Staying in touch in difficult times
Recent developments in the Coronvirus situation mean many of us are worried about our loved ones
Even if we are fit and well ourselves, we all know people who are more vulnerable, whether it's those over 70, those with existing medical conditions or those working at the front line helping to treat and care for those already affected. In difficult times our friends and family are even more important, but if you can't see them or if you are trying to protect each other by staying away, then other forms of communication become even more important. Government guidelines are encouraging people to use technology to stay in touch remotely and Facetime and other video calls are a great way to stay connected. Sending plants, cards and other gifts are also a wonderful way to show you care.

Whether it's something cheerful to brighten the spirits indoors or a plant for the garden we've got plenty to choose from and our team and our couriers are taking precautions to ensure that we can deliver as safely as possible including delivering to a designated safe spot or doorstep if that helps. We're taking extra steps to avoid infection at our nursery and all our plants are packed by a small team of very careful plant lovers.
