Here are some useful gardening-related links:

The Royal Horticultural Society

The Royal Horticultural Society is the UK’s leading gardening charity dedicated to advancing horticulture and promoting good gardening.

Our goal is to help people share a passion for plants, to encourage excellence in horticulture and inspire all those with an interest in gardening.

The Garden Centre Association

Many of the country’s leading garden centres belong to the Garden Centre Association and each one has to achieve a high level of good business practice before they can be accepted as an Approved Member. To ensure that high standards are maintained, each garden centre is inspected annually.

The Horticultural Trades Association

The Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) is the trade association for the UK garden industry. It is dedicated to helping develop the industry and its member businesses, including most garden centres and other garden retailers, growers, landscapers, manufacturers and suppliers.

(Gardening Services)

Do you think it odd that we should include a window cleaning company on a gardening services website? The reason is that CRC Window Cleaning is a company set up by Rob Gilhooley – the previous proprietor of Betta Gardens – when he decided to get married and emigrate to Australia!

CRC do actually provide gardening services as well as window cleaning – and to the same high standards as Betta Gardens did when he was in charge – and still do now!

Rob says gardening down under is a bit different from here in the UK – you’ve got to keep a good eye open for the many breeds of spider that live out there – some of which are poisonous. Still, whoever said gardening was easy?!
