Chris's gardening business
For many years I played a very active part in the running of a sizeable and successful family business, which we went on to sell. I was lucky to have the freedom to choose what I really wanted to do next. I kept coming back to how I would love to be gardening all day as I am happiest when I am physically active. I wanted to run a proper business and didn’t really fancy starting from scratch. Whatever I did, it definitely had to be a quality business. I knew another Ed’s business owner and found out quite a bit about his Ed's experience from him. I was very impressed with the quality of everything I read online too. When I went on to meet Ed and the Office team, I could see that the Ed's set up is ambitious, professional, supportive and practical and they have a great brand too. I followed the finding out more process to the letter but my mind was made up from the very first meeting. The quality I sought was very obvious.
