Fletching Glasshouses

One of the delights of social media is that it’s quite easy to incorporate information from one place into another. Our vegetable production arm has its own web site which is all about Organic Vegetables in East Sussex. It has its own blog that updates the details of what’s available when with information about what else is going on at the nursery. So thanks to the wonders of the internet you don’t have to go looking for it – you can find it here.

Why we started the Intelligent Garden

I first started gardening as a research student working on how plants grow. Then we bought a small holding in Shropshire for a while before we discovered computers and marketing. 20 years later we started selling plants on-line.

Expansion meant we needed premises - so we acquired a nursery with 2 acres of glasshouse and started growing organic vegetables again. By September 2008 we had our soil association certification and had started selling biological controls online.

Talking to people on farmer's markets I sense a real hunger for people to garden and produce their own food. And a real interest in local and pesticide free produce.

So we created the Intelligent Garden ito help you get the most from your garden by offering the knowledge, products and advice you need to work effectively with nature to release the intelligence in your garden.

urban renewal through community gardening at #rhshampton

Well it’s been a long week at the show and I’ve not been able to do much blogging because we’ve been so busy on the stands adding people on their lemon trees,handing out free feed and selling lots,of kaffir limes and chillies.

However one of the things that really interests is what the keynote theme is going to be.

Last year it was grow your own with a whole pastiche of doing your own farming and propagating a vision of an older, kinder, gentler landscape.

This year however we’re altogether more down to earth by focusing on the […]

Our Amazon Feedback

I’ve finally discovered how to embed the Amazon Feedback page into the site so in a spirit of modest pride I thought I’d share it with you here. We take our customers needs seriously and if there’s a problem we’re pretty quick to sort it out as some of the kind comments show. We’ve always found that you can have all the marketing you like but if you don’t look after the customers pretty soon you won’t have a business. […]

Visit to Lowaters rainwater recycling open day

I know this is only of general interest for those of you gardening at home, but it’s fascinating to me how quickly the mainstream world is moving in the direction of environmental awareness and behaviour.

As I may have mentioned before, I spent most of the last winter interviewing professional growers about their workforce practices. You can find out the details of that here if it interests you. One of the companies I interviewed was Lowaters. One of their directors, Charles Carr was also carrying out a project – this one on water recycling.

You see the water industry has […]
