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. There’s no known treatment for the condion and it will probably last a lifetime. The good news is that this is one addiction which is actually beneficial to your health.August 5, 2009 at 11:21 pm #424666OzmoeMember

My names Wendy and Im a gardening addict……:lol:August 5, 2009 at 11:51 pm #424668LearningMember
I really didn’t think I’d qualify; maybe just scrape in; but the only thing that saves me from a clean sweep – they don’t know my name!August 6, 2009 at 1:38 am #424669busylizzieParticipant
Well yes Im an addict to,:shy: cant say I have got out of bed to check plants, but have to check that hothouse was okay with gale force winds, and I have heaps of room for plants, so no, only to that one question. The gardencentre person I deal with not only knows my name but the whole family (small towns) one bloke said I should apply for a job there, as I am in so often. A good addiction to have.:tup:August 6, 2009 at 1:52 am #424670AnjaMember
If asking for worm farm counts as asking for manure or compost for your birthday, then I answered yes to all, apart from the graden centre people knowng my name…August 6, 2009 at 2:15 am #424671debby-leeMember
