Pick-up-a-palm

Dear Southern-based landscapers and garden designers, (and everyone else that likes to travel)

I am keeping some 'living label' palms and olives at my holding nursery in Wimborne, Dorset. The idea is so that you or your customer can view the stock before you buy. Although some of the stock may only be in 10 litre pots, much larger specimens can be ordered from the same growers, with a quick turnaround.

I am able to deliver larger specimens, which can be seen on my website blog.…

How to Achieve a Better Work/Life Balance

Do you have a good work/life balance? How do we determine what constitutes a good work/life balance? Some people spend their entire life working on their business. As a result, they don’t have a good family life. Nothing but work has resulted in a bad marriage, a failing relationship with their kids, and no source of interest or pleasure outside from their everyday work. Work is their reality, nothing else. On the other hand, some people choose to have a more balanced life. For them, it’s…
