gardening for a living

Posted: 23/06/2014 at 22:43

Good luck with your dream Kevin.  If it's within your reach, then grab it with both hands.  I would really love to take a leap of faith and change from working in an office to carry out gardening.  But the usual constraints of life sometimes hold us back, so at the moment I have to enjoy it as a hobby. But I like to offer advice if asked, help out and share my self grown plants with friends and family.  One day perhaps . . . . . . .

Just finished potting up plants in the greenhouse at 10.30pm.  Only stopped because I couldn't see anymore!  Anyway, some gorgeous pictures of your gardens guys.  I have garden envy.  Our back garden is coming along and I have set lots of perennials to grow on for next summer etc so my garden is evolving nicely.  I have had more time to spend on it this year, so it's becoming a labour of love, a hobby I'm enjoying immensely.  We are also living the good life with our allotment. Enjoying the soft fruits at the moment is so rewarding.   

I will have to try and get some pictures of both on here soon.

LesleyK sorry I only just saw your question about the red flower in my piccies. It's Lychnis chalcedonica. Or maltese cross as its also called. I have taken seeds from last year to try and grow more. They are only around two inches. The one in the picture is 3ft ish.
