Although many of our clients either struggle finding the time or ability to keep their garden as they would like, others are able to manage their gardens themselves, but from time to time require a little advice. Our consultation visits give you the opportunity to ask all of those questions, gain practical advice on all areas of your garden and optimise the potential in your garden.
Soil testing and analysis
The nutrients and trace elements in the soil are as important to plants as food is to us. Over time the levels of these nutrients and trace elements become depleted or out of balance. The correct balance of nutrients and trace elements in the soil provides plants with optimum growing conditions…..reducing succeptability to pest and disease attack, promoting stronger, healthier, more even growth, which all in turn result in plants that perform! By taking soil samples, we are able to determine the levels of the major nutrients in your soil and provide a personalised feeding plan to ensure your plants achieve their best!
Looking for a hard to find plant? or just want to get top quality plants at the best possible price? WE CAN HELP! With strong connections to local, regional and national nurseries, we buy direct from the grower. Locally grown plants perform better as they’re aclimatised to the local environment. We can source most plants through these nurseries…why not e-mail us with your requirements and we’ll do our best to give you the best quote possible.
Private Gardening Lessons
A great way for beginners to learn at their own speed, in their own garden, or for more experienced gardeners to improve their knowledge and make gardening easier. Sessions can be arranged at a time to suit you, and customised to suit your needs.
If you’ve ever found yourself wandering round the garden centre not sure what plants to put where, buying plants that don’t survive, or lacking the confidence to choose the right plants we can help.
If you would like to visit a garden centre with someone at hand that can:
- Offer unbiased advice.
- Help select the right plant for the right place.
- Select the best quality plants from those on offer.
- Save you money by choosing the right plants first time.
- Advise on which nurseries or garden centres are likely to stock the plants you need.
- Give you confidence for future selections.
The first step is to contact us. We will then discuss your requirements before joining you on a visit to a garden centre or nursery. For an additional fee a second garden centre or nursery can be added to the shopping trip.
