At The Gardener’s Friend, we believe that everyone is a gardener at heart, even if they’ve not yet learnt to garden! Sometimes, a helping hand is all that’s needed to get started.

If you yearn to look out on a beautiful garden but don’t know how to begin to create it, or if you have recently acquired an established garden and are afraid of making mistakes, we can help you learn to design and look after your own wonderful outdoor space.

We visit you in your own garden, providing bespoke advice and guidance to help you learn the fundamentals of horticulture and garden design, developing your confidence and abilities to enjoy and make the most of your garden.

We work alongside you, showing you how the professionals do it, whether that’s planning, planting or pruning. Our advice is supported by our unique, modular course covering all aspects of horticulture and garden design, and tailored to the topics we cover together.

Whether your garden is the size of a football pitch or a postage stamp, let us help you make the most of it and experience the pleasure of looking out on a lovely space you have created yourself!

Please confirm we can send you emails with news, offers and tips.
