Gardening knowledge

The David Fairley Gardens team are very passionate about horticulture and the business began and still thrives on maintaining gardens across the Market Harborough area. Our advice is based on the understanding of how plants   grow as well as takin into account  personal preference. There are thirteen pruning groups provided by the Royal Horticultural Society for shrubs and trees, Each pruning group encourages the best growth depending on the way it grows and responds, also making sure each specimen plant is restricted to its own area and not interrupting other plant's display. Please contact us if you are looking for a gardening team.





Pruning tips
We are here to help, our customers  are often put off when choosing certain plants. Usuallally fearful of how to  prune plants when they become mature and are growing vigourously. A good example is the rambling Rose, it  does need a big space to be trained on. However, when it is trained and pruned thoroughly in the winter they are then kept compact for next years growth, as well as the plant flowering
well. The new growth is garanteed to be lush and growing more vibrantly.
