Tom Angel offers services as a garden consultant in the Glasgow area. As a chartered horticulturist and award-winning garden designer with extensive horticultural experience, Tom is able to offer horticultural consultancy services covering a broad range of topics - chiefly garden and landscape maintenance, garden design and invasive weeds management. Aside from bespoke garden reports, consultancy services offered include japanese knotweed surveys and annual site visits to help ensure new planting schemes develop and mature as intended over time. On-site training sessions with gardeners and maintenance operatives are also available.
Bespoke garden consultations are available and include a site visit and, if required, a detailed follow-up report. The consultations are entirely tailored to the issues you are facing in your garden and your aspirations for it. Advice from a horticultural consultant like Tom can help solve problems, save you time, and get you on track to fulfilling your garden projects. (Available as a gift token service as well) .
Ongoing consultancy on planting schemes helps ensure that they develop as intended. Sometimes opportunities develop in a scheme, due to vagaries in conditions, and these can be exploited with informed maintenance.
Video-call consultations are typically 30 minute calls with a summary report provided afterwards. Again, these allow you to get advice from Tom in his capacity as a horticultural consultant to help tackle your garden-related dilemmas.
Personal shopper service/Private tour of a trade nursery. Enjoy a tour of a large trade nursery and benefit from personalised plant selection advice, ensuring you're getting the right plants for the right places. Note that plant selection advice requires a soil test and completion of a micro-climate analysis prior to the nursery visit. (Available as a gift token service as well).
Japanese Knotweed surveys are available to identify knotweed as well as other invasive weeds, thereafter providing a management plan to help you control or eradicate your infestation. In many cases, invasive weeds can be remediated by regular gardeners armed with the right information.
Grounds maintenance schedules are available for residents' associations, property managers or owners of large or complex gardens. The information can then be used to tender for grounds maintenance contractors, or simply to help inform the efforts of the homeowner or their gardeners.
Soil pH tests include a pH reading as well as information about remedial measures if required. After you have sent a small soil sample, you receive a PDF document by email with the result and related information. It should be noted that DIY soil pH testing kits are unreliable - soil samples sent to Angel Horticulture Ltd are tested with agricultural-grade meters.
Horticultural recruitment is available nationwide for private individuals and estates. Whether you are looking for a head gardener, or a specialist in a particular area, get in touch to find out more about how this can all be taken care of for you.
