We are a family living in St Albans, we all went to school here and have a large garden where we grow our own vegetables and flowers.  After having a great time  working for a firm of chartered surveyors in Central London, we have decided to build a business around our great passion for gardening.  It is hard work, especially in the winter, after clearing the leaves, you turn around and they are back again!  When the summer arrives and the flowers are out, what a fantastic feeling, when the gardens all look lovely it is wonderful.  I hope more people will allow us to bring this feeling to them too.
