Each type of plant requires individual and specific conditions to thrive, with each plant needing different nutrients, pH levels (Hydrogen ion content), amounts of water, sunlight levels and organic matter content. A small oversight in the balance of any of these conditions can result in plants being put under stress. This can make them vulnerable to pests and disease. As fully trained horticulturists, we can identify and rectify the problem to make sure you get the very best from your garden. We have much experience in the planting and maintenance of shrub and herbaceous borders. With the correct planting scheme, you can achieve colour and interest to tantalise the senses all year round, even in the depths of winter.
Tree Planting & Staking
Certain trees and large bushes need to be supported because of their size. When the stakes used for supporting such trees and bushes are correctly employed, they can be hidden and used for only a short period of time, until the tree becomes established. The choice of trees we can plant in our garden is endless!
Which tree will: –
- Thrive in each particular soil?
- Mature to the desired height of the customers choosing?
- Tolerate sunny or exposed areas in a garden?
- Grow in boggy, clay or dried out soil?
- Keep their leaves, providing permanent privacy?
- Change to the customer’s favourite colour through the dreary winter months?
All these and more factors we can discuss and advise on.
Sensory gardens are those that have a greater effect on the senses, through the use of specific trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants and bulbs. Sensory gardens can be particularly stimulating for children and those with learning disabilities. Through careful choice of colours, smells and textures, the garden can provide a wonderful learning experience. Sensory gardens really are an asset and are normally tailored to the needs of the individual that the garden is being constructed for.
With many gardeners to choose from, you can be assured that we have the experience, qualifications and knowledge to give your new plants the best possible start. If you would like any advice on this subject, please get in contact with us.
