New styles and new prices!

In an attempt to make office plants more affordable, we've managed to come up with some excellent stylish new containers at some very reasonable prices. If we've been to see you before and provided a quotation you considered to be too expensive, or if you are considering plants for the first time, we'll price using these new containers. You can have any colour you like (including this great new matt metallic burgundy) and we have some lovely plants to go into them
Hear from you soon!

Claire's being creative again!

Our florist Claire has just created this artificial display for a client, using silk poppy flowers. Isn't it great? You could rent something similar, changed for a fresh display every three months, for £10.00 a month. As ever contact us for details!

New just in: Ficus Amstel Gold

Also just off the boat from Holland: an absolutely gorgeous variegated long-leaved Weeping Fig. The lower leaves are two different greens, further up they are almost yellow, and the new foliage at the top is a rusty red. I'm told this plant needs lots of light, so if you have a bright reception area in need of a plant, this could be the one for you. I'm in love with it, I just wish my house wasn't so dark.... If you want to know more get in touch or have a look in Gardenlands, where I pinched the idea from, if I'm honest!

New just in: Dracaena Art

Just off the boat from Holland, a new type of the trusty Dracaena family. It's like the common D. Janet Craig, but with a lovely vivid yellow stripe around the leaf edge. What's more it will cope in a poorly lit spot. Want to be the first office in Dorset or Hampshire to have one? Email me!

Hanging Basket Time

It's time to think about hanging baskets! If you want them ready for late May you need to order soon. Stewarts can supply baskets and tubs in a range of sizes to customers in Dorset, Hampshire and South Wiltshire, and we can look after them for you too. We can't offer a daily watering service, but we do install automatic irrigation systems, then visit fortnightly to feed and prune the baskets. Interested? Email Jonathan and you'll be sent a price list for baskets, or we'll come out and see whether a irrigation system could be installed if you wish.

Hi, I'm in charge of the day-to-day running of Stewarts Office Plants. This involves delivery of new plant displays, and ensuring existing customers receive the highest quality maintenance service. As you can see from the picture, I also handle the removal of particularly tricky plants from their pots, after which I like to pose with my trophy....

If you are an existing customer and you need anything at all, email me without delay!

Finishing touches - Ken Dodd style

Our popular Finishing Touches range is a great opportunity for Claire to try some wacky ideas in her search for creative innovation. Wire, String, Twigs, Bamboo and even feather dusters are pressed into service as embellishments to the living plant. In this case the live plant is the ever popular Anthurium . If you want know more about Finishing Touches then contact us.
