WELCOME TO SIGNAL BOX PLANTS & GARDENS
Signal Box Plants & Gardens
National Garden Scheme (ngs.org.uk)
We are happy to advise that one of our customers ( Home Harm, Ryhall ) will be opening their gardens as part of the National Garden Scheme on Sunday 20th June 10am-5.00pm.
We have recently taken on some wonderful gardens, all very different in style and character but with a common theme running through them all of a lifelong love of plants and gardening by their owners. We look forward to help make sure that these gardens continue to flourish.
After a successful trial period we have taken on a trainee gardener who will be given both in-house and RHS training. Joey will attend some customers with us and we look forward to seeing her career develop.
With the continued high level of demand for our services we continue to look for a gardener to join our team. An enthusiasm for gardening is an absolute must whilst experience and formal training are a bonus they should not prevent anyone with a love of plants and gardens to apply.

Will & Rebecca
After a successful career in textiles and clothing spanning more than 3 decades, a series of fortunate events, led Will to begin offering garden maintenance services in the area in and around Stamford. The proceeds were to go towards the restoration of his newly acquired, historic, railway signal box adjacent to Stamford Station. The occasional bit of weeding borders quickly turned into a full time occupation of fully encompassing garden development, upkeep and care for an ever expanding customer base. Now, some 4 years later, the business has expanded, not only in its services, but last year, saw Rebecca joining the team. She brings with her an infectious enthusiasm, passion for gardens, an artistic eye derived from her background in fashion design and an ever expanding plant knowledge. Thus, Signal box plants and gardens was formed.
Making your garden flourish is our core activity. We have built up a reputation for reliable, conscientious and creative work, keeping all aspects of your garden looking beautiful throughout the gardening year.
We use professional standard equipment and are fully insured.
One of the benefits of working in an environment through the seasons is that you acquire an understanding of the spirit of the garden. The more time spent carrying out important basic tasks allows you to experience the rhythms and idiosyncrasies that combine to create unique conditions in every space. Observing the natural elements and how they affect the growing conditions over a prolonged period enables us to make assessments and recommendations for developments to improve; individual or group positional planting, quality and variety of plant stock, planting plans and border design set within the context of the overall aesthetic.
Our customers trust us to innovate using our creativity and knowledge to realise the agreed vision for their garden.
One of life`s great pleasures is taking cuttings and nurturing that new growth into a flourishing plant. We aim to propagate and then offer a small number of perennials in a wide selection of varieties. Locally grown and initially offered exclusively to our customers. We hope to start plant sales to the public in 2021.
