Agree with Mattbeer, if it's a passion you learn to get it right.....now and then.
Wish I had this forum when I started out. Made loads of mistakes because gardening for me when young was for old people who had time on their hands. So, if I can, I try help people avoid the pitfalls I came across.
Instead of boring accountancy etc, had I realised it sooner I think a career in horticulture would have suited me better. I had a spell of raising my own plants and selling them too and talking to, and "advising", them was very enjoyable.
