All ready for Christmas...

Apart from a shopping centre who had their trees weeks ago, the first of our customers received their fully-decorated Christmas trees this week. Here's a photo of a a few more all ready to go out.

Unfortunately, all the red & gold ones are at the front, but we also do some great combinations of silver, blue, burgundy, black, lime green (honestly!), bronze, etc. etc.
Delivering 72 trees to Dorset, Hampshire and Surrey in three weeks is quite a challenge; the real challenge is collecting them all between New Year and Twelfth Night. That's three working days!!!
As Rebecca said above, if this service interests you, then contact us in early autumn next year and we'll send you a 2008 price list.

What a difference a respray can make...

Rather than being a plain gloss colour, a lot of our latest planters are finished in matt metallic shades, which look great; a lot less plasticky (is that how you spell it?).

This looks just as good on more traditionally-styled planters, such as this Zenith planter, which is finished in a matt dark bronze, a perfect match for the brown leather furniture in this recently refurbished reception area in Salisbury.

Apart from our great range of competitively priced new fibreglass pots, we make extensive use of pots that have come back from old rental contracts, then been resprayed by the manufacturer, making them as good as new.

The reason for doing this? It's very economical! This display cost less than £70.00 + VAT; alternatively you could rent it for as little as £7.00 per month, which would include us looking after it for you. If you select the next size down of Zenith pot, we'll do it for even less!
So if you're in our coverage area (Dorchester, Bournemouth, Salisbury, Southampton, Portsmouth, Basingstoke and surrounding areas), and your office plants are in horrible old-fashioned pots, give us a call. You might be surprised how little it costs to upgrade!

Well, the team are well into Christmas now, preparing everything ready to install the Christmas Trees into clients' offices and receptions. This is an extra service that we offer to our clients alongside the office plants. We supply and decorate live and artificial Christmas Trees right around Dorset and Hampshire. Included in the service is collecting them before the twelfth night after Christmas. We are pretty full now with orders, but you are welcome to call to ask if there is any room to squeeze you in. If we are unable to help this year then bear us in mind for next year...put it in your diaries for 2008. It is best to contact us at the end of September or the beginning of October. Happy Christmas.

No Parking!

I recently installed seventeen plants at a health club in Guildford. The club had a problem with customers parking on the pavement right outside, so rather than having a line of ugly bollards, we put a line of six simple blue square pots planted with Chamaerops palms (my favourite outdoor palm) across the kerb..... and bolted them to the ground!

As I worked, the occasional customer arrived and gave me a very dirty look as I permanently cordoned off 'their' space - job done! Got a similar parking problem? Drop me a line!
