Virtual Consults

Sometimes it's difficult to know where to start when it comes to a garden or restoration site! Satinflower Nurseries is here to offer custom virtual consultations to help you create a beautiful space that also contributes to your regions biodiversity and pollinator health.

Virtual Consultations take place over zoom and are quick and easy, they include:

  • Site preparation guidance

  • Planting density, timing & schedule

  • Ongoing maintenance tips

  • Customized plant lists

  • Advice for your project or property

  • Ongoing consultation available

Virtual Consults are $70/hour, which is typically the perfect amount of time to obtain an understanding of your site so we can send appropriate follow-up.  If we need more time we can always schedule another meeting. 

The following questions will be asked prior to confirming your site visit:
  1. What is the approximate size of the area?
  2. What are your goals? eg. attract pollinators, resist deer browsing, control erosion, provide winter colour & texture, offer blooming plants from spring into fall, create privacy, ensure low maintenance, other?
  3. What kind of work have you done so far? eg. removed plants, added soil or mulch, tried plants/seeds that failed or thrived
  4. What is the sun direction and exposure? eg. full sun, south-facing
  5. What is the soil like? eg. heavy clay, sandy, wet in winter, dry in summer
  6. What are your barriers so far? eg. my huckleberry keeps dying, it's too hot for most plants I've tried.
  7. Anything else you would like us to know?
