My mum was a single parent Brumbull, she had me age 3 and my brother was 6 months old when our dad died. We had a postage stamp sized garden with a lawn in the middle and the borders were roses, with an apple tree in the corner. She didn't really have time to tidy the garden so I did it from a very young age, probably about 6 or 7, whatever wasn't a rose bush was a weed, so it wasn't difficult From young I loved seeing the garden looking tidy and weed free. I got my own garden at 18 and worked as an IT tech but always loved being out gardening so when I got made redundant 7 years ago I put some ads in local newsagents and the parish magazine to do some gardening to fill the time before I found another job. Needless to say, I never did find another job and am still gardening and now have a waiting list and working for myself has been the best thing I ever did.
