About us

My name is Edd Grimes and I am a garden designer based in Devon covering Exeter and surrounding Devon areas. I’ve been designing gardens in and around Exeter and Mid Devon for five years. I have a degree in garden design from Bournemouth University and have also studied at Cannington College and Bicton College.

When studying I won the regional young garden designers competition designing the entrance to the Bath and West Show Ground.

I deliver the best garden design, construction and garden maintenance service in the industry and would welcome the opportunity to work with you in creating a perfect garden for you to enjoy whatever your needs in Exeter and the surrounding areas of Devon.

DUARTE, MANOELA MENDES; MILANI, JAÇANAN ELOÍSA DE FREITAS; BLUM, CHRISTOPHER THOMAS and NOGUEIRA, ANTONIO CARLOS. GERMINATION AND MORPHOLOGICAL OF SEED AND SEEDLING OF Albizia edwallii (Hoehne) Barneby & J. W. Grimes. Rev. Caatinga [online]. 2015, vol.28, n.3, pp.166-173. ISSN 1983-2125. https://doi.org/10.1590/1983-21252015v28n319rc.

This study aimed to characterize the morphology of seeds and seedlings and evaluate the germination of seeds of Albizia edwallii submitted to different substrates and temperatures. In physical characterization were evaluated thousand seed weight, the number of seeds per kilogram and moisture content. To determine the morphological characteristics, it was evaluated the biometry of 50 seeds, as well as its internal and external characteristics. Germination was conducted at three temperatures (20 ° C, 25 ° C and 30 ° C) and three substrates (sand, vermiculite and blotting paper) with five replications of 40 seeds per treatment, in a factorial 3 x 3 and completely randomized design. The variables were germination percentage, germination rate index, mean germination time, and synchronization index. The thousand seed weight was 47.7 g, while the number of seeds per kilo was 20.964 for the moisture content of 13.1%. The seeds have an elliptical shape, no endosperm and have persistent funiculus. Germination is epigeal, and the seedling is phanerocotylar being fully formed at 15 days. Temperatures of 20 ° C and 25 ° C provide the highest germination rates, 42 and 38%, respectively, and germination speed index (GSI). The use of sand as a substrate provided better germination percentage than the other substrates. Thus, it is recommended to use sand as a substrate and temperatures of 20 ° C and 25 ° C in A. edwalli germination tests.
