Essex Gardening Information


A tip for late March


late march and into early April is best time to start outdoor tomatoes under glass, also late march is the time to plant your first early potatoes plant a couple weeks earlier in south areas and about two weeks later in the north, now is time to trim back heathers and cut back coloured dog woods to help maintain vibrant colours.


Spring is in the air


Spring is in the air and Jon & Ken have been busy preparing gardens for the growing season.


A Happy New Year to you all


Wishing all our customers a very happy new year.


Christmas is nearly here


Sweeping up the leaves, jet washing the drive and making your garden ready for Christmas, John and Ken are here.


Christmas lights


Not just Gardening, Ken & John have been asked to do the Christmas garden display at two houses. Lights, trees and Christmas Novelties.


Winter hanging baskets


Let Ken & John desighn your winter hanging baskets, for a long lasting display until spring.


Sweeeping up the Leaves


If you have some were for the lesves to decompose, this is far better than taking the fallen leaves to the dump. Mulch, from decayed leaves is great for the flower beds in the spring.


Tree Pruning?


With winter fast approaching, Ken & John have been pruning trees, taking branches out and generally finning the trees. This ensures that the trees are less likely to come down in the winter gales.


The big wrap


Ken & John have been wrapping palm trees this week, to protect them from ground frosts and snow during the winter.


Ken, our very own Alan Tichmarsh


Ken impressed our customer in Hatfield Peverel this week, with his wide knoledge of plants and shrubs .


Not just gardening, but Swimming Pools aswell


Ken & John have closed three swimming pools down for the winter season, not just gardeners, but general garden maintenance also.


Ken knows his plants


Ken was planting the boarders of a house in Maldon this week. A rockery has been given a new lease of life, as Ken uses his magic touch.


Another Big Contract


Ken secured the contract today for Priory Court, Hatfield Peverel. The duo take over all gardening chores as from October.


Ken is the new Alan Tichmarsh


One of our customers in Hatfield Peverel said "Ken is like a young Alan Tichmarsh" with his garden knowledge and imaginative ideas.
