On site consultation

Sometimes it is hard to know where to start when creating or renewing a garden. If you have a particular problem area, need help with planning a new garden, or would like some expert advice before you buy plants, an onsite consultation could be the solution.

A qualified and experienced horticulturist visits your garden to answer your questions and help solve your garden problems. You will get lots of good advice, loads of ideas and recommendations right for your garden area.  We can give you suggestions on everything from what pest or disease is damaging your garden; how to prepare your soil and what plant to put where. We leave you with notes on what was suggested during the consultation; however, it is not possible to draw a formal design or give you a detailed plan during an onsite consultation.

Fee is $150.00 (including GST and travel within 1/2 hour of Guildford) which includes:

  • A one-hour discussion with a Guildford Town Garden Centre consultant to find out all you wanted to know about your plants and garden. Additional time is billed at $150/hour or part thereof.
  • VIP discount card

Payment can be made at the appointment by cash or credit card.

Call in or get in touch with us by phone or email and we will get our horticulturist to contact you to make an appointment.
