garden help

Posted: 28/07/2014 at 17:55

 

Hi All,

I have been working hard in my garden this year, my first year at my new house. Trouble is I am struggling with a full time job 3 kids and a wife who doesn't garden. I am probably putting in an average 15-20 hours a week.

Does anyone know of any schemes whereby folks volunteer to help help in gardens in return for a small amount or for free veg etc?

Would ideally suit retired folks who have downsized to flats and love the garden.

I can't afford to pay a part time gardener but wouldn't mind a companion or two to help and offer advice etc.

Any ideas?

 I'm think the larger seedlings are Purple deadnettle. Maybe they are the grass like threads hiding in there.
