Kath is so practical and "down to earth". After some pre-visit planning she was able to focus on our long list of questions and responded with positive, helpful advice.  She wasn't fazed by our largish block with many gardening challenges and together we worked out a manageable plan. Kath has a wealth of knowledge to tap into and no matter how experienced a gardener is, one can always learn better or easier ways to do things. Her regular E-newsletter is also something I always enjoy." -- John & Diane.

We found Kath very knowledgeable, providing us with practical advice for how to design our orchard and develop our property. She gave us priorities to focus on, and which varieties of plants to plant to suit our landscape. We were very grateful we had this consultation - it gave us a plan and got us going in the right direction." -- Amanda & Alistair.

What I found really great was receiving (before your visit) the steps on "Making the most of your Consult". This meant I was able to be prepared for your arrival and every minute was utilised. As we walked around the property I felt extremely confident as you shared your knowledge with passion when advising on which plants were best and their placement. You made sure we covered everything on my list and left me with a good sketch of the planting and the names of suggested plants. At the end of our session you left me feeling well enthused and excited about growing my garden." -- Lois.
