All containers are new stock and the plants are fresh from the growing nursery and our professional staff are easily identified by their uniforms.

This regular servicing involves:

A technician at work using a 100 lite water trolley.

  • Ensuring the plants are healthy and in good condition
  • Replacing the plants if necessary
  • Maintaining the soil ph and moisture content
  • Watering (it is best only trained plant technicians service the plants as they understand the plant’s water requirements)
  • Rotating the plants as requested
  • Trimming, dusting and glossing the leaves as necessary
  • Keeping the containers clean and in good condition.

Depending on the plant and location, our plants can go for up to 3 weeks without attendance.  This relies on a sub-irrigation and suitable potting mix.
