The only way you could sensibly garden for a living without transport for tools and equipment is to get a job in a large garden - private, NT, English Heritage etc - or else in the local parks department. You would also get on the job training in all of those places which would lead to career progression.

Thats what I'm after. It makes more sense considering I can't drive to various locations and tbh I prefer working in a larger garden.
There is a course a local Botanical garden which I wanted to take. But I wanted to make absolutely sure it wouldn't be a waste of time. If it can lead to career progression then I will take it.
[quote]I suspect that some kind of formal qualification would be required these days to get into most of the areas Obelixx has outlined. That would require time at horticultural college. One possible alternative would be working at a garden centre, or preferably a plant nursery, where you would be more likely to learn from the ground up (excuse the pun).[/quote] (can't multiple quote grr)
The problem is garden centres aren't known for being near bus stops, otherwise I'd be up there frequently and would of applied long ago :)
