After the pandemic began, gardening became more popular. It is estimated that over seven million people have taken gardening classes since. This is no coincidence.
Gardening is one of the most popular hobbies in the United Kingdom (UK). According to a survey, most respondents agreed that gardens and outdoor spaces helped relieve anxiety and stress, contributing to mental well-being. Thus, gardening, plants, and flowers expenditure in the UK increased by 6.2 billion pounds in 2020.
With this new influx of first-time gardeners, more people need expert gardeners’ guidance. Looking up information online can only help so much. Gardeners need hands-on training and expert-level advice if they want to continue keeping their plants in tip-top shape.
This is where Plant Judo and our highly skilled plant consultants come in. We are here to ensure you achieve your gardening goals and give you some direction and well-proven advice.

A plant consultant is a gardener trained to help you define your planting goals. They will create a plan tailored specifically to you based on these goals. They will be alongside you every step, ensuring you are well on your way to achieving the plant space of your dreams.
A plant consultant will usually start with a consultation. They will come to your house and view your planting space in person. Consultations can also be done via Zoom.
You will be asked some questions to gain a better understanding of your gardening experience, your goals, your successes and your struggles.
If you plan on starting a brand new indoor planting space, they will help you choose the optimal location for what you would like to grow. They will measure the available space and give you a few options to choose from.
Once the initial consultation has been concluded, the consultant will put together a tailor-made plan based on your planting needs, experience level and goals, among other things.
A plant consultant is usually needed for their vast gardening knowledge and experience. Since the internet isn’t always reliable, a plant consultant can be invaluable for gaining plant-specific advice.
