25 days until Christmas Eve - no comment!

ONLY 6 DELIVERY DAYS LEFT...

This is it, we are nearly there... the final countdown, advent calendars are opening - preparations are underway and containers greened up, vases trimmed, table decorations on the webshops, candles have been counted and all is calm....??? And maybe not!!! We feel waaaay behind and at the moment feels like Christmas is not happening especially in light of the 'masks' back on message of the last few days. Coupled with the storms we have had and the torrential rain its no wonder the customers are not coming out to shop! BUT IT WILL HAPPEN - it always does and it's always at last the minute. Keep Calm & Carry On!

Get ahead as far as you can and make up as many grab and go 'present solutions' for those late shoppers. It is a long haul the Christmas run up and we have been properly 'doing' Christmas products now for four weeks - it is no wonder we are tired of Noble pine and bags of moss! BE POSITIVE & HAVE COURAGE You've got this and YOU CAN DO IT !!

15 days until A DAY OFF! - YIPPEE!

VERY EXCITED to announce that we have another Cornish grower on board!! Bottlebrush, Cornus red & Green, Pittosporum and Parvi are now on the menu. This grower has been cultivating foliages since 1958 and now the 4th generation of family have taken over the business; we are really looking forward to working with this new supplier from the lush growing zone that is the South West of the British Isles.
