Gardener recommendation


Recommended Posts

Hi All

I just wanted to recommend Matthew Farrer- aka Secret Jungle

Matthew: 07808 876820

I searched on here for gardeners and had found a recommendation for him- I had 3 gardeners quote on the job and not only was he the best price but he actually took the time to understand what I was trying to achieve and gave me different options with different prices so I could make the decision as to what I wanted.

He was also the only gardener who really listened to what I wanted in the long term and took that into consideration (we had an unsightly concrete block at the back with a shed on it and the other 2 recommended covering the extra concrete to make it look more attractive where as Matthew knew I didnt really want it there and didn't seem to think it was that big of a job to cut it back- it was definitely a manual job and required more heavy lifting but he seemed up for it knowing that what I really wanted was more garden space and to cut the block back to the size of the shed)

Can send pictures of the before and after if any questions- as we were quite pleased with the end result and also just how easy he was to work with

Hi, I'm looking for someone to give my garden a make-over, and your recommendation seems sincere. I want to move a shed as well! I'd love to see a before and after photo, if possible and a rough idea of how much I might need to consider spending. Thanks

Not sure if he does fencing- you may just want to ask him

He?s pretty honest- when we spoke about potentially wanting a little brick wall he recommended someone else and basically said he COULD do it but it?s not his area of expertise and would give us recommendations for other people he knows clients have been happy with

    • The Peckham Coal Line proposals (which frankly I had forgotten the details of, and never knew the council had made any contribution toward) were an interesting idea worth exploring at the time. A £10k contribution to a feasibility study that was mostly paid by private donations is pretty good value. Obviously those struck by #southwarkderangementsyndrome will say this thing the council did 8 years ago is literally the end of Western civilisation. https://www.peckhamcoalline.org/blog/feasibility-study-1-year-on
    • Hi, Im new to the area, just moved down from Hackney, and expecting in April.  Love to be added to the group if possible. Thanks!
    • Another to consider is if when you purchased them, the chicken was kept in a sealed plastic bag as that will definitely contribute to them going of. I always wrap meat lightly in greaseproof paper and store it at the bottom of the fridge.  Just an idea. Hope you are feeling better. 
    • Chicken when it is on 'the turn' smells 'off' so easy to detect. When i get chicken thighs (off the bone and skinless) I cook within 24-48 hours, Cooked chicken keeps better so purchased on Saturday, cooked either Sunday or Monday morning and safe to eat. Did tests in A & E show food poisoning?
