Brian looks after my hedge which serves as my front fence. He does such a wonderful job. I am so proud of how my hedge looks! He is communicative, professional and knowledgeable. He knows exactly when to schedule in a trim based on the season and weather. When he first started one side of my hedge was not as thick as the other side, and he knew exactly what to do to encourage more growth. Highly recommend!

Have you ever tried a hedge made up of pot plants? This is a Buxus hedge (now needing a trim) which I’ve had for many years. If I wanted to I could also take all of these & create trimmed balls with them. But the other thing with Buxus is they can be easily grown from cuttings, provided you are patient, as they grow slowly #buxushedge  #pottedhedge #gardentips #buxus #growingplants #gardens #gardening

What do you think about this flower? It’s a Rosebud Geranium; a very old variety which you may not see much of these days. These delightful little flowers were used in gentleman’s lapels in the 1800s. And a useful gardening tip for you, if you acquire little plants like this, is to grow multiple cuttings & have them in different parts of your garden or in pots. That way, you’ll always have spares should your original plant die. Mine came from a cutting, years ago #growcuttings #potplants #geranium #flowers #gardening #gardentips #rosebudgeranium #mygardenlife #inaustralia #gardeningservicesnewcastle

This is one of my pot plants on my front porch. Do you like it? It’s a Variegated Rubber Tree. It’s a tough, drought proof plant. But never plant this in your garden or it will become a major garden problem. There are many plants you should never plant in your garden & others I’d avoid. My list of do not plant includes Fiddle Leaf Fig, Golden Robina, Yucca Elephantipes, various forms of Ficus & even Wisteria, Jasmine & grafted Passionfruit. And if I’m your gardener, none of these will get past me #potplants #gardenproblems #gardeningservices #gardenmaintenance #newcastlegardener #gardentips

My work today was to trim everything you see in this video. It was busting out everywhere but now there’s beautifully shaped living green garden ornaments everywhere. It was meant to be up over 40 Celsius but thankfully it topped at 33, with a bonus breeze #trimming #garden #topiary #buxusballs #hedgetrimming #gardener #newcastlegardener #howitsdone #beautifulgarden #mygardenlife #gardenmaintenance #gardeningservicesnewcastle
