STORIES from the OFFICE.....

In my last newsletter I mentioned my office, the small but beautifully formed one that looks out onto an open field & brook.

Its been the hub for a summer of several fantastic commissions - my pencils are almost glowing, some of them have become stubs they've been sharpened so much!!

I'm so pleased & excited to see the current recognition of gardening as a 'prescribed' alternative to medication where appropriate, in a few areas in England. Bring it on! As an ex nurse & counsellor the profound healing effects of gardening & being amongst nature are something I have seen & heard of many times. Infact I have been blessed to work on several therapeutic gardens in my work, but in my mind all gardens should be therapeutic for their owners. Sadly, this is not always the case as many feel they don't have the time, inclination, skills or knowledge to create such a space.

So, if you & your garden are feeling 'unwell' contact Carol for your garden prescription ' 2tspns. a day at least 3times a week' has maximum benefits with minimal side effects!



Hello all, 

Well, that long awaited summer has come & almost gone &  Autumn is approaching. 

Its been such a busy summer of planting mixed herbaceous beds  with particular attention paid to plants selected for their seasonal interest, sustainability & especially wildlife friendly characteristics. There has been an awful lot of media coverage regarding climate change this summer, & its impact on insect & bee populations. Our bin store needed a facelift so we added a green roof, which has given me even more interest in watching bees, hoverflies & butterflies taking nectar from the flowers & provides  valuable greenspace even though small.

  •  AUTUMN is the time to take ACTION to organise that professional help so your ideas can be realised next year, you will be ready to roll right at the start of the season, so as soon as the weather starts turning to spring your garden project can become a reality.
  • Want to  improve your garden, revamp just a part of it or are you looking at it wide eyed, perplexed & completely overwhelmed? Call Carol or send an email, it can be sorted so you can sit back with that chilled white wine & enjoy your dream this next summer.

Look forward to hearing from you,

Carol J.
