I think that its all fair and well to follow your dreams but can you make a living out of it?
maybe an option would be to go part time and see how that goes. Of course its a big step but its a step plenty of other people take. Or look into a job in a gardening nursery or something.
Also what sort of gardening do you want to do? my brother in law is a gardener and he makes a living out of grass and hedge cuts but obviously you need the outlay to buy the tools.
At the end of the day if you can afford to give it a go why not! maybe speak to your work about a career break, or some unpaid holiday to see how it goes.
I know a girl who started off making clothes in her spare room who has just opened a shop so it can work
