If your plants are looking sad and droopy, then you will realise that something is wrong but may not be able to diagnose the problem. If you have just moved house, then you may not be able to identify all the joys and problems that you have inherited.
I can spend time with you in your garden giving you an inventory of the goodies and baddies, and what you can do to make your new garden sparkle all year round.
Garden centres are full of ‘remedies’ all claiming success; whether you favour organic or traditional methods, I am able to identify and deal with any issue that you may be playing host to in your garden. There is no point in you digging up a plant merely to replace it with another, when the original problem was not the plant itself, but a pest or other damaging organism living in the soil.
An accurate diagnosis in the first instance will spare you this unnecessary expense.
Plants are expensive, and it is a shame to allow them to fall foul of marauding pests & diseases, a lack of nutrients or just bad horticultural practice. If only one plant is saved from the jaws of death, then my expertise becomes a money-saving exercise.
I can suggest plants that would fill in your seasonal gaps, give you tips on how to save water and give you relevant pruning advice for over-grown or out of shape plants to guarantee maximum flower power.
This is also a valuable service if you are selling a house and need to get some ‘kerb appeal’
