Living on the edge of the West Pennine Moors; Sandra suffers from the usual problems
of heavy, wet clay soil, cold weather and winds (and the occasional rabbit!).
She had recently had her garden landscaped and wanted to select plants for her new
borders. I was invited over to look at her garden and find out about the style of
planting she liked. I was then able to suggest the types of plants that would create
the style she liked and still thrive in her garden. I also advised her on good plant
suppliers and planting techniques.
Sandra said“Sue has helped me plan and plant a border with plants that suit and
thrive in my garden. it looks fantastic too ! Gone are the days of spending a fortune
on random plants from the garden centre which look great but dislike my soil and
conditions. Learning the basics such as how to dig properly, tease out roots and
harden off plants has improved my confidence with coping with my own garden and made
gardening much more pleasurable.”
