When I was a very small child I would follow my Dad around the garden and, I think to get a bit of peace and quiet, he would find me something to do. As time went on I was given my own small circular patch of garden for which he bought lobelia, alyssum, pansies and petunias for me to plant and look after. I think he used to water and weed them more than I did though. I’ve tended my own garden all my adult life, in both the UK and Spain where I lived for 13 years. I moved back to the UK in 2012 and now have a small garden mainly filled with shrubs and containers. I have also worked as a temporary seasonal assistant at a local nursery sowing and potting on veggies, preparing spring and summer bedding and planting containers and hanging baskets for retail.
