Mel’s Story

I am Melissa, a mother of three grown children, a wife to Mark and lover of plants. When I was 40, I quit my stressful career to pursue my adoration of gardening. It changed my life. I studied Horticulture at Murdoch TAFE and received my Diploma of Landscape Design. I have worked for myself and also at a family owned and operated garden nursery in the foothills of Perth.  I am constantly amazed how plants change to suit their environment and thrive to be seen; how a flower has decided that today is the day to show off its beauty and in the new day the roses have aphids all over them and the yesterday the aphids where nowhere to be seen.  I am dedicated horticulturist that will select the right plant for the conditions it is intended with promoting and supporting good landscaping practice.
