It is virtually impossible to write a brief summary of fertilisation requirements and nutrient deficiency with regards trees. The subject could amount to a 300 page book with regards one species and still be non exhaustive. It is however one of those issues which any arborist or silvicultural surveyor needs to understand at a glance and as with so many aspects of tree care this combines experience with a knowledge of the location. As such based on my experience and the locations I have…Continue

In exterior design water has always played a vital role, and literally so – vital as in ‘life’. The very earliest gardens we know of were devised as ways of providing access to water which was also used to grow trees for shade. In the otherwise hostile desert environments of ancient Persia and the Middle East these were rare paradises, shelter from the arid and dusty desert.
Green-tech are currently looking for Northern England, Midlands and Southern England Area Sales Managers to service the Horticultural Market place.

Mrs G from Botesford near Scunthorpe ,North Lincolnshire contacted Peak Surfacing recently,with a old concrete driveway which was in urgent need of resurfacing. Due to the thickness of the concrete,a mechanical excavtor would have to be brought to site to break it up , but Mr and Mrs G didnt want the mess that excavtion would cause.They had recently watched Peak Surfacing install a resin bound surface a few doors down,and were impressed with the finished surface.

Today I was handed a sprig of mimosa in advance of International Women's week beginning March 8th (apparently this is a tradition but I've not heard of it). Co-inciding with the warmest day of the year so far here in Southampton - it's 15 deg out in the sun - it reminds me that spring is (almost) here. Certainly it feels like the first true day of spring whatever the calendar says. Shrubs like these that flower at this time of year are valuable and delicate - the mimosa generally needs a…Continue

The harsh winter is continuing to take its toll on synthetic sports surfaces across the country. Mistakenly labelled as ‘all-weather’, many facilities have been all but unusable during the recent snowfall, with some still experiencing problems even after the snow had thawed.
If maintained correctly, a synthetic sports surface should be playable in most weathers. However, the one element that such facilities cannot necessarily withstand is a drop in temperature and the…Continue
