After attending Sari's course, I feel confident in selecting plants, and I know what I need to take into consideration when making my choices, such as colors, sizes, flowering periods, placement, and so on. I look forward to see my flower garden in full bloom.

 I love that Sari took us step by step. The quiz gave us the garden style we wanted, during the online session she really guided us to create our own dream garden based on our taste and needs.

Sari made great color suggestions, taking into account my preferences for darker colors for both flowers and foliage. She pulled up photos of the plants so I could see how they looked and would be able to see how they fit with the other plants to produce an overall effect.

Hydrangea 'Annabelle' is good plant for a modern low-maintenance garden
Starting a garden with low-maintenance garden perennials like Sedum

“I've always found choosing plant and flower colours difficult, and more often than not, gone with expensive trial and error, and felt horribly guilty when taking plants out that just don't work. I feel a lot more confident now. I have a game plan, I can pick the right colours and styles to give balance, and envoke how I want to feel in the garden and how I want visitors to feel as well.”
