Improve Your Gardening with a Coach

While reading about gardening is a great way to increase your knowledge, there is nothing like having an experienced gardener actually out in the garden with you, giving advice first-hand. Some beginners may be lucky enough to have a parent, grandparent, friend or neighbor to pass on tips and techniques.

Those who don't, but who value that personal touch, can now hire a "garden coach." This new profession has been growing in popularity in recent years as experienced plant professionals offer a variety of on-site services to clients, including advice on landscape design and planning, soil building, garden maintenance, and diagnosis and treatment of plant problems. Some coaches specialize in a particular area, while others can help with a wide range of garden questions.

How to find a garden coach in your area? Recently, garden coach Susan Harris of Takoma Park, Maryland started an on-line directory of garden coaches that includes more than 100 listings in 38 states and 4 foreign countries.
