THE MODERN MINT BLOG
We work with a number of other businesses that can help provide us with the items you want. We are a resource for gardening, after all…
For plants we we work with Jersey Plants Direct – they also offer free delivery on plants and we like that.
Cut flower queries allow us to send you to the Queen of the home grown flower growers art, Sarah Raven. Use this resource she provides!
For the computer we use we have partnered to work with Panda Security UK because you need anti-virus software to protect what you create.
Anything to do with ponds go to Pondkeeper.
For ecologically considered products we use Natural Collection. Please change how you shop and use them to.
Home and office need a design spruce up? Try the fabulous Royal Design.
And finally we partner with LED Hut for lighting…
Do make the most of these companies and use what they are offering!
