    Digging out unwanted shrubs is the most difficult for me.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Netting crops is definitely the most difficult for me. I'm sure I must be missing something as it never seems to be mentioned as an arduous task, but I find it maddening, exhausting and lots of other negative words.

  • Planting bulbs at the correct depth in varying soils filled with bricks and cr*p, amongst existing plants and always in inclement weather😠 The specialist bulb planting tools do not help in real life/all soils but other than planting up a pot on a table not sure what product you could design that could help with this.
    Wearside, England.
  • Difficult physically or technically? (or both?)
  • I assumed technically, watering is a killer,big plot, plus lots of pots

    Not really enough appropriate options to cover the subject I'm afraid @17-Ray-a , and some odd wording. For example - 'Deweeding' is just weeding. 'Having enough space' isn't a task.
    The option 'Other' should give space for people to give examples. 

    I think you need to look at it again. I can't see how you can design a product that's suitable, but perhaps you could give us an idea of what that might be and we could suggest more options for your poll, so that the results would be more useful for you  :)
