Feedback: The wait was shorter than I had been warned it might be. (My order was at peak time.) The contractor 1st Choice recommended for the base, and the workmen who put up the actual shed, arrived when they said they would, were polite and friendly and did a good job. So far, standing up well to the weather. Only been a few months. So don't know about longer term resilience yet.
Response: Hi, thanks for your feedback in connection with your new Platinum garden shed. I'm pleased we were able to deliver sooner than expected and that everything went to plan. We always under promise and try to over provide. That way, most of the time, we are all happy. Thanks again. Regards, Robin

Cruise ship liners have experienced a massive increase in demand over the last 10-15 years and considering the economic gloom is still very popular. Maybe people are deciding to spend their money and enjoy themselves whilst they can rather than worrying about tomorrow. With some of the new cruise ships being launched such as Disney Dream, Celebrity Eclipse, Norwegian Epic and Allure of the Seas ship owners are obviously confident, however after the recent Costa Concordia disaster they may need a rethink.
Personally I've never been on a cruise as my life running the family garden shed company tends to keep me busy, however in the not too distant future I need to slow down a little and maybe let my son take over the running of the family shed firm and let me enjoy my garden a little more. He has been involved in the family shed business since 1990 and initially was taught the basics of garden shed making and evolved over the years to where he is today. In fact he started our garden shed web site back in 1996, titan.uk.com, and this was the very first garden shed web site in the UK, quite an achievement.
However, the cruise ships of today are phenomenal as the Oasis of the Seas, owned by Royal Caribbean, features a massively large area of greenery gardens name Central Park, not sure if it is named after Central Park gardens in New York, and which include many varieties of plants. Its irrigation system below decks helps to ensure a regular supply of water. So a floating garden is helping to convert water which is mind blowing.
Two Florida firms were responsible for supplying these garden plants and their massive industrial size sheds were jammed pack full before they could deliver on board . Southeast Growers of Wellington and Michael's Nursery from Boynton Beach are growers of these garden plants on an industrial scale. They can specialise in the cruise ship market and consequently have to have very large commercial scale sheds during the growing and storing seasons.
Garden Sheds, Workshops and Summerhouses in Godalming Over 12,000 plants were shipped on board with many of the plants you may see in your own gardens and around your garden sheds or summer buildings but mainly tropical plants, ones you would not normally see in a British garden. These included vegetation from its Caribbean roots, spices, pineapples and coffee plants - just think of those lovely smells and you can imagine a different world, you would not expect this smell in your garden shed normally, maybe if you were dreaming.
Rich Kern, the president of Southeast Growers, said that the scale of this project was very unusual and was something which they had not done before. With this experience under their belt I am sure that they will be repeating this operation over and over again. The Oasis of the Seas was launched in 2009 with its official naming ceremony in November of that year.
