Are you a gardening addict?

Hi all, I lifted this from the Warm Earth Magazines' Snip and Tips Newsletter (you can subscribe here), and thought you might have some fun with it. Btw, the image is meaningless, I just found it on the web and wanted to use it :)

Are you a gardening addict?

Find out by answering the following questions:

  • Have you gone to a nursery for one plant and come back with several?

  • Do you ask for manure or compost for your birthday?

  • Have you bought a new plant knowing there's no room in any of your beds?

  • Do you worry about your garden when on holiday?

  • Have you taken cuttings from public gardens or parks?

  • Is gardening more important to you than cleaning the house?

  • If you see a weed in a friend's garden, do you have an urge to pull it?

  • Do you have difficulty keeping your fingernails clean?

  • Do the staff at your local garden centre know you by name?

  • Have you gardened through meals or until it was too dark to see?

  • Have you ever got out of bed to check on plants?

If you answered yes to four or more of these questions, you're a gardenaholic.
Unfortunately there's no known treatment for the condition and it will probably last a lifetime, but don't despair.
The good news is that this is one addiction which is actually beneficial to your health.
