Shona Wilson, New Town
"We inherited a completely overgrown, formal walled garden with our newly acquired house in the New Town that was in need of a lot of TLC, rescue work and some additional planting. We are very pleased with the work Bernie has carried out over the last year restoring the garden to its former glory. We can finally sit out and enjoy it. A big thank you to Bernie who we would have no hesitation in recommending."
Bridget Gray, Trinity
"Bernie has been working in our garden for several years now and in that time the garden has been completely transformed. Our back garden in particular was a barren patch used by the children to play football in and now contains a large herbaceous border and a herb garden with espaliered fruit trees. Over the years Bernie and I have worked together to create a garden that provides year-round colour and interest and which is now a real pleasure to spend time in."
Sheila Allan, Trinity
"I contacted Bernie last year to ask if she would come and do some coaching work with me in my garden. I love gardening but felt that there were certain aspects that I needed guidance with. Bernie has helped me so much and has given me invaluable advice on pruning, planting, soil improvement etc. Thanks to her coaching I've become more 'clued up' and much more confident in tackling various gardening tasks. I get so much more pleasure from my garden now."
Jane Henderson, Inverleith
"We have been working with Bernie for over a year now and there is no doubt that she is a very experienced and knowledgeable gardener. Our garden is large with a mix of mature shrubs, trees and herbaceous borders. Bernie made suggestions of how to best enhance the garden and worked with us over the months to feed the soil and move some plants to avoid overcrowding and improve the structure. At the end of autumn many plants were cut back however the garden was still full of colour and variety to enjoy over the winter months. Bernie is a pleasure to work with."
Seonaid Wilson, Newington
"Bernie has nurtured our formal walled garden and victorian rockery for several years now. She is a true gardener who takes great interest in the garden and its development. The garden is wholly comprised of white flowering plants which Bernie and I have had much fun adding to and developing over the years.
Margaret Donaldson, Trinity
"I have a garden with several large mixed shrub and herbaceous borders which I was finding too difficult to look after myself and so I asked Bernie if she would help. Over the time that she has been working in the garden she has maintained and developed it into a much loved and admired space."
Harvey Macmillan, Trinity
"I have a large walled garden filled with trees and several mixed shrub and herbaceous borders which provide much colour and interest from early spring to late autumn. It is a lovely garden due in no small measure to the meticulous care and attention given it by Bernie who helps me with the tasks I can no longer undertake myself. I can highly recommend her."
