Hanging Out My Shingle: Garden Coach

I am a certified horticulturist with a concentration in organic practices.

Gardening does not have to be daunting or stuffy. We’ll take small steps to get you on your way to growing your own food, flowers or herbs. Or to simply create a manageable garden around your home or on your property.

Areas of expertise include plant identification and care recommendations for new house (and garden) owners. Assessing your existing or expected garden/landscape for what suits you at the moment. Establishing organic vegetable gardens. Creative container gardening.

I encourage and foster the new or curious do-it-yourself gardener regarding the cultivation of herbs, annuals, perennials, shrubs, trees and native plant recommendations for Central Virginia. We can develop plant, supply and tool lists; planting and maintenance schedules; as well as review area gardening and landscaping resources. Or we can just focus on a particular project, one season at a time.

Location: Charlottesville, Virginia and surrounding areas
