2023 Update: Behind the scenes we have been busy busy working Matthew Pottage (the youngest-ever curator of the Royal Horticultural Society's Wisley gardens) to develop an all new plant support for one of the National Plant Collections held at Wisley. This collaboration has pushed us to design a completely new form of plant support not like any other.
Today we have received confirmation from the intellectual Property Office, that the designs have now been fully protected, so we will soon be ready to reveal the new design, which has been developed to be useful both in the borders and in plant pots! Watch this space...
2022 Update: More Grande George Belles for RHS Wisley to be delivered this Spring.
2021 Update: A new delivery of 'Grande' Belles arrived at the lovely RHS Gardens at Rosemoor in January, this month we will be delivering 11 new Grande George Belles to the Wisley Gardens to support Hydrangeas. Need to make time for a new photo shoot this Summer...
2020 update - An army of 23 'Special' George Belles marched off to the RHS Wisley Gardens this week. Their job is to support a lovely collection of Peonies around for the edges of the woodland gardens. I hope to go and get pictures soon before the Belles are buried in a mass of foliage and colour. Good luck George.
2019 update - Easter weekend saw the delivery more Plant Belles for the RHS gardens.
Including the NEW 'Grande' Plant Belles, to both the RHS Wisley and Rosemoor gardens. The perfect testing ground for the new designs. The Belles will be put to the challenge by the garden teams, in advance of the BIG launch at Chelsea Flower Show 2019.

2018 update - Wisley Gardens: Plant Belles are growing in numbers in the borders at RHS Wisley Gardens. Back in 2014 Wisley's curator Matthew Pottage and his team began using the Gertrude and Christopher Belles to support Peonies and Sedums along busy walkways, to keep the plants standing to attention, looking their best for the visitors. This year we delivered another batch of Plant Belle supports, with more requested for 2019!
2016 update - Belle Towers at Rosemoor Gardens: Plant Belles have been supporting plants in the gardens at RHS Rosemoor gardens since 2013. Since then the Belle collection has grown in size year on year. With a new commission this January, for 8 special Belle Towers installed into huge terracotta Whichford pottery pots for climbing roses in the 'Rose Garden' and 10 more George Belles installed later in the year.
2014 update - Plant Tunnels at Harrlow Carr: We were very proud to supply Harlow Carr with a number of our large 4ft Tunnels to protect the planting in the kitchen gardens in North Yorkshire.

Jon and his team have installed over 100 ‘Plant Belle’ plant supports in the gardens nr Torrington, Devon.
