  • With Shoot, all the relevant information and advice about my garden and allotment are at hand.

  • The monthly plant care instructions & monthly email reminders are just what I need to look after my garden!

  • The care calendar advises on the gardening I should be doing every month. Great site...I am proud to be a member.

  • I love getting monthly reminders about what to do in my garden. Use it - it's great.

  • I love Shoot especially as I can log all my flowers & you tell me how to treat em. Finding Shoot has made my week!
