  • How Do I Add Height to My Garden?

    Adding height to your garden can be achieved in many ways and offers more than a solution to the problem of limited space. It also provides an excellent opportunity to create individuality and draw the eye to features or individual plants, which in turn can be enjoyed looking their best with their heads above the crowd.
  • Easter means Potatoes at Agriframes

    Tradition dictates that we get our first potato crop planted on Good Friday at Agriframes - this year we are making real efforts to reduce plastic and single use products in the garden with Vigoroot potato planters.
  • Ready for Action

    After a few false starts, Spring is definitely underway in the Agriframes garden – the birds are singing a different tune, daffodils are in full flower and buds are appearing all around.
