Client Feedback

“These suggestions look absolutely brilliant! Have just printed them off to discuss with Steve. Now feeling excited about the prospect of putting your ideas into practice! We hugely appreciate how generous you’ve been with your time.”

Marian & Steve, Lancaster – Garden Advice Clients

“Thank you so much for the really interesting talk and demonstration, which you gave to us at the Higham Garden Club.  I think we all enjoyed the evening and went home feeling that it would soon be Christmas giving us time to make our Christmas Door Rings.  The best I have ever seen demonstrated as that is how I like them to be – natural foliage.”

Eileen from Higham Garden Club

“Excellent and very knowledgeable tutor, great venue and fascinating workshop with lots of useful practical tips and advice.”

Glen, Bromley Cross – Attendee at Plant Propagation Workshop

“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.”

Sandra in Turton – Garden Advice Client

“I do consider myself to be a reasonable gardener, but Sue really made me think about planting in a different way!”

Cheryl – Attendee at Garden Design Basics evening class

“Many thanks Sue for an excellent presentation. May your Pak Choi be wonderful!”

Keith from Calder Valley Organic Gardeners

“Thanks for the plans; lots of great ideas I’m really pleased with them 😊.   The plant list is great; good to see how big plants are and their seasonal interest.  I’m excited to get started.  ” Jeannette Mackay, Leyland, Garden Advice Customer
