The Garden Whisper
You're standing at your kitchen window - maybe doing the washing up - and you notice how your beautiful rose is looking a bit neglected, there are remnants of what were beautiful flowers in the summer but now - are they dead? It all looks so sad and forlorn and you don't know what to do about it.
You feel a bit guilty and ashamed that you've not tended to your lovely plants as you would like to, not shown them the love that they deserve - because they've brought you so much pleasure. You think you might have let them die!
You start to blame yourself, criticise yourself and then worry about how you can change things. You just don't know what most of the plants in your garden are let alone how to look after them properly.
You love your garden but you don't know how to look after it.
Wouldn't it be wonderful to have the help of your very own garden goddess who whispered advice and encouragement when you needed it most? A voice that told you what to do and when, how your plant should look and how to give it the love it needs and deserves to thrive.
This is what The Garden Whisper is designed to do - it's been created especially with you in mind..
It's a monthly mini magazine that's written just for you and your garden. It consists of a table of all the plants in your garden with instructions on what to do now to keep them looking good and staying healthy. It also gives information on what to expect from your plants that month - for example, whether they will be in flower, going over or just sending up shoots. Plus, it also gives more general advice like when to feed, mulch, the best way to deal with unwanted weeds etc.
It's sent to you via email each month for a whole year. This helps to avoid overwhelm and means you’re more likely to use it. (rather than put it to one side and forget about it). If you have any particular things you want to know, you can tell me and I’ll include them.
I created The Garden Whisper because so many people tell me that the two things they wish they knew are what the plants in their garden are and how they should look after them. I've come across a lot of people who think they SHOULD know how to look after their garden, as if it's knowledge we're born with. They feel embarrassed, even guilty that they aren't able (at this time) to give their plants and garden the love they want to.
I want you to know that plant and garden knowledge isn't common knowledge. They are learned over many years and it's absolutely OK for you to have gaps in your knowledge.
So, if you find yourself wondering (even worrying) about when to cut back, prune, deadhead, divide, mulch etc, etc and you don't have the time to trawl through books and internet articles, or do a course on gardening, then the 'Garden Whisper' might be just the thing you need.
The Garden Whisper gives you information in bite sized chunks. It's a bespoke maintenance plan, a gentle nudge each month that tells you what to do to keep your garden looking great and your plants healthy.
How does it work?
You send me a list of the plants in your garden. If you don’t know what they are, you can send me photos and if I still can't identify them, if it's practical I will visit you to take photos. If I still can't identify them, I will give you a full refund.
Then each month for a whole year, I send you an e-mail with the ‘Whisper’ attached.
You can also join a dedicated private Facebook group where you can ask questions, I'll offer Q&A sessions and be there to support you as you learn how to care for your garden.
How much does it cost? - It costs £167.
