WHAT TYPE OF GARDENER ARE YOU?


DEPENDS ON THE GARDEN!


GARDENER TYPES<br />

A growing number <strong>of</strong> us have no garden at all. Recent history has seen<br />

more and more <strong>of</strong> us migrate away from the countryside and toward<br />

city centres. One consequence <strong>of</strong> this urbanisation is a lack <strong>of</strong> space.<br />

More and more <strong>of</strong> us <strong>are</strong> living in high-rise flats and even those <strong>of</strong> us<br />

who live at ground level <strong>of</strong>ten do not have luxury <strong>of</strong> a garden to call<br />

our own.<br />

Even some <strong>of</strong> the gardens we do have <strong>are</strong> gardens in name only; it may<br />

have been paved over to serve as a makeshift driveway, or a dumping<br />

ground for all <strong>of</strong> the household rubbish too heavy to remove to the<br />

local tip.


GARDENER TYPES<br />

Some <strong>of</strong> us who have a garden have b<strong>are</strong>ly acknowledged its existence<br />

and possess only the vaguest desire to see it prosper, maybe because<br />

<strong>of</strong> work and family commitments draining all <strong>of</strong> our time, or because <strong>of</strong><br />

simple idleness, these gardeners never seem to get around to turning<br />

these thoughts into action and prefer instead to simply hope for rain.


GARDENER TYPES<br />

Then there <strong>are</strong> the sorts <strong>of</strong> gardeners who actually do something to<br />

warrant the name, whether this be just the planting <strong>of</strong> a few token<br />

flowers, or occasionally taking the time to mow the lawn. If you <strong>are</strong> <strong>of</strong><br />

a technical inclination, then you may have invested in some automated<br />

sprinkler and irrigation systems in order to monitor and maintain the<br />

health <strong>of</strong> your garden without having to get your hands dirty.


GARDENER TYPES<br />

An enthusiast gardener takes gardening a great deal more seriously<br />

than the sorts <strong>of</strong> people we’ve thus far discussed. For them, gardening<br />

is a pastime to be actively enjoyed rather than endured for the sake <strong>of</strong><br />

appearances. An enthusiast might maintain their own vegetable patch<br />

and eat fresh home-grown produce as a result <strong>of</strong> their endeavours. But<br />

just what, exactly, is so wonderful about this?


GARDENER TYPES<br />

Just as there <strong>are</strong> many different levels <strong>of</strong> commitment to gardening,<br />

there <strong>are</strong> also a range <strong>of</strong> different outcomes which that commitment<br />

might yield. Many people take a lot <strong>of</strong> pleasure from landscaping and<br />

maintaining their garden, adding plants and flowers that they prefer<br />

and creating a space that is unique and beautiful where then they can<br />

sit back, relax and enjoy the fruits <strong>of</strong> their labour.<br />

It may be that all you wish <strong>of</strong> your garden is that it look good and<br />

provide you with a nice place to sit and enjoy your summer barbeques.<br />

It may, on the other hand, be that your requirements <strong>are</strong> more<br />

practical.<br />

If this is the case, then you <strong>are</strong> in good company: more <strong>of</strong> us than ever<br />

<strong>are</strong> beginning to live the good life and grow our own vegetables. There<br />

<strong>are</strong> few more satisfying uses <strong>of</strong> a garden, after all, than to have it<br />

provide you with fresh produce all year round.
