I asked Peter to prune my wisteria and advise on some of my trees. What I hadn’t expected was a masterclass in pruning techniques, slug and bug control, feeding, manuring and a host of other useful gardening tips. My wisteria is now tidy and ready to burst forth in bloom in May, my apple trees are properly shaped, my roses and blackcurrants are tidied up, and I’ve learned the name of the deliciously scented shrub that’s been flowering since early January. It’s a lonicera purpusii Winter Beauty. Mystery solved. So thank you Peter. I’m hugely grateful to you for putting my garden to rights in such an expert and friendly way.
Peter spent a day with me in my garden at the end of February 2015 giving masses of advice and hands-on lessons in pruning and general care of plants. He is not only extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of plants and gardening but is very personable and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him.

Burncoose Nurseries have worked on garden planning and planting projects with Peter Mills for several years. During that time Peter has often visited the nursery at Burncoose in Cornwall to select rare and unusual specimen plants for individual horticultural clients and we have also visited gardens which Peter is involved with to help select the best plants for these individual gardens.
Burncoose has no hesitation in recommending Peter to new gardening clients.
However, the Burncoose connection goes even further than this; George Williams, Chief Executive of Plantsnapp uses Peter as well as Burncoose as part of a small group of experts who identify plant names from photographs sent in by puzzled gardeners.
We look forward to supplying plants to many more of Peter’s clients in the future.
Pete is always so enthused and informative on anything he does in our garden. He spots birds we've never noticed before, plants we could do with putting in a better position and always ready with a solution for that 'problem area'. Pete is always very knowledgeable and personable and happy to help with anything. His depth of knowledge makes him always ready to provide the most practical solution to those problems that might have been gnawing away at you for ages.

Peter helped me see things from a different perspective.
The time spent with Peter opened up new opportunities.
My garden review with Peter resolved problems which had troubled me for years.
In just one hour with Peter I learned things about gardening that would have taken me months to research.
My time with Peter saved me a lot of money in the long-run by doing things right the first time.
