Since setting up the enterprise in 1987, hanging baskets have always been our speciality. Each year we try out any new variety of plants which may be suitable for hanging baskets and use any which are satisfactory to our customers benefit.
Hanging Baskets can be purchased on the Nursery. They should be, however, ordered early to obtain the basket of your choice. Most of the baskets we supply are made up to our customers requirements. We have an album of photographs, which our customers have supplied us with, from where you can choose the basket of your choice. An enormous range of plants and flower colour is available leaving the choice entirely up to you. Images of our baskets can now be seen on our "Basket types" page by clicking on the type that you would like to see.
Orders can be placed via our email address (above) but at present must be collected from the nursery when required.
In 1996 we developed our own lining system for hanging baskets which we named "The Amateurs Answer". With it’s ease of use and fully illustrated step-by-step instructions it allows complete novices to make up a hanging basket and obtain a professional result. You will find this featured on the Liners page
