Each type of plant requires individual and specific conditions to thrive. With each plant needing different nutrients, pH levels (Hydrogen ion content), amounts of water, sunlight levels and organic matter content. A small oversight in the balance of any of these conditions can result in plants being put under stress. This can make them vulnerable to pests and disease. As fully trained horticulturists, we can identify and rectify the problem to make sure you get the very best from your garden. We have much experience in the planting and maintenance of shrub and herbaceous borders. With the correct planting scheme, you can achieve colour and interest to tantalise the senses all year round, even in the depths of winter.
Tree Planting & Staking
Certain trees and large bushes need to be supported because of their size. When the stakes used for supporting such trees and bushes are correctly employed, they can be hidden. They can also be used for only a short period of time until the tree becomes established. The choice of trees we can plant in your garden is endless!
We can help to advise you on many different factors when it comes to trees. These can include which tree will: –
- Thrive in each particular soil;
- Mature to the desired height of the customers choosing;
- Tolerate sunny or exposed areas in a garden;
- Grow in boggy, clay or dried out soil;
- Keep their leaves, providing permanent privacy;
- Change to the customer’s favourite colour through the dreary winter months.

Sensory gardens are those that have a greater effect on the senses, through the use of specific trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants and bulbs. Through careful choice of colours, smells and textures, the garden can provide a wonderful learning experience, and are normally tailored to the needs of the individual that the garden is being constructed for.
Bulbs are a lovely addition to any garden and they are one of the easiest garden plants to grow! When spring flowering bulbs appear, it brings much-needed colour and interest to our gardens following the cold dull winter.
When it comes to growing bulbs all you need is well-drained soil and some sunshine. The ideal time to plant spring flowering bulbs, like tulips and daffodils is during September or October. By planting them at this time it allows the soil temperature to lower following the heat of the summer. Summer flowering bulbs, like dahlia, are ideally planted during spring, when the risk of frost has passed.
It is important that you plant bulbs at the correct time and not leave them unplanted, as they won’t survive out of the ground forever. If you require bulb planting in your garden ready for the spring, why not take advantage of our services.
