Carmen is a qualified and experienced horticulturist, who studied at Pretoria Technikon.
After her studies she spent a gap year working as a volunteer in the United Kingdom at the National Trust, www.nationaltrust.org.uk/glendurgan-garden and in the Comoros, where she worked in the gardens of a prominent international business lady.
Back in South Africa she worked for 3 years in the retail nursery industry in Nelspruit in the Lowveld before moving to Paarl in the Western Cape to start her own business.
Carmen is assisted by a very capable team. Myrtle is our friendly and helpful assistant and she is based at the nursery where she is able to assist you with the availability of plants.
We incorporate our team's input in our decision making so that it instills a sense of pride and creativity in all who work with us.
What we do:
DIY Garden installation:
One of Carmen’s favourite services on offer is the assisting with placement ideas for DIY gardening. This service is aimed at clients who have their own labour and it enables us to give you a garden which can fit your budget.
Typically Carmen will come and look at your garden to get an understanding of what it is that you need. She will then give you advice and the information you need by drawing up a list of suggested plants and placements ideas to make your garden truly spectacular. After your approval, the plants will be delivered on site and Carmen will place them in the agreed locations for your team to plant.
Mayflower Nursery is happy to deliver your plants and delivery costs will be charged at a standard rate for the following areas: Paarl, Stellenbosch, Wellington and Franschhoek. All other areas will be quoted on an individual basis.
Once off Garden cleanups:
A task so often neglected is a regular garden cleanup. Carmen and her team are ready to help with this task. Please contact us to book the full team for a day.
At a rate of R300 per hour it is a worthwhile investment to get Carmen as a qualified consultant out to assist with the right plant choices to suit your pocket and your garden’s water consumption.
