Plant Consulting

What is a plant consult?

Let me help you create the green space you will love. I'll ask you questions related to the area you'd like to plant out, like; sunlight, climate & size of the space. Then I'll ask you questions about your lifestyle, desire for upkeep & functionality for your family & pets. I'll then select plants that I think fit within these requirements and offer you a detailed list. From there, I offer additional services including; plant sourcing, design & installation. I work with your budget and style, offering advice to help create your green sanctuary.

What kind of plants? 

I love tropical plants and they are my specialty, but living in Sydney does restrict the choice of plants to an extent. My experience working in a garden centre & nursery means I'm familiar with a wide range of plants, suitable for our climate; from hedges, ornamentals, plants for the shade and the sun, plus my absolute favourite: houseplants! 

What is involved?

I'll help you select the right plants for your space in three easy steps:

  1. Pre-visit questionnaire 
  2. One hour on site visit with advice and assistance 
  3. Recommendations and report post visit 

And, if you'd like me to source the plants, design and install, I can do that too. 

So what does it all cost? 

Initial consultations are charged at $150 including the pre-visit questionnaire, one hour visit and post visit report. Further services such as plant sourcing, design and installation will be quoted pending the scope of the work. I work with your budget so we can create your green sanctuary.

Rachel, I am so proud to say that I have started my own indoor sanctuary. Having plants to look at, care for and naturally learn about really does improve my mood. All thanks to the confidence you gave me and the helpful tips and hints

Is a one hour consult enough?

It's your choice, we can spend one hour together or longer. As a guide, one hour should be sufficient time to for a small suburban garden or an indoor space. If you think you have a larger area or multiple spaces or projects we can discuss these prior to booking. 

So we can maximise our time together, upon booking I'll send you a pre-visit questionnaire so I can gather some information and resources to share with you during your one hour on-site consultation.  

To ensure you get the most bang for your buck, I also provide a post-visit report detailing the plants that are suitable for your space, so you won't forget anything I share. 

Additional Services 


After the initial consultation, I offer additional services to help create your own green sanctuary. You choose how much work you'd like me to do and I'll quote you accordingly. 

  •   Plant Sourcing  I select the best quality plants from reputable suppliers.
  •   ​Design I work with your ideas to create a beautiful green space.
  •   Installation I roll up my sleeves and get my hands dirty, and I bring help if I need to.
