Productive Garden Advice

.  This service is for people wishing to start productive gardens – vegetable and/or fruit production.

I visit your property for between 1-3 hours (usually dependent upon size and what you want to do).  You can then take notes of our discussion, or I can write up a report of what needs doing.

The advice sessions covers:

•    How much productive garden is needed dependent upon family size, space and time available
•    Site and aspect
•    Soil type, building and  improvement including how to pH test
•    Shelter
•    Gardening systems – eg raised beds
•    Tools
•    Compost systems
•    Liquid fertilizers
•    Weeding and mulching
•    Protection of crops
•    Companion planting
•    Timing of planting
•    Types of plants to grow – vegetables, fruit, herbs
•    Annual and perennial plants
•    Seasonal planting
•    Garden maintenance
•    Irrigation

This is an advice service and not a garden design service – it is a verbal or written report which sets out the steps to start to build a productive garden.

Cost – $75/hr + travel (60c/km).  You can take notes as we progress around the garden, or alternatively I supply a written report for $75 inclusive.
