Do you have problems with your planting? Need help with your herbaceous border? Stuck on sessional veg planning? Our Therapeutic Horticulture lead and Head Gardener Matt Young is on hand to offer help, advice and practical tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your garden. 

Get a voucher for an hour of one-on-one help and advice from Matt. The vouchers make a fantastic Christmas gift for the gardener in your life, whether they’re new to gardening and have no idea where to start, or if they’re a seasoned gardener who needs fresh ideas and inspiration. 

The vouchers cost £50 and give you an hour of Matt’s time and expertise where you can ask him anything garden related. There are limited vouchers available so grab one soon to avoid disappointment!   

All proceeds from the vouchers will support the work of Martineau Gardens, a registered therapeutic horticulture charity.
