Planting Plans
You may not want to have your whole garden designed, but may have beds and borders which need revitalizing.
The Garden centres are full of interesting plants, but how do you know that the plant you like the look of will work in your soil conditions? Will it tolerate the shade under your tree, how big will it grow and does the colour work with the plants around it?
If you want to create a new border or revitalize an old one but don't know where to start, or want to make sure you don't waste money on buying lots of plants that don't work in your garden, then why not let me help you.

I offer a flexible service to provide you with the advice and/or plants that you need to bring your garden back to life.
This can include:
• Advice on how to improve the soil
• Planting plans or plant selection
• Pruning of existing plants.
• Sourcing plants
• Planting

Plant Care Information Packs
I can advise on plant care, producing maintenance plans detailing what to do with each plant each season. This can be for your existing plants or new ones.

Learn About Gardening Sessions
If you have a desire to maintain your own garden but don't know where to start, I can provide seasonal teach-in sessions in your garden to show you how and when to prune, dead head, and generally how to take care of your plants. I can also advise on things like composting, how to look after your soil, and how to attract more wildlife into your garden.

Postal Service
If you don't live locally, don't worry, I can provide a planting plan by post.
All you need to do is measure the plot that is to be planted, and send me these measurements along with the soil type, soil pH and how much light the plot gets. (Don't worry, I can guide you through this if you are not sure how to do it.)
Also let me know the type of planting you like e.g. strong and architectural, country cottage style, low maintenance, and any plants that you particularly want to include.
I will then create a planting plan suitable for these conditions and to your requirements showing where each plant needs to go. I will also provide a list of the plants with the quantities required that you can send to your local nursery.

The cost for the plan will vary according to the size of the plot but to give you a guide, a plot around 30m2 would cost £200.

If you want more information on any of these service, just give me a call and we can discuss your specific requirements.
