Green-fingered Garden - Enthusiast/ Gardener Wanted Ponsonby

Francesca from Grey Lynn

Hello! I am looking for a wonderful green-fingered person to come and tent to a small courtyard garden in Ponsonby/Herne Bay area. Its a beautiful little European influenced courtyard that requires a bit of TLC about 2-4 hours per week (deadheading, fertilising, watering, and replanting and trips to the garden centre when necessary). Would suit somebody passionate about gardens after a small, and rewarding project. :)
