All year garden consultations, maintenance and planting design. I help you to develop your garden to its full potential and enjoy your garden throughout the seasons.

 

I garden sustainably, using organic methods to work with nature, nurture the soil and put the right plants in the right places so that they thrive.

If you're looking for garden advice, maintenance and/or planting design that's environmentally focused, get in touch, I'd love to talk about how I can help you achieve your garden dreams.

I'm Verena - an experienced and FdScHort qualified horticulturist with a love for nature, a healthy soil obsession and a passion for plants, and I believe in gardening for the benefit of all.  

 

I garden sustainably, using organic methods to work with nature, nurturing the soil and selecting the right plants for the conditions so that the garden thrives and is a joy throughout the seasons. I am a complete seedaholic and love growing plants, particularly flowers for cutting and food to eat!

Based in Mapperley, Nottingham and working in the surrounding areas.
