Window Lights are wonderful way to greet visitors to your house at Christmas, and here Andy Taylor reviews Konstsmide's contemporary and traditional range of Candlesticks, Welcome Lights and Silhouettes.
Our garden centre has been part of the local community for over 60 years, so when one of our partners, David Coton, received a request to donate a Christmas tree to a nearby hospice, he had no hesitation in helping them out.
The John Taylor Hospice was founded in 1910 and is located in Erdington, it currently provides care for over 600 people throughout the West Midlands.
This includes offering expert advice to families, community and day care as well as residential palliative care. Receiving more than two hundred referrals each month, the hospice has been in contact with over 10,000 patients during the past year.
David had personal experience of the hospice's services earlier in the year when his father received their expert care, so this gift meant a lot to him personally.
John Taylor has to channel all available money into caring for their patients, twenty four hours a day, every day of the year. With this costing a staggering £105,000 per week, there's none left over to afford a Christmas tree.
So we have donated the lovely 8ft Norway Spruce which now stands in the reception area. Now brightly decorated it will be seen by every visitor and patient who enters the building.
The tree gives the hospice a real festive feel which is greatly appreciated by everyone, and all their resources can continue to be concentrated on counselling, support and treatment.
If you are interested in donating or raising funds for the John Taylor Hospice, which is a 'not for profit enterprise', please go to their website where you'll find comprehensive information on their services.
Heating will be a deciding factor on the variety of plants you are able to grow in a greenhouse and the number of plants that can be kept over winter. Here, Robert Hall goes through the pros and cons of the different types of heating that are available.
