During our coaching session you can have a notebook ready and take as many notes as needed. Or if you just want to listen? Skip the notebook. For an additional cost, we will put together a Garden Secrets Journal with a re-cap of our coaching session(s). You can use your Journal as place to track and keep record of your own future successes or challenges.  




Are you wondering how to prune a certain plant? Or when you should divide your perennials? We make custom Plant ID Cards that feature a full color photo for visual recognition, as well as "secret" tips and helpful information about the plant. You may provide us with a list of each plant or we can perform an on-site analysis of your property and identify all of your plants for you.




We offer Custom Ceramic or Wooden Plant ID Markers to help you continue identifying your plants, shrubs or trees year round. Customize your own set of 5 or 10 markers. 

Need help identifying your plants? No problem, we can come to your property and create a plant identification list for you. Details listed in checkout.
