 Kate has done a wonderful job helping us establish a sustainable cottage garden at our home in Auchenflower. Fertilisers and chemicals have been replaced with plenty of horse poo, garden mate, mulch and interesting plants including from June's Plants at Yeronga. The garden is full of flowers, birds and native bees. Kate's knowledge and creative design provide a great mix for learning about sustainable cottage gardening and I would highly recommend her workshops and design services. The garden consultation is a good place to start and excellent value for money. Enjoy your gardening!

 Inspiring consultation! Kate's practical advice and extensive knowledge  of plants, conditions and techniques has provided ideas for both long  and short term plans for my garden. Sustainable gardening hints on soil  preparation, maintenance, propagation techniques and re-using existing  plants in a more suitable location have given me insight into a huge  number of things to do that will be fun, save heaps of money and achieve  great results. I also loved the ideas for creating a texture-rich  adventure garden for my children. Thanks so much Kate!!
