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.

For garden products we work with Garden Trading, Harrod Horticultural and Agriframes (who do frames for the garden, of course…)

Anything to do with ponds go to Pondkeeper.

Mowers and lawn care products can be found here at Rolawn, Lawn Mowers UK and Mow Direct.

For ecologically considered products we use Natural Collection. Please change how you shop and use them to.
