Hello neighbors! We just moved here from Brooklyn NY and I am a gardening novice, but would love to grow a green thumb. We moved into a house in west Berkeley with some beautiful bougainvillea and lilly of the nile . We have only been here a month and they are already looking sad, and definitely thriving! (they were much healthier when we moved in). We have watered a few times ( watered only after they started to fade) but they don’t seem to be perking up.
I was interested in working with someone who could help me save the existing flowers, teach me the ropes on maintenance and possibly help with growing a few more things.
Do gardening tutors exist? Or anyone know a gardener who would be interested in teaching a little maintenance to someone who currently has a black thumb? Thanks in advance for any thoughts/suggestions!
