Fantastic so far!!! We got a comprehensive site survey, where Rita herself came to check out our existing garden and give us her thoughts. We were able to fill out a questionnaire about our crop preferences, and even planned some future garden and landscaping projects. Rita arranged for soil to be dropped off and then brought us all of our seedlings a week later. She stayed and helped plant everything, leaving us detailed {and illustrated!} instructions for upkeep. Even our three kids under 8 are able to easily learn and help out!

We LOVE Rita’s Roots! Our experience with Rita’s Roots over the past three seasons has benefited our whole family. From the planning of our garden beds to the delicious food produced, Rita and her crew have proven to be knowledgeable and dependable. Their expansive selection of seasonal seeds and transplants keep us excited, and their guidance on organic approaches have been just what we’d hoped for in developing a home garden for our family. Keep it Local!

I moved here from the DC area and quickly Learned that gardening in this zone is different from in that zone! I found out about Rita and contacted her immediately. She came to my home told me the best spot for my garden and gave me so much information!  Now I buy all my plants from her and she provides me with a detailed guide that describes how to ready the garden and when and what to spray to keep the bugs and caterpillars away. And my garden is now flourishing!  There’s no way I could have done this without her expertise and personal guidance. Highly recommend Rita if you want a vegetable or flower garden in Charleston! – Janet Christ, Mt. Pleasant

Over the last 5 years, Rita has worked with our family and garden year round.  She helped us plan, plant, harvest, fertilize and even cook the delicious fruits and vegetables grown right in our front yard.  My children are enthusiastic participants in the gardening process because of Rita!  Her passion for gardening is contagious; we’ve caught the bug!

My daughter Micki and I attended Rita’s Spring Gardening Class this morning in downtown Charleston. We enjoyed every minute of it and learned a ton of information to “start gardening the right way”. If you’re interested in organic gardening, whether you’re a beginner or seasoned, this is the best gardening class I’ve attended. Rita is extremely knowledgeable and will get you moving in the right direction. Micki and I are excited to get started on our spring garden and we’ll definitely be back for another class. Thank you Rita!!!
