I want you to get the most out of coaching sessions, and so it is really important to spend an introductory session getting to know you and your garden. This session alone might be enough to start you off, and you might then just want to call on me to give you one-off lessons, on eg: pruning or taking cuttings, further down the line. So please understand that the first session has to be the standard introductory session. I currently work within a 15 mile radius of Saffron Walden.
