Garden Thumb Horticulture WILL make a difference to your garden and not necessarily cost you more. We maximise plant health and success through a complete understanding of Horticulture.
Horticulture is the science, art and practice of gardening and cultivating plants and trees. A qualified and experienced Horticulturist understand plants and how to maximise their health and beauty. He understands plant selection, correct pruning techniques and how to efficiently provide the required nutrients and water, no matter your soil type and/or local conditions. Should problems occur, he also understands common pests and disease and what to do about them. We minimise the need for weeding and watering through some basic Horticulture and Permaculture techniques.
You’ve invested time and money in your plants and garden, so let a horticulturist get the most out them. Encourage your garden to thrive and enjoy the health, beauty, flowers, fruit and vegetables it produces.
Permaculture is a passion of the proprietor and as such tends to cross over into all aspects of Garden Thumb services, leading to clever design, clever maintenance strategies and ultimately a healthy environment for you and your surroundings.
The philosophy behind permaculture is one of working with, rather than against nature. Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems.
Understanding Permaculture principles in the garden lead to a healthy, efficient, productive, and in some cases, maintenance free garden. Let us introduce you to some clever strategies that will save you time, money and health.
