Five Peas is a local business run from my home north of Whitley Bay. I have limited the distance that I expect to travel to 30 miles from my home but will consider other options on request.

My 2014 prices are £20 for 2 hours including travel costs, with discount for longer bookings.

I am happy to give you a quotation for other general gardening work e.g. clearing and tidying, turfing and seeding new and old lawns, fencing, patios etc. See the Gallery for examples of my work and customer reviews.

If you planning to grow your own vegetables, you should identify 2-hour sessions over different weeks where I will come to your growing plot to help you with whichever of the stages of 5 Ps you want.

Clearly, this is not enough time for me to plan the plot, prepare it by digging it over, plant the seeds or seedlings, weed and water, keep the bugs off and pick the crops. I anticipate that you will do most of this, with help from family and friends if you like, and I will offer what I would term ‘critical interventions' at times of your choosing.

You will need to think about the growing season when you are planning your plot, and take this into account when booking my time. Typically, you will plan and prepare in the winter, plant and protect in the spring and protect and pick in the summer and autumn, but this will vary according to what you are growing and the local conditions of your plot. See also terms and conditions for more information.
