Sussex Gardening Services

Why us?

We’re proud to say that we’ve removed harsh, environmentally damaging chemicals from our range of treatments. All products are now organic, and meet high standards for sustainability.

In our climate we must adapt to the ever changing world. We may have to change materials, resources, plants and methods of gardening here in the UK.

But there is a lot to be grateful for and to look forward to. In the UK we are lucky to be able to grow a lot of different varieties hardy enough to withstand our unstable and uncertain winters. Now it’s time to bring in the new age of plants, the ones that will adapt to our journey as humans grow to respect the environment.

Plant of the Moment

Here we feature plants that have caught our attention recently.

This is sorbus aucuparia ‘autumn spire’, a fabulous tree which has an upright growth habit.

A deciduous tree with simple or pinnate leaves and clusters of small white flowers in spring, then followed by yellow berries which contrasts amazingly with the autumn firework show in autumn.
