Many Americans envy deeply the British Garden. Even suburban gardens like many of us have are the envy of the average American. My sister who has lived in America for many years always comments on the beauty of many average gardens, even some downright scruffy gardens, saying she wished her and her neighbours could replicate some of the gardens us average gardeners create.
I know there are many gardeners in the US, but I believe we, the British have a different attitude to our gardens.
Wealth isn't the key as in the article, it's passion and patience.
We are different to the US in many ways, as anyone who has been there knows only too well.
We are a patient people, and that is a quality lacking in much of America.
Don't get me wrong I admire much in America, but their attitude of now not later contradicts the very key qualities every good gardener needs.
It's only my opinion, but I know what I know.
