Find a gardener near you

Professional landscaping can help reinvent your outdoor space, boost your curb appeal and get a major return on investment with. Landscaping can encompass anything from adding new plants, trees and shrubs, to leveling the ground and laying sod for a lawn, to building in hardscaping such as sidewalks, water features or retaining walls. The national average landscaping price is $10,160. Landscaping prices can be far lower (with hourly rates ranging from $50 to $150) if you’re only seeking professional help with softscaping or seeking consultation on landscape design. Softscaping means adding or changing horticultural elements, such as planting a garden or adding a hedge. Hardscaping is where costs can really start to rise. Hardscaping requires labor and heavy equipment to excavate the earth; you may need to pour concrete, or you may need a pro who can transport and place gravel and other inorganic elements. Your total landscaping cost will vary based on the amount of work you want done, how much labor is required, and the cost of the materials you are using. A good rule of thumb for a major landscaping project, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects, is to budget 5 percent to 10 percent of the value of your home.

Administrators called in to Home & Garden Group

The garden centre chain Home & Garden Group is understood to have been placed into administration.

The action comes just a couple of weeks after documents were filed at Companies House relating to the administration of its sister company, Green Moon Plants Ltd.

The group owns the following nine garden centres, located across several counties:

– David’s Nurseries (Worcestershire)
– Floralands Garden Centre (Nottingham)
– Ise Garden Centre (Kettering)
– Leighton Buzzard Garden Centre (Bedfordshire)
– Plowmans Garden Centre (Dorset)
– Rutland Garden Centre (Leicestershire)
– Stansted Park Garden Centre (Hampshire)
– Shopwhyke Garden Centre (Chichester)
– Willington Home and Garden (Bedfordshire)

The company’s directors were David White and Karen Gill. Filings at Companies House show that Karen Gill has resigned as director of several businesses, including several of those listed above, between the 6th and 8th March, 2018.

David White had told trade publication Horticulture Week that trading had been ‘ok’ during January and ‘poor’ in February, adding that March sales had been affected by the ‘Beast from the East’.

29 March 2018

Leighton Buzzard Garden Centre is facing closure after the company that rescued it less than two years ago hit financial problems and called in administrators.

The popular Hockliffe Road centre was taken over by the Home and Garden Group (H&G) when site owners Martin and Stuart Hammond decided to retire.

Leighton Buzzard Garden Centre’s website announces the closing down sale

Now H&G, which leases the site, has informed its staff that the Leighton Buzzard operation and its nine other garden centres in the Midlands and the South (including Willington Home and Garden Centre near Bedford) have been put into administration. It’s understood financial issues were exacerbated by a prolonged winter and the late arrival of Spring.

Customers were emailed by the company on Friday announcing a “Closing sale now on”, with reductions in the price of all products.

It’s understood that London-based administrators Mazars are continuing trading on the H&G sites with a view to securing a sale of the business.

A spokesman for Martin and Stuart Hammond, who developed the family owned business after purchasing the then-derelict three-acre site in 1994, said: “As landlords, we are disappointed with the latest developments affecting the H&G activities on our business centre, which has been well supported by the local community since they took over our operations there in June 2016.

“We will continue to liaise with the H&G management and their administrators in their endeavours to maintain a viable ongoing business on the Leighton Buzzard site after what has been a difficult trading period for many similar businesses.

“Other business activities on the site, ranging from a children’s nursery to the popular aquatic centre and pet shop, are not affected by the H&G decision, and will continue trading as normal.”

Based at Upper Caldecote, near Biggleswade and founded in the 1960s, H&G, which negotiated a 15-year lease on the Leighton site, also operate a vast nursery facility, with around five million plants under cultivation at any one time – including around 600 varieties of roses – supplying products to a range of commercial outlets as well as to its own garden centres.

Back in 2016 when Home & Garden took on the lease, H&G director Karen Gill said: “We believe Leighton Buzzard fits comfortably into our horticultural portfolio. It has great potential which we hope to unlock by providing top quality products at very competitive prices.”

Gardening With Friends: Garden Clubs And Plant Societies

By Stan V. Griep
American Rose Society Consulting Master Rosarian – Rocky Mountain District

Along with seeking out great gardening websites like Gardening Know How as fantastic places to gain experience with your gardening, seek out local societies or clubs as well. There are usually some local gardening clubs and more specific plant societies or clubs to seek out.

If you love to grow African violets, orchids or roses, there is a local society of folks to join up with. There is usually a local gardening club as well that takes in all sorts of gardening interests. Seeking out and joining a local group has the appeal of being able to not only share your own knowledge but to learn some new ways of doing things, perhaps some of those special tips and tricks that make a garden the envy of the neighborhood!

Why Join a Gardening Club?

In any kind of gardening, there are things you can do and cannot do in the various growing zones. Some of the “cans” and “cannots” are related to climatic conditions while others are soil-related. Having a local group with knowledgeable fellow gardeners on board is worth more than any book on the shelves when it comes to local growing situations.

I enjoy several types of gardening, from veggies to wildflowers and annuals to roses and African violets. I even have a little interest in orchids due to family members raising them, as well as tending to a few herbs in my gardens. The various methods I use in my gardens here may not work so well in another area of the country or another part of the world.

There are also different bugs, fungi and molds to deal with in various areas. In some cases, those various pests can be extremely difficult to deal with and knowing the methods that work to control them best in your area is truly priceless information. Most of these groups have at least monthly meetings that are a mix of social time, business of the group and educational programs. Gardeners are some of the friendliest people around and the groups love to have new members.

Many of the specific plant groups are affiliated with larger parent organizations where there are usually even bigger pools of information to draw from. If you love roses, for instance, the American Rose Society is the parent organization of many rose societies all over the United States. There are national gardening associations that have local gardening clubs affiliated with them as well.

The gardening clubs have members with varied interests in gardening, so if you wanted to try your hand at raising some plant that you have always liked, you can obtain good information to get started right. Getting the right information to get off on the right foot with any type of gardening is invaluable. Solid information truly saves hours of frustration and disappointment.

For example, I have had many people over the years tell me it is just too hard to grow roses, so they gave up. Come to find out most of them had started out trying to get the cheaper big box store bagged roses to take off in their gardens. They were not aware of the root problems many of those rose bushes have from the beginning, thus when the rose bushes died they blamed themselves. Actually they had two strikes against them before they even started. It is information like this that a gardener can get from local knowledgeable plant societies or garden clubs. Information about how to best amend the soil for your gardens in your particular area can be obtained from these groups as well.

I highly recommend attending some meetings of local gardening groups in your area and see what they have to offer. Perhaps you have some great knowledge to share with a group too, and they really need someone like you. Being a member of such gardening groups is not only enjoyable but is also quite rewarding.

Gardening is good for you

According to the British Journal of Sports Medicine, gardening can lead to a longer life and provides valuable exercise particularly as we get older. Gardening is also said to increase happiness too.

Outdoor Living

We are spending more of our time outdoors! Spending on improvements to our outside space, on garden furniture and barbecues is on the increase.

5 Signs You Should Join a Garden Club

PhotoPlus Magazine/Getty Images

Here at Southern Living, we love gardens. We appreciate an outdoor space well designed. We’re constantly learning about gardens and people who love gardens, and that education extends to every corner of the botanical world. If you’re reading Southern Living, we bet you have a soft spot for gardens too. That’s why you should join a garden club.

No pressure, but we think you’ll love it.

We’re here to tell you that garden clubs are for everyone. Join with a friend or join on your own—you’re sure to meet plenty of like-minded gardeners and garden enthusiasts. Your local garden club organizes events, promotes the enjoyment of gardens, and supports conservation efforts in your hometown and state.

Did you know that today’s garden clubs got their start in the South? The first American garden club was founded in 1891 in Athens, Georgia. Garden clubs are as varied as their hometowns and host everything from flower shows to garden tutorials to community beautification projects. It’s about sharing knowledge, meeting fellow gardening enthusiasts, and learning something new. If that sounds like it’s right up your alley, find your local garden club today. You should seriously consider checking out a garden club if any or all of the following apply to you.

You have a green thumb.

If you are already a seasoned gardener, you are sure to find your niche in your local garden club. Garden club leadership will enlist your help hosting events and teaching gardening tutorials in no time.

You don’t have a green thumb.

Gardening novices are welcome too! Garden clubs are all about appreciating gardens, so the only prerequisite is the desire to enjoy garden spaces in all their shapes and sizes. If you love gardens and want to learn more, you should start making inquiries and visit a meeting of your local garden club.

You love to learn about gardening.

You may join your local garden club because you enjoy gardens, but you will be astonished at how much you learn when you attend events and get to know fellow garden club members. There is a vast accumulation of knowledge in garden clubs passed down from members through the years, and you’re sure to learn something new, whether it’s how to change the color of your hydrangeas or the best ways to fend off garden pests.

You care about conservation.

In recent years, garden clubs have helped to continue the conversation of environmental conservation. They offer educational programs, plan projects, and raise awareness about protecting the environment, including spearheading programs to combat the decline of pollinators and other significant issues that affect our gardens and our world.

You want to talk gardens with other garden-minded people.

Gardens bring people together. Join up, and you’ll have a whole club of new friends bound together by a love of gardens, gardening, and people who love gardening. In garden clubs, no matter what your gardening interests may be—from peonies to pollinators—you’ll find spaces to explore them and people to share them with.

And don’t forget the flower shows! Garden club flower shows are the highlights of every season. Don’t have a local garden club? Start your own or partner with the National Garden Clubs to plan your own projects.
