Winter Gardening

You might think that there’s nothing to do in the garden during the Winter as deciduous trees have lost their leaves, perennials have died back and many plants are looking quite sad. In fact, it’s a really important time for looking after what you have, as well as preparing your garden for the Spring and Summer.

2022 – Our Pledge to Plant More Trees

Following in the footsteps of Her Majesty the Queen’s initiative to ‘Plant a Tree for the Jubilee’, GreenArt is also making 2022 The Year of the Tree. With the help of our customers and their gardens we have made a pledge to plant 2,022 trees over the next 12 months.

Top Garden Tips For May

May signals the start of a really exciting time in the garden. Every day brings new life to celebrate as new colours burst on the scene in our gardens, woodlands, countryside and hedgerow. In particular I love the incredible range and vibrance of the greens that are emerging and the way the vivid limes set off the subtle blues and purples, especially in our woodlands.
