Annmarie is a great teacher…


“Annmarie is a great teacher very easy going, classes were fun and we learned a lot. Each week I looked forward to our Monday sessions, to learn how to take care of my Garden more. I would highly recommend Annmarie’s classes as she is patient and will explain everything  till you get it which is very important.”

Sharon Morgan

I really enjoyed the Monday evening classes…


“I really enjoyed the Monday evening classes that you ran in the term to Christmas. You have an encyclopaedic knowledge of everything to do with the garden, and I learnt a lot from your off the cuff comments, as well as from the prepared material for each class. The practical tips you gave, as well as quoting from the experts, were all very useful.”

I enjoyed seeing your garden which is most impressive and you very generous with your hospitality.

I found Patricia a very pleasant person. She is very informative and knowledgeable and kept the course interesting all day. There was lots of opportunities for questions.” Tim
