Business overview

A passionate and knowledgeable plantsman with a real love of gardening, providing a garden maintenance and consultancy service in W. Devon and N. Cornwall at competitive rates.

With over a decade of experience working in commercial horticulture I have built up an in-depth knowledge of a large and diverse range of garden plants, as well as the practical experience to keep them looking at their best. In addition to caring for the plants themselves I also carry out the more regular gardening tasks, such as mowing, hedge trimming and weeding, giving you an all round gardening service at a competitive rate. I have a professional PA1/PA6 spraying certificate.

For many gardeners it's important to garden in harmony with nature: I have experience in working along organic lines, and also gardening in a wildlife friendly manner.

Each garden is different, so please contact me to discuss your requirements.


A beautiful autumn flowering perennial plant, perfect for late season colour and perfectly hardy! I have experience with most types of garden plants, including perennials.
Red flowers in spring followed by delicious red eating apples. Fruit tree pruning is one of the services I provide at the appropriate time of the year.
I have 10 years experience of growing and caring for Camellias.
Although I don't come across many of these in gardens, I have extensive knowledge of, and experience with, a broad range of plants- even carnivorous ones like this!
I have knowledge of a wide range of pond plants, and also with caring for the ponds themselves.
Although conifers have fallen out of fashion at the moment I do have experience of growing them, choosing the best varieties and getting the best from them. 'Leylandii' aren't the only conifers around, and many make excellent garden plants!
