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.

Propagation kits and tools

Propagation is a key tool of the intelligent gardener. It allows you to create new plants from your existing ones by effectively cloning them.

YOu simply take a cutting spanning in most cases a few nodes, make sure there’s not too much transpiration by reducing the leaves and put it into some compost (or the ground if the time is right) and let nature do it’s stuff by producing new roots – possibly helped along a bit by some of the items here.

We have a whole range of products to help – some of them are here.

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.
