Winter Pansies debut at Garden Centre

Winter Pansies debut at Ferndale Garden Centre.

Seasonal plants loaded into a 4-cassette panel at Ferndale Garden Centre illustrate how seasonal plants can make a wall feature where plants can be swapped-out as they become available through the seasons.


Gardens take on a new direction – UP

Vertical gardening is trending.

GardenUp Greenwalls present a versatile system for growing on the ‘Up’ – a solution where space is limited but walls and railings are calling out for decorative wall dressing.

Our wall planters are cassettes – easily interchangeable, easy to maintain and so easy to install. From simple hand-watered units for culinary herbs, scented plants and colour panels, to self-regulating and sustainable Solar powered units that water automatically, and Aqua powered units that use fish water to feed the plants (the most ecologically-friendly version).

Schoolchildren debut their talents at GardenUp!

Several schools from Sheffield entered mini seed-tray gardens to a display in the Glasshouses in the Botanical Gardens specially for GardenUp.

These little glimpses of paradise illustrated whimsical design ideas and delighted visitors to the Show.

Prizes were awarded by the organisers, the Children’s University and the Friends of the Botanical Gardens. See the Children’s University blogspot on their link.

It is a great pleasure for us at GardenUp to have some of their work around the showgrounds where visitors will be able to sit in their unique gazebos.
