For the last 14 years, we (Simone and Jackie) have owned the horticultural business, Natural Gardeners.

We have designed, built and maintained gardens through the East Midlands, specialising in professional garden management. However, with the unavoidable event of maturing years we have decided to embrace a new challenge in the lovely market town of Melton Mowbray.

Now we are offering our horticultural experience with advice on plants, planting containers for the house & garden, garden designs & flower choices. Plan Sourcing and Maintenance Sheets Available also.

Price – £60 for a 2 Hour Consultation including a written report.


Simone has worked in the horticultural industry for 30 years. Having experience in commercial nurseries through to award winning independent garden centres. Plants and gardening have been a central part in her life which has given her tremendous joy. Further to this she has developed an affectionate love for up-cycling furniture, which will be displayed in the shop for sale.  She will also be taking on customer commissions.

Jackie spent two years at Reaseheath College over 20 years ago, and has embraced the plant world ever since. She qualified as a landscape designer and had training in turf care, fruit and amenity trees. Her experience has included managing a garden and plant centre in Dorset and also being responsible for the grounds of the Manor House attached. She believes plants are intrinsic to the quality of a persons life and she would like to encourage everyone to experience the benefits.


Also part of the team is Wilf the rescue dog from Romania.          If you find him in the shop he will give you a very waggy welcome.
