Overview Supply and maintenance of office plants for an extensive range of offices within two buildings at this location. We have looked after plants for this client for almost 30 years, having moved buildings with them twice over this period in which time they have expanded from an Edinburgh New Town Georgian building with about 50 employees and 15 plants to a new modern office building with over 800 staff and some 250 planters of varying shapes and sizes.
Judges’ comments The maintenance of the client’s eclectic collection of up to 250 plants accumulated over several years, requires perseverance and good horticultural skills. The plants are regularly moved by office staff from the optimum positions selected by the contractor into areas of poor light, and they also suffer from over watering as a result of discarded drinks. Nevertheless, they survive against all odds and are in remarkably good health, thanks in no small part to the skill of the contractor.
