    I like flowers and intend to grow prize winning flowers in later life plus perhaps my own potatoes and onions however there's no money in the sector, your mostly working for charities dependent on government handouts (which at a time of austerity is not good) and public donation (the public is fickle). Even in management your still paid pitifully.

    Yes, I have. I even worked at Kew Gardens, for my work experience, because I wanted to try it out. However, lately I don't feel it's as fulfilling as I thought it would be, but I still find the concept fun.
