After completing a Fine Art degree a few years ago I, firstly wound up stacking shelves for Sainsburys (as Graduates do) for 6 months, then ended up, naturally, working as a Research Assistant for a soft fruit company for 2 years…go figure. It was great and here I discovered my love for working with plants. As my research work became creatively suffocating and I realised the stress of working with my boss was not worth the 18k salary, I decided to leave for a minimum wage 12hr/week contract with a local garden centre and blow all my savings on a Garden Design Diploma with The Cotswold Gardening School. I am now juggling two jobs, earn just enough to pay my bills and have begun my diploma and it is possibly one of the greatest decisions I have ever made in my life.
