    "We're really pleased with the excellent work done by your crew. They were fast, efficient and easy to work with. Our garage is not flooding for the first time in six years thanks to the new down spout and paintwork."

    When you buy new plants or flowers, or decide to do some weeding, make sure you're not damaging the plants that are already there! Read up on how to protect your flowers and plants before you start to do any gardening:

I have found that many plants don't like abrupt changes and if you acclimate them, over a period of time to changes in light, exposure to the elements, water or temperature, they are generally happier. This is particularly important with young plants and is essential for most plants that have spent their lives in the pampered climate of a greenhouse.
