I arranged the consultation as we’re in the process of having new windows and doors fitted and I needed advice on the best way to prune back our existing planting close to the house to allow the work to be undertaken. As it turned out, this was the least of what we covered in those hours!
Melissa is extremely knowledgeable, a great teacher and very good fun! I’m keen to improve my own gardening skills and Melissa took the time to describe to me what she was doing and why, in the hope that I might be able to do it next time on my own. We agreed on a plan of works for the front of the house which will include several more ‘teaching’ visits over the next 6 months.
… we moved on to a really enjoyable, visionary and creative conversation about the possibilities for our small yard garden at the back of the house. At the end of the 2 hours I felt totally inspired about the future of what is essentially quite a small and uninspiring space. No small feat!
I also spent the rest of the weekend gardening. I absolutely loved our time together and the consultation far exceeded my expectations.
