"Thank you Heather, you have transformed and brought my garden back to life. I am now able to enjoy my garden again." - CR
Large country garden - East Sussex Re-design of all beds and areas with herbaceous perennials, trees and shrubs. All year round interest and regular maintenance making sure the garden looks great at all times.
The Clock House Plant care and consulatation. Working at this beautiful garden nestled in a rural estate was glorious. Tending to vegetables in the victorian greenhouse along with ancient and rare Apple trees and fruits. Pruning was a delight whilst tending to the gorgeous Roses and Wisteria and various unique plants that were around.
The Plantswomen's Garden Garden Advice, Plant Care and Restoration. With such a large garden with 8 very large herbaceous beds and various garden 'rooms', this garden was getting away from the owner. Having had a problem with the invasive weed - Ground Elder - we managed to greatly reduce the growth and started to get on top of it by meticulous removal from all beds and plants. However, it will need to be regularly managed to stop it coming back as vigorously as it was. It was a joy to work in such a beautiful garden.
Jasmine Cottage Planting Design and Plant Care. After trial and error with planting from the owners, they enlisted my help to redesign the large borders in the front of the house. 1 year on and the plants are thriving (even after the summer we had last year!), will take a few more years for it all to knit together in the herbaceous fashion but it is looking better than ever with extensive bulb planting to see them through the spring and autumn months.
Farm Cottage Garden Plant Care and weed removal. Whilst their regular gardener was on maternity leave, I was asked to help with the ground elder and bindweed which had smothered a large bed in the garden, causing plants to suffer. Tackling the weeds meant that plants had to be removed, cleaned and re-planted which although would never be eradicated, did halt it's progress.
The Rose Garden Consultation and Rose Care - Having an extensive colection of Roses, the owner of this garden needed some advice and pruning done. I only have these two pictures left which is a crying shame as the garden was utterly stunning and planted in the herbaceous style of Gertrude Jekyll.
St.Helens Down Consultation and soil improvement - After moving into the property, the owners had the garden landscaped but needed some advice on the planting and bed sizes. After a consultation we decided on a layout for the plants which I carried out and left the owners to the fun part of planting!
