WELCOME TO SIGNAL BOX PLANTS & GARDENS
Signal Box Plants & Gardens
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, Joey has joined the company as a trainee gardener. Joey will continue to attend some customers under supervision and has now started her RHS studies.
Training Program in 2022
It is planned to expand the training program in 2022. If a career in horticulture interests you then get in touch now for an initial chat about the opportunities available next year.
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 and around Stamford. The proceeds were to go towards the restoration of his historic railway signal box adjacent to Stamford Station. The occasional bit of weeding borders quickly turned into a full time occupation encompassing garden development, upkeep and care for an ever expanding customer base.
Fully established over several years now the plans for the future include offering opportunities and training to the next generation of horticulturalists as well as an exciting garden restoration which will lead to community and commercial projects starting in 2022.
Making your garden flourish is our core activity. We have built up a reputation for reliable, conscientious and creative work, keeping your garden looking beautiful throughout the gardening year. Specialist lawn care packages are available on request.
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 2022.

A career in horticulture
The business is committed to supporting the next generation of horticulturists. 2021 saw the first trainee join the company receiving both supervised on the job training as well as being sponsored to study the industry standard RHS Diploma in the Principles and Practices of Horticulture Level 2 course.
In 2022 the intention is to expand the training program with opportunities for new candidates to join the team. Initial informal applications are being welcomed for the rest of this year.
