    Which part of Lincs? - I know someone who was trying to find a jobbing gardener earlier this year.

  • I was made redundant and have sent out almost 400 job applications and have had only had 4 replies so I've decided to do something I like doing.

    i live 6 miles outside Lincoln itself

    Good luck Nick - rotten luck on being made redundant - been there, done that - a change of direction worked for me image

    Lincoln is probably too far north for you to travel to the Peterborough area just for one customer, but wishing you well.  image

    There's a bit of a resurgence in proper hedge-laying.  Could you afford to do a short course in learning how to do it properly - I think there's a bit of a demand across the country, especially in stock-keeping areas.
