall (our most common size) it is measured from the soil level to the top of the plant gaining you a much bigger plant than if measured from the base of the pot.

Organic Gardening

How Does Your Garden Grow? Organically, of Course!

Organic gardening is the way forward. (Well, actually, if you want to get picky about it it’s the way backwards-but it’s the best way.) People have been gardening organically for thousands of years; it is only recently that we have been resorting to damaging chemicals, weedkillers and pesticides to make our gardens grow.
