  • Love this article on garden coaching! The tips are definitely something I can use. I never really thought about how the garden is viewed most. Generally, my gardens look great up close but from far away (how most people see it) it lacks some punch. Great
  • Great tips - my garden is a work in progress and can't wait to start planting in the spring! Your hydrangeas are gorgeous - my favorite flower
  • Thanks, guys! :) Eclectic, the Hydrangeas love a good organic acid-loving fertilizer in May and July. I use the Gardener and Bloome stuff or Dr Earth for acid-loving plants.

    What a great job that must be, too. Imagine the gardens and wonderful people you would get to meet. Thanks for the article.

    Jen, have been following your blog for a while & saw you here. Do you do photo consults or do you know someone who does this in the San Diego/Oceanside area? Thank you.
  • Michelle, thanks for your kind words. I would check the Garden Coach Directory online (google it) or the APLD website for local designers, many of which would likely be delighted to come out and do some coaching/ consulting.
