"VERY windy here this morning so cleared a customers large greenhouse of tomato & pepper plants then put a thick mulch down afterwards so managed to stay out of the wind mostly. It was a job I was saving for a rough day like today. No work this…"

"I have a 3-section x 11 ft straight ladder, wide base, and use it for high dense hedges that can easily take the weight of a ladder leaning up against them. The 3rd section locks out to give a support like a swing back ladders.

I don't often work in urban surroundings but when I do I am amazed at the state of the soil I get asked to work with. At a children's nursery I work at in Cambridge I've had great problems planting as there is so…"
Yes! I can't bear good plants going to the compost heap!
I take them home (after permission of course!) and either pot them up after dividing them up more or plant them in my garden if I have any gaps.
Once potted up…"
I've had many jobs...cooking top notch food to managment...but gardening has always been my 'hobby'!
My last job was managing an independant clothes shop...one day a bright idea popped into my head...'I know...I'll give this all up and start my own buisness...doing what I love most...Gardening!!
So 7 years ago I did just that...I started off working for a small gardening company to get an idea of how the buisness works on a day to day basis...
I then went to college to make sure my knowledge was up to scratch...I now have an RHS horticulture certificate-I want to learn more and tackle garden design next. I had a few private gardens I worked in whilst doing this.
When the course finished I took on more gardens and started my own buisness.
I also grow plants in my small plant nursery.
Working outside with Mother Nature-best job ever in my opinion!
The gardens I work in are all sizes and all varieties...keeps me warm and busy and happy!
