Although I haven’t undertaken a controlled scientific survey, my initial observations would suggest that those who visit gardens are generally of a “type”. These fine folk are generally middle aged and above, sometimes coast path walkers or family groups complete with sulking teenagers. Anyone under thirty is rare, except under duress (see sulking youths). There are complex reasons for this anomaly. Some are understandable, retired folk have more time, and some more unfortunate, gardens are often perceived as not places for the young and trendy. As my philosophy in life is inclusion not exclusion I was pleased to see this couple in the garden today. The rewards of horticulture should not be confined to a certain demographic. Share the love. Whether they just wandered in on a whim or took a wrong turn, I don’t care. All that matters is they arrived and they took photos and they said nice things, just like many other visitors. I’m not sure which particular tribe this couple belong to, if any at all, perhaps they would like to join mine. The Edge Tribe, we are a diverse lot, but jewels each and every one.
