116 years of experience!

A list of all my staff's employment start dates passed across my desk recently, and it set me thinking. I sat and worked out how many years experience of caring for office plants we had between us, and it adds up to one hundred and sixteen years!

This is of course meaningless without knowing how many of us there are doing the job: nine people, so that equates to an equally impressive (almost) thirteen years experience each! Added to which, none of us have spent less than six years in the industry at present. As far as I am aware, no other office plant company can come close to this average level of experience.

What does all this mean to potential and existing clients? Well, although our new starters (if I remember rightly...) receive a very thorough four weeks of training, caring for office plants is a job that can only be completely mastered by doing it for a few years, so this is one reason why the standard of our maintenance service is second to none.

Hanging basket time - don't delay!

We usually deliver our summer hanging baskets at the end of May. Now the weather has suddenly turned summery (it's 28 deg C already in my office in the greenhouse!) we expect the phone to start ringing as all our clients' thoughts turn to their workplaces' outdoor spaces at once...
The snag is that hanging baskets need a little time to 'grow on', in order that they are delivered with some flowers already in evidence, so if you want baskets for the end of the month, you need to order now.
Email me or ring the office, and we'll send you an order form. As a guide price, our most popular size of basket (16" diameter) retails at £29.00 + VAT, which includes delivery in our usual coverage area! You can specify colour, and plant mixture as required, and please note that we also provide and plant window troughs, summer bedding etc.
