RHS Flower Show Tatton Park
From unveiling our first exhibition garden in over twenty years to winning several awards, it’s safe to say that RHS Flower Show Tatton Park was a highlight of the year!
Our ‘Chained to Tech’ garden, designed by award-winning garden designer Rachel Platt, was a big focus for us this year. Our team worked hard behind the scenes to get the garden looking as fabulous as it did, from growing plants in our warehouses to an all-hands-on-deck operation for set-up.

We had amazing feedback from customers old and new, and it was amazing to see the designs come to life after months of planning.

Inspired by cottage gardens, the aesthetic design could easily be replicated in your own garden. Winning 4 out of 5 stars, the garden was a success and got positive reviews from customers too.

Micro-decluttering, or the art of sorting through clutter in your home in 10 or 15 minute increments, has become quite popular in recent years, and for good reason.
These days, home renovation projects are often discussed in terms of your return on investment or how quickly a project can speed up the selling process. It’s widely agreed upon that renovating a kitchen or bathroom is typically a financially responsible choice if you plan to sell because these projects typically see a great return in the form of a higher sale price—or a quicker sale.
How do you know exactly when it's time to clean your home or take on an organizing project? It turns out that many common signs indicate that your home has seen better days and needs a little care, experts say.
School is out for winter break, and if you're a college student, hopefully that means you’ve adjusted to dorm life a bit. This rite of passage marks a step toward independence and adulthood, and it can bring up a lot of emotions. But there are ways to ease this sometimes difficult transition, even if the first few months weren’t quite what you hoped for—and making sure your living space is one that you really love can help out a ton.
Even for the most organized, attempting to declutter our homes isn't always something we look forward to. While we may feel at ease having cleared surfaces and polished presentation, decluttering isn't everyone's strong suit.
January is the perfect time to get organized and give your home a mini refresh ahead of a deeper spring clean. We can't get enough of all the ways we plan to tackle this exact thing come 2024.
Before you list your home for sale, you must be aware of all its potential problems. Major and minor issues inevitably crop up on inspection reports, and fixing the big ones (and some of the small ones) will help you get your money’s worth on a home.
