THIS NONSENSE

She’s fast, incredibly fast. She’s a dab paw at nicking things. So much so I have just bought a gardening apron to circumvent her efforts. She likes a cuddle, but also likes jumping over things and sitting on overwintering lavender so it messes with the shape I’ve cut it to. She is quite the best little girl there is.

WELL SAID

Gardening is surely an ideal profession for the woman who likes it. The work is not so heavy as to put too great a strain on her physical capacity; and in the more expert branches the possibilities and range of interest is really unlimited

AVAILABILITY UPDATE

I don’t currently have availability for ongoing work, but I am working on some designs for the new season so if you think I can be of help, please do get in touch. I will be sure to let you know in no time at all if I have some extra capacity. February 2020

JOBS I DO

My father used to say there was no such thing as can’t so I do try to say yes to everything, but at a push I would say that two feet on the ground is generally better for all and I do have specialists I can call on to do the other stuff. For instance an amazing chap who does hedges and fencing, and a mower chap who takes great pride in his work

SUPPLIERS

I use specialists for many of the jobs that require specific kit and expertise. While I have several trade accounts with larger suppliers I generally like to go to the specialist plant growers for specific purchases.

PARAMOUNT PLANTS

They specialise in mature trees and shrubs https://www.paramountplants.co.uk

TREE SURGEONS

I have no hesitation in recommending Tree Frog Services. They are very professional, easily contactable on text, email and phone and have really invested in the kit needed to get the job done. They also obviously have great contacts for the more esoteric stuff. https://treefrogservices.com

VILLA VILLAGIO

I have had the great pleasure to purchase mature olive trees from this company that is meticulous in making sure that the trees they sell are tested and certified. Their biosecurity measures are beyond reproach and the trees are stunning. https://villaggioverde.co.uk
