I was a late convert and had no interest at all until my mid 30s. I didnt think that gardening was very rock and roll.
My interest really started when we bought our current house which had large gardens but was a right mess. At first I just hacked things and mowed the lawn.
The next step was buying plants not knowing what they liked or what looked good together.
Then slowly started to see that some things looked better in combination than others and that some grew better in some places than others.
It grew and grew and when my first plants from seeds flowered and then i started dividing plants and taking cuttings, I was hooked. Now it is a passion that I cant imagine being without, but I still love the rock and roll.
