Coronavirus: CLOSED (Temporarily)!

Just a quick update regarding my services and COVID-19:-

I have decided to PAUSE my business in support of the NHS and for the safety of my customers and myself.  The guidance from the government is not definitive, but the message is very clear:

If you are not crucial to the fight against Coronavirus – STAY AT HOME!

It saddens me to have to do this, but I have the utmost respect for everyone who is putting themselves at risk, and working tirelessly to fight this disease, and I hope to restart again soon.

On a positive note, it looks like everyone is embracing their gardens, and hopefully falling-in-love with gardening again.  We have been fortunate to have had some amazing weather at the moment, and we can now all catch-up on those jobs we have been meaning to do for ages.

Stay Safe everyone, happy gardening, and THANK YOU to all the key workers, in particular the NHS and care workers! x



VE Day! (May 8th) – Friday

Instead of taking place on Monday (4 May),  May Day (this year) will be on Friday (8 May), to mark VE Day itself (Victory in Europe Day).

Therefore, as many people as possible will have the opportunity to remember and honour our heroes of the Second World War.  It will be the 75th Anniversary of World War II, and it may be the last chance for many of us to say THANK YOU to the WW2 veterans (now in their 90’s), while they are still alive.  A very special day indeed!  Unfortunately, this has now been tainted by the Corona Virus outbreak, but I hope we can still afford some time to show our respects.

It is common practice for people in France to give each other a posy of Lily-of-the-valley today…….. for Good Luck, and as a symbol of Spring!

Sounds like a lovely idea.

Why not give it a go:  Pop them in a glass jar (with some twine wrapped around it.  Leave them for your elderly neighbours……Happiness in a jar.  A perfect THANK YOU!   x
