Allotment care (including greenhouse maintenance)

The preparation work involved on an allotment can easily become daunting. The initial excitement and enthusiasm can soon disappear. The preparation work is often under estimated. Here are just some of the jobs I can help you with your allotment:

  • Autumn digging of the plot to allow the winter frosts to break down the soil
  • Seedbed preparation in Spring
  • Debris and weed removal
  • Application of Mulch (50-75mm thick)
  • Planting and Crop rotation advise
  • Raised bed care
  • Thinning of seedlings
  • Watering during your holidays
  • General maintenance of your allotment


Apartments, balconies, containers and smaller spaces

Sometimes a little inspiration can go a long way to help bring an apartment balcony to life.  Whether you've just moved to the city or you have been there for a while, remember that a little green could really enhance your apartment. Container gardening is a great solution for the budget-minded looking for a getaway within their own homes - it's easy, inexpensive and fun.

Paul Thomas Gardening Services offer help and advice on window boxes, planters or just simple flowerpots that you place on windowsills, terraces and even kitchen counters for the busy city professional. I will help you decide what to grow, dependent on your facing direction and related conditions. Container gardens fit into the busiest lifestyle because they reduce the hassles of gardening and bring tranquillity to such an important space.



Seasonal Hanging Baskets

Hanging baskets of flowers add colour to patios, balconies, porches, and apartment stairwells.  I will prepare the right hanging basket for you, taking into account your preference for plants, colour and choice of basket design.
Remember, it does not matter how small your garden space is. It matters that you are given the right help and advise to make it a beautiful and worthwhile place for you to enjoy.
