Are there any keen gardeners in or near SE1 who might be able to help advise on garden design please?
I'm posting on behalf of someone whose bought a house with garden in Bermondsey. There are a few trees in place already including eucalyptus and silver birch, and magnolia and jasmine plants.
Neither of us has much of a clue about plants/trees however, and wondered if someone might be interested in advising on what sort of stuff to plant, or what we should prune/cut and what should be left. Thought there might be someone whose interested in that sort of thing but doesn't have any outdoor space themselves, or maybe someone whose retired or even works in that sort of field (no pun intended) and could help out with design/types of plants to use etc?
