About Us

Last updated on January 3rd, 2021

Our site is reader supported, this means we may earn a small commission from Amazon and other affiliates when you buy through links on our site.

Welcome to my site, my name is John Moore and that’s me below looking at a beautiful Hydrangea bloom and I have been lucky enough to have worked in horticultural nurseries for around 15 over years before taking my knowledge and expertise online.

I now work full time on this website where we review the very best gardening products and tools and give honest reviews after hours of research and comparing different products.

We all write reliable gardening guides which covers everything from lawn care, pruning berberis. growing tomatoes and vegetables to the general growing guides.

Behind this site is a small team of actual real people who have all worked and has experience with the types of products we review as well as years of knowledge on the topics we cover from actual experience. All articles are checked by myself to make sure they are very best they can be.


As the founder and editor as well as researcher, I have a City and guilds horticulture horticultural qualifications and lots of experience and consider myself somewhat knowledgeable about all things plants and gardening but as all ways, I’m always learning and like to share what I have learnt with anyone who will listen or in the case of this website, read.

Below are two of my horticultural certificates I proudly dug up to display with pride.

I am also a web developer and online publisher and originally created this website to offer some information on one of my favourite plants ‘Pyracanatha’.

All though only a small site, in the beginning, it soon became very popular with 1000’s of people each month visiting the site. The site has since grown into a popular gardening site with product reviews and recommendation based on hours of research and now gets over 285,000 visitors each month during the busier months.

Check out the screen shot below of the visitors we for in May 2020 and we continue to grow.

What its all about now?

There is a lot of gardening advice online. Still, there is also a shortage of good gardening information for the UK, so I decided to turn my little site into the go-to place for gardening tips, product reviews, ideas and gardening guides from pruning roses to what to plant where and everything in between.

Our product reviews

This now includes our popular product roundup reviews and comparisons where we do hours of research, reading hundreds of product reviews and compare products to provide the very best models for each category or job.

We even go as far are buying many of the popular picks to be sure we recommend only good products. We now have over 200 product reviews so if your looking for a new gardening tool, don’t forget to check our site first.

The site is now growing fast and articles are added weekly and our main mission is to become one of the UK biggest and best gardening site.

We now also have lots of well researched, detailed reviews on the best gardening products from the best gardening gloves to the best garden shredders, lawnmowers, BBQ’s and everything in-between. We now even have reviews on different DIY tools which may be helpful if you’re into general DIY projects like myself.

I have also renovated several homes so when it comes to general DIY I also know a thing or to about this, although I’m no expert. Hopefully, what I have learnt and our research will help other people find the right information and products for them.

We hope to create, share, inspire and help others make the right decision when purchasing new garden tool and general work tools!

We have launched our new site!

We have recently launched our new website Fabpets.co.uk which reviews the best pet products from a dog kennel, automatic pet feeders, dog beds, GPS tracking collars, cat carriers and everything in between. If you can buy one for your pet, pet plan on researching and recommending the very best products so you don’t have to.

    I love the website John! You obviously love what you’re doing and you made me happy today. I’m not sure I’ve found the answer to put on my north facing wall yet, but I’ve learnt a lot, and just seeing a photo of someone enjoying plants has cheered me up. So many people these days have the wrong idea of ‘success’.

    Hi there,

    I’ve just seen your article on Christmas trees and wondered if you sell any mini or dwarf Christmas trees wholesale? Or know of nursery that does.
    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards
