I think gardening is a bit like having children.
The first one you need everything, new if you can and when you go out you take everthing but the kitchen sink.
When number 2 comes along, you make do with what you have
Days out involve a bag with some bits in.
When number 3 comes along, you're not so fussy, second hand will do,( i bought a cot for 50p for my grandson) days out are a couple of nappies and a pack of wet wipes,
so back to gardening, you need to do every right at first, just like the baby, buy all the gear, most of which you wont use, as the years go on its bung it in and hope for the best, plants, like children will mostly come good in the end, whatever.
