A New Venture!

Last week the hard working staff at How Green finished a project to rejuvenate a prominent bed in Caterham on the Hill in Surrey. Working with the town’s parish council, we scrubbed out the tired, old shrubs and bedding. The brief was a complicated one!

Falling for Fall in Canada and North America

It’s been a little quiet on these pages for a few weeks, as we’ve been off on our holidays! With a passion for horticulture running through our veins, the lure of the Autumn spectacular abroad was too much! Two weeks in September/October were spent ‘leaf peeping’ in New England in America and the Quebec and Ontario regions in Canada. In an amazing stroke of luck, the colour was seen at it’s peak and in certain parts of Canada, it was

It Never Ends!

Potting up already underway for 2013 season. No sooner has one selling season finished, preperations are in full swing to boost next years stock levels! Our staff are working flat out and our potting machine a blur, as tens of thousands of perennials are potted into 1 and 2 litre pots. Most of these plants started life as rooted cuttings back in June and have subsequently been reared in a ‘liner’ pot. With most of these liners rooted through, we can now
