WELCOME TO SIGNAL BOX PLANTS & GARDENS
Signal Box Plants & Gardens
As proclaimed by Local Living Magazine in their April issue, and it`s true!
We are embarking on some fantastic projects this year which include a community garden in the village of Barnack. Take a look at our new dedicated Facebook and Instagram pages (coming soon) for this project as we are keen to hear from volunteers who would like to be involved. Our wish is for the space to be a place for everyone, whether it`s just to sit and think, have a chat with new found friends, learn about traditional crafts or to get your hands dirty in one of our trial gardens.
Later in the year we will be designing and implementing a working kitchen garden design project for a client who will be opening a local village hub of pub/restaurant/village store.
With these projects and new customers coming on board we are looking for a new member to join the team. An enthusiasm for gardening is a great starting point so if you are interested take a look at the Careers page or just get in touch via the Contact page for an initial chat.
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.
