Hi all -

What is the best way to find a gardener to hire - to plant plants.
I hurt my back - and I had already bought plants now I need help to get them into the ground
A lot of landscapers' - are not really 'plant folks - meaning that do not know difference between a weed and other plants. So my thought was to find a gardener.

Any way - I would like to hire a 'gardener' I am in the north east -
in Warren, NJ 07059.

What is the best way to find a 'gardener for hire?

I just had a thought.
Either a local high schooler who needs community service time or the local Boy Scouts. You might find one eager to help and learn a little something in the process.
I am sure that they can follow directions.

Many garden centers that sell the plants offer planting as a service, or should be able to refer someone.

Maybe just give these groups a call, perhaps they can point you in the right direction

If that's your garden, you don't need a gardener. Lovey dubby

LOL - Thank You for the laugh - your right if that was 'my' garden - I would not need a gardener LOL
I am a newbie - I do not know how the acorn got there - it asked for a photo - and I guess I thought the photo I gave - was going to be where the acorn was. and I'm ok with the acorn. I wanted to reply to you - hope this works.

Google "find a gardener to hire" specifying your locality. You will find MANY offers in these unemployment days. Demand experiences pre-2018 though. People lie. And be VERY specific about what you want them to do.
