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.

Fertilisers & Plant Health

We’ve put together a range of organic products to help you grow plants better.  These include plant stimulators like FB, rooting compound like Root!t and a useful Garlic Wash product to help plants resist pests. We also have our own range of Mycorrhiza products, RootBooster, that help new plants and trees get established. Mycorrhiza are basically fungi that set up a beneficial collaboration with the plant roots – they are much better at absorbing Phosphate than the plants are and exchange it for some of the plant’s sugar output.

How we do business – the large print

We already run a sizeable on line business (plants4presents.co.uk) which ships nearly three thousand plants a year.  So we know all about customer service and picking couriers who are reliable.  We will normally turn round your order within 24 hours (we’ll email you if we can’t) and ship by first class post or courier if the value is over £30.  The prices quoted are before VAT and shipping . We  charge you a flat rate of £4 if the item weighs less than 1 kg and £7 if its more. If you have any problems at all you can ring 0845 094 0407 – this is a local rate call from landlines.  We are here from 8am – 6pm  on weekdays and it will be one of us that answers the phone – not a call centre.
