Partners

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 gardening books where better is there to go than Amazon. For a more specific pointer, we have a bookshop.

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.

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.

You have to eat well – gardening burns a lot of calories – so do buy your food from Donald Russell and Pong Cheese. Yum!

Love Lula? We do, as they offer something unusual – vegan products. Our vegan friends need caring for to…

Home and office need a design spruce up? Try the fabulous Royal Design.

When you’re tired from a long day in the garden, we offer you a cup of tea… and a piece of chocolate!

And finally we partner with LED Hut for lighting…

Do make the most of these companies and use what they are offering!

Running Low

Sorry to people asking for some of our pruning tools, but we have run out of a few items and are waiting for more to arrive. I did a number of garden talks this week and demonstrated the quality of some of the tools. This led to a run which I hadn’t anticipated! So apologies again if you are missing out, but everything should be back in stock by next week. Many thanks for all your support here at Modern Mint! Darren

A Very British Garden – New Garden Talk For 2019

A brand new garden talk for 2019? My, what exciting news! Having had a busy summer, with the topiary work exploding after the Guardian article, I have plans to write a new garden talk for next year. So far I have written 6 different talks in the 4 years I have been running Modern Mint, 4 of which are still available for you to book. They are: What Do I Do With This Space? A garden talk that looks at how other cultures treat their outdoor spaces. A mixture of funny stories and practical advice, it shares techniques people from …
