Generator Creative Consultants

To some we’re creative designers with a sharp commercial perspective. To others, we’re strategic advisors and problem solvers. Often we’re there for our clients to help them achieve specific targets or objectives. For many, we fulfil all of these roles.

Whilst our clients come to us for unique solutions to their unique communications challenges, what they all have in common is the desire to work with a consultancy that can help them define, express, and interpret what’s different and special about them culturally, commercially and competitively.

It’s also reassuring to know you’re working with people who recognise that, whilst perhaps certain problems are new to you, they are not always new to us and because of this we have the experience to help you identify and avoid potential problems. Whether working within your existing brand, developing and evolving it, or creating a new brand, we always look to go beyond the brief and exceed your expectations.

The skills our team members bring to your project have been honed over years – creative solutions applied with methodical care, and a sharp eye for detail.

Of course, the ultimate judge of our work is your audience, and by keeping this fact front of mind, we continue to achieve real success for our clients.

    Gardening Hints & Tips – January & February 2022

    Written by John Boon (Burpham Gardening Club)

    January & February 2022

    Congratulations to the following overall winners at the Autumn Show, Peter Cox who won the Chairmans Cup for Fruit and Vegetables, Morriss Kemp who won the Fowler Trophy for Flowers and Elizabeth Cox who won the J & J cup for the Cookery classes.

    At our meeting on January 25th, Peter Almond will be giving a talk on ‘Gardening for Wildlife’ and on February 22nd Vincent Gradwell will be taking us on tour of the ‘Canary Islands in Spring’. I wish you all a successful year in your garden and that you will grow plenty of entries for our shows.

    Things to do in the garden in January.

    • If you cannot garden because the soil is rain sodden or frosted you can use your time by studying plant  catalogues which have arrived in the post on a regular basis.

    …remember that this year’s novelty seeds are likely to be next year’s ordinary seeds.

    • The same advice applies as when ordering spring flowering bulbs, the larger the plants you buy the better they will be when planted out in May. If you only need a few plants it would probably be better to visit a local nursery such as Elm Nursery at Sutton Green in May where you can select your plants first hand.
    • New seed varieties which are usually F1 Hybrids are expensive to buy and often difficult to germinate, so look on the back of the packet to see how many seeds you are buying for your money, remember that this year’s novelty seeds are likely to be next year’s ordinary seeds.
    • Whilst the fruit buds are still dormant Apple and Pear trees can be pruned, cut out any congested growth to increase airflow which will improve the quality of next seasons fruit, cut back to a fruit bud which is large and rounded on older growth, one year old shoots should be pruned back to a slender bud.

    Things to do in the garden in February.

    • Plunge shrivelled Dahlia tubers into a bucket of tepid water overnight, having  removed any rotten tubers, they can then be started into growth to provide cuttings for new plants, place the tubers in a seed tray or pot and lightly cover with damp soil.
    • Slow germinating annuals such as Antirrhinum and Lobelia should be sown indoors.
    • Prune Summer flowering deciduous shrubs such as Buddleia which flower on the current year’s growth.
    • Cut back Summer and Autumn flowering Clematis to the lowest pair of strong buds.
    • Sow Sweet Peas and pot on those sown in the Autumn.
    • When it is mild Broad Beans, Carrots and Parsnips can be sown under cloches.

    When it is mild Broad Beans, Carrots and Parsnips can be sown under cloches.

    • Sow Greenhouse Tomatoes, Cucumbers and Peppers at 21°C.
    • Seed Potatoes should be placed on their ends in a light, cool, frost free place to sprout.

    November & December 2020

    Congratulations to the Trophy winners at our Autumn Show, Morriss Kemp (Ron Sporle Shield, Four Tomatoes, Ted Crump Rosebowl, a Single Rose, Howard Plate, Three Roses, Newman Trophy, a Single Dahlia).

    Thank you to the other fourteen members who supported the show. The Trophies will be presented on November 23rd when Andrew Halstead will be talking about ‘Bugs that bite back’.

    Things to do in the garden in November.

    • The Planting of Tulips should be completed by the end of this month.
    • Cut down faded perennials leaving Penstemon and other late flowering perennials to continue flowering.
    • Dahlias and Cannas can still be lifted and stored in a dry place if you do not want to risk frost damage by overwintering them in the ground. They should be lifted, dried and stored in a frost free place ready for planting next Spring, if they are being overwintered in the ground they should be covered with a mulch dressing.
    • Apply an application of a mulch dressing to protect Agapanthus from the frost.
    • Half hardy Fuchsias and Pelargoniums should be cut back and brought undercover, reduce watering so that they remain dormant during the winter months.
    • The watering of Houseplants should be reduced as the nights draw in.
    • Amaryllis bulbs should be potted up for Christmas flowering.
    • Bring potted Hyacinths into a light cool area once they begin to shoot.
    • Reduce the watering of Houseplants.

    Continue to rake fallen leaves off of the lawn.

    • Now is a good time to plant Raspberry Canes, Fruit Trees and Bushes.
    • Start the winter pruning of Apple and Pear trees.
    • Aquadulce Broad Beans should be planted now to produce an early crop ahead of the Spring invasion of Blackfly.
    • Garlic cloves can still be planted.
    • Continue to rake fallen leaves off of the lawn.

    Things to do in the garden in December.

    • Indoor Azaleas should be watered frequently to prevent the dense root ball from drying out, rainwater is better than tap water.
    • Poinsettias are a popular gift at this time of the year, they should be kept in a warm light place away from draughts, they do not like to be overwatered. All other Houseplants should be kept in a bright place as winter light levels fall on frosty nights do not leave them trapped between closed curtains and the window.
    • Pinch out the tips of Sweet Peas sown in October to encourage bushy growth.
    • The vegetable plot should be cleared of all left over plant debris and lightly dug over to open up the ground so that the winter frost can get in and destroy bugs and diseases.
    • Rhubarb crowns can be forced by covering them with dark bucket.
    • Grape vines, Acers and Birches should be pruned before Christmas to prevent bleeding, most decidious trees can now be cut back, leave Prunus species until they are in leaf next Spring, Magnolias should be left until the Summer.
    • Keep off of the Lawn when it is frosty or very wet.
