Cycling gardener using organic practices, covering the South - Southwest area of Edinburgh and offering regular and one-off, general garden maintenance for domestic garden owners. HND in Horticulture from SRUC. Services include: clearing of overgrown borders and removal of pernicious weeds, border design and planting of annuals, perennials, bulbs, shrubs, small trees and vegetables, pruning/training of shrubs, topiary and small trees, seasonal mulching and garden mentorship. I am not able to remove large quantities of garden waste because I get around on a cargo bike, so I avoid jobs were pruning large/long hedges is required.
