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' sessions

If you have a desire to maintain your own garden but don't know where to start, I can provide 'learn about' sessions in your garden focussing on an area of your choice. For example, I can show you how and when to prune, dead head, and generally how to take care of your plants, and/or advise on things like composting, how to look after your soil,  how to attract more wildlife into your garden, how to create and manage a wildflower area, and how to grow your own fruit and veg.

Please see the fees page for more details.

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

“We were really impressed with the design service offered by Jayne. Jayne was able to take our initial brief and translate this into a stunning contemporary design that really made the most of the small space we had and provided a great backdrop to our new kitchen extension. The combination of hard landscaping and planting have completely transformed the garden. Over several meetings she was able to communicate the concepts and hone the design and even sample materials. She then recommended and then liaised with the landscaper to ensure the implementation went to plan before completing the final planting.”

"I found Jayne to be very friendly and pleasant to work with. The design is lovely - very attractive. I was impressed with Jayne's willingness to adapt to and take account of our cost constraints and likes and dislikes regarding plants. All work was carried out efficiently and pleasantly. Jayne was always ready to discuss and advise about design and plants and has transformed a boring and rather difficult small garden into an interesting area which will only improve as the plants grow and mature."

We love our garden now. Our two dogs had pretty much destroyed it and it had become an embarrassment. We never used it, not even just for ourselves. It now has structure and a proper patio area and is always good to look at even in this bleak weather!

This will be our second spring with it and I'm really looking forward to seeing everything grows again and how it will change this year.

Mr & Mrs Crooke

Jayne was always totally reliable, whether coming out to look at the garden or providing plans and ideas, and is a very knowledgeable plantswoman.

She had a good understanding of what I wanted to do with the garden, and always listened to my ideas and then made suggestions that were appropriate to the location and aspect.

Mr & Mrs Townsend
Houghton Conquest

Jayne's ideas of how to transform a long straight garden into something more interesting were quite inspirational. By introducing shape and perspective the garden now has structure.

The planting plan she suggested has added interest and constant colour which changes with the season.

Needless to say we are delighted.

Mr & Mrs Collier

We were delighted with Jayne's approach to our garden and her understanding of what we were trying to achieve.

Her knowledge of plants and what will actually work is fantastic.

Three years on we are still delighted with our garden.

Mr & Mrs Bryant

Jayne has a real passion for gardening and her knowledge of plants is highly impressive. She seems to know exactly which plant will thrive in a particular part of the garden - sunny, shady, soil type and so on. She also thinks about the proportions and overall effect.

To work with, she is extremely flexible and happy to give you just the bits of advice or help you need.
