Need a gardener to maintain fruit trees

    2 responses

Renee starts with ...
I was wondering if anyone may have some ideas to help me out...

We recently planted a bunch of fruit trees in our garden and now we're moving overseas for my husband's work. We're going for at least 2 years and we're renting out our house while we're away.

I don't care much how the tenants maintain the garden (regular mowing etc) but i don't want our trees to die, and I'd like the pruning maintained (esp. as we have an apricot, plum and nectarine close together).

So I'd like to hire a gardener to maintain the trees on an agreed calender (say, monthly for watering topups over summer, then not so often in winter etc) but I don't know who to call. Im thinking a place like Jim's will be more used to keeping the garden tidy (which I don't want to spend our money on) and less likely to know corrent pruning. So where would you try? Any recommendations?

Try Geoff/Elizabeth at 9718 2998. Hope they are still there. They were in HURSTBRIDGE and if they can't help you I'm sure they'd know someone who can.

Thanks :) Do they run a gardening business?

I was also wondering about gardening students? Anyone think that's a workable idea?
