At the heart of all that we do is a desire to make a difference to that which is visible. This includes stunning floral arrangements, tidy towns and villages, and calm, peaceful communities. But these are only outward signs of something deeper, something true.
Because, what is invisible matters too. How we work, what our products, seen and unseen, do. How what we offer fits into a much, much bigger picture about what is good for us all.
What is the point of a business that benefits only a few? We live in a culture where everything in our world – social, political, economic, environmental – is now pointing to the realisation that sustainability at every level depends on businesses and communities and third sector agencies working together for the benefit of everyone – indeed, for the benefit of the planet.
How do we know this? Because at the heart of our business is conversation. And through conversation, collaboration and working together we can respond to the needs and challenges that the world presents us. Conversation and collaboration are the raw materials of innovation – and it is through innovation that real differences are made.
You can read more of our story by clicking on the milestones below. But, actually, what matters is your story. How between us we can work together to find solutions to what matters to you, how that matters to your community, and how in turn that matters to the world.
Join us! For the good of everyone.

Ripon Racecourse is a thoroughbred horse racing venue in North Yorkshire. The venue holds regular flat racing events throughout the season and has a reputation as ‘Yorkshire’s Garden Racecourse’.
The very first meeting at the current Ripon Racecourse site took place over 100 years ago, on 6th August 1900. Known as Yorkshire’s ‘Garden Racecourse’, Ripon has been named ‘Best Small Racecourse in the North’ by the Racegoers Club several times over the last few years.
The location, surroundings and size of projects may vary, but one thing unites all of the councils, Britain in Bloom groups and businesses that we supply self-watering containers to: their desire to improve the visual appearance of their area.
