Getting started

Self-watering planters are a canny idea for busy people (and who isn't?). Not only are self-watering planters beautiful in their own right, they actually take care of plants better than most people can. So they are ideal for people who tend to 'lose' plants.

Even busy plant experts like us are more than happy to let these clever planters do the watering.

These self-watering planters are gift boxed and an ideal starter to get into the smart world of self-watering. Perfect for growing herbs and all tender plants that need bottom-watering. These planters contain the water inside the unit so are hygenic and suited for kitchen use - or anywhere. Download GIFT PLANTERS e-brochure (pdf).

An Unbeatable DIY Garden Design Option

As well as award-winning designs and plants, we give the same care and attention to DIY Garden Designers.
Put your own DIY pallet of plants together Designer pallette to plant pallet
A favourite delivery method of ours, and our clients, is to have all plants carefully and individually selected by us (but chosen by the client, through talking to us), and then delivered all together at a pre-arranged date.
You get the best quality plants in existence at competitive prices, plus a much wider choice than you get from any other single supplier, or locally - because if you want something we haven't got, we will get it for you, from anywhere in the UK or Europe if need be, from our extensive trade network.
Our design pallette is huge. It is how we do our bespoke designs for the top shows and awards. We will do the same for you - we don't know any other way. Plus, for a small one-off fee, we can come and meet the delivery (or bring it with us) and lay out the plants to their best effect for you. No other plant or design company does this! So, even in a DIY garden design we are there to help.
Our Designer + DIY option gives you the best of both worlds: you prepare your garden (with our soil advice for the intended plants), and we will bring a designer quality selection of plants and help you lay them out. We will tell you about any aftercare they need, which can be done either by yourself, or professionally. Priceless.  
Read Clem's DIY Hardy Tropical Garden Case Study, and see how, from a sketch supplied to us, we gave him design advice, plant selection from the widest choice, and all plants delivered together in one go, ready for planting day. Clem even took advantage of having our top designer, Peter, arrive with the plants and plant them out to the best effect. You are welcome to join in Clem's success.

Citrus Care Guide CLICK HERE
Citrus trees are very rewarding plants to look after, providing endless interest as the scented flowers appear in spring; small fruits set as the flowers fade; fruits steadily grow over 6 months until they ripen to orange or yellow; and the fruits are either picked or remain decoratively on the tree for 3-10 months after ripening.

Know your olives Olive Care Guide CLICK HERE
The Olive tree symbolises the essence of the Mediterranean landscape. It is an elegant, evergreen tree which makes an excellent specimen plant for a sunny courtyard in a terracotta pot or planted in a Mediterranean style garden. If you are bold enough, there is nothing quite like your own olive grove, under planted with lavender to stimulate the imagination.
