My Gökotta Gardening page has jobs that are perfect for this time of year, both practical and planning. It also includes things that catch my eye in the wider countryside. Nature often does it better then we can and is a great source of inspiration. 

June News ...

In June, I find if I miss a few days in the garden so much has grown or started to bloom (including some of my pesky weeds!) But mostly it is a time to relish in the green growth and beautiful early summer flowers.

My Gökotta Gardening page this month I talk about some of the garden jobs in June and give an update on how my garden is fairing in my first summer here. 


"It was like going to see an Apple Genius Bar and coming away not only with your problem solved, but so many other new ideas as well!" 

Lucy and Ed, on having an online consultation for a community garden and allotment project.

I really enjoyed your session last night. I am a longtime gardener but find your talks quite inspirational, my garden has improved so much by putting your ideas into practise and I feel far more positive about changing things to suit my needs rather than just maintaining it. Really looking forward to soil!

Jenny, Shropshire, on online gardening classes

"I didn't want a gardener to do my gardening for me but guidance and recommendations as to how I could manage my garden, to answer my questions and develop my gardening experience. I couldn't tell a weed from a seed. I didn't know when to cut, feed or leave. I has been amazing to have found the expert guidance and support Natalie's personal garden consultation provides.

Beth, Ripon, on a face-to-face garden consultation.

"As an absolute beginner, I have found these online gardening sessions so informative and enjoyable. The interactive sessions are led by a professional gardener whose passion is infectious. You are made to feel comfortable to ask any questions at any level to answer your queries. I throughly enjoy the sessions and look forward to the next one!!"
