Get Planting to Improve your Environment

Get Planting to Improve your Environment 

During the COVID-19 upheaval we thought it would be a good idea to give you all some practical advice and artistic inspiration to improve your environment. Some of you will be unable to get into the office or marina at the moment, but our free planting guide can help you plan what needs to be done and perhaps you can get started on some of the ideas whilst you're cooped-up at home.

Look around for your local plant nurseries who will be struggling at this time and have plants they don't want to put on the compost heap. Generally, they will be able to deliver.

The guide will walk you through the best plants for various places and give some top tips on improving the environment in your office and around your marina, encouraging flora and fauna that can help with both the appearance and function of your surroundings.

A big 'Thank you' to all of the companies below who have helped put this mini brochure together. Click any of the photos above to read the leaflet. Stay safe and look out for each other. Remember, 'Social Distancing' is a bit of an oxymoron, what we need now, more than ever before, is 'social closeness' and 'physical distancing'.

For more ideas about which plants to use check out these Plant Lists - kindly provided by Dave Hill, Head Gardener with Dean Reddyhoff Marinas.
