I'm desperate! My health has deteriorated over the last few years, I am housebound and bedbound a lot of the time so can no longer garden. This breaks my heart as I still have plans I want to carry out, new plants I want, plants needing moved, divided etc. My greenhouse desperately needs cleaned too. I have tried many suggestions from people but always end up with people who only want to cut grass (I have none) and hedges. It's not as if I have a big garden I don't know where to turn and can't bear to watch it go downhill. Help!
Sorry to read about your health. In my area there is a local charity where volunteers will come and sort out gardens, among other things, for people who can't manage it for themselves. Perhaps there is something similar in your area? Your local council will know.
Sorry to hear that you are unwell. I am a professional gardener and I receive a lot of my work as i am affiliated to check a trade.com. Depending on what part of the ou the country you live you should be able to obtain a qualified gardener from this site. All the tradesperson are checked stringently for good work and recommendations.so you should be able to get a gardener in to carry out all the works you have mentioned
All the very best
I live in an area heavily populated with elderly and also disabled folk and nearly all of my patients have their gardens done by local firms really very cheaply.
Some will only do grass but a lot will do beds and other gardening tasks/cleaning paid by the hour, it's a matter of ringing round really and seeing who will do the work that you want doing.
Sorry to be negative but it would be better to get a friend or good neighbour to recommend a gardener who has worked for them
Sending hugs to you! There is nothing more frustrating that wanting to do something and not being able to. I think contacting your council is a great idea, also what about contacting Scope, maybe they'll be able to offer advice?
Where are you based? Maybe someone on this forum will be know of someone that could come help you out As Tetley suggested.
Also what about contacting your local Gardening Club, Hort Soc, etc - there may be someone with the urge to do more gardening than they have room for.

Cassie as Verdun asked earlier what part of the country do you live in ? No one will turn up at your door, we don't have your address but someone might be able to give you some help if you want it x
