Garden Consultations & Workshops - Greater Victoria, Vancouver Island
Make your dream garden a reality with my help! I can visit your property or you can come to mine for inspiration and examples. Tap into my gardening experience and knowledge to make a success in your garden.
Your job is to provide me with a sketch of the area in question, a "wish list" of the type of plants you hope to incorporate and a basic knowledge of your shady and sunny areas.
Victoria has an almost year round potential for gardeners to choose a wide variety of Lavenders, Herbs, Vegetables, Shrubs and Trees.
Ideally I will plan you an organically grown garden with time and maintenance in balance with your needs and availability. The bonus of including Lavender and Herbs is their lovely scents and second use for cooking delights, craft projects and wonderful eclectic bouquets.
Consultations are also available by phone. Please leave a message on our Farm line (250) 474-5767 and we will set an appointment time. Calls are generally returned when in my evening time. (Pacific Standard/Daylight Zone)
