Green Fingers at Sea….

Well all this sunshine we have been having lately has really inspired me to get my scruffs on,  dig out my trowel and get stuck in to my garden .

I have lived in my house for nearly two years now,  it is a new build property so we all know that the soil or should i say clay and rocks isn’t always the most accommodating when it comes to nurturing plants in your flower beds. I am very proud of what i have achieved so far and the garden is starting to come alive with colour now that summer is upon us.

The up keep of the flowers and my lovely hanging baskets can be a lot of hard work and commitment but it all pays off in the end and can actually be quite therapeutic after a hectic day of selling cruise holidays.


If like me you love your gardening and are a bit of a green fingers then have you ever considered combining your passion of plants with your love of cruising.

If so then you should really think about booking one of our exclusive garden cruises. We have been selling these specialist Garden cruises for years now and they are always hugely popular.

They consist of cruising and guest speakers and visits to some beautiful gardens of the world.

We have worked with a whole host of famous gardeners over the years and this year sets to be an even bigger treat with this one being set up to celebrate 50 years of the TV show Gardeners World.
