The text reads:


A sower, a grower, a latin name knower

A nurturer, reaper, a tidy lawn keeper

A seeder, a feeder, a determined weeder

A border designer, a seedling aligner

A researcher, a planner, a lawn mower manner

A greenhouse potter, a staker & knotter

A welly wearer & love of fresh airer

A potterer, toiler, a keen top soiler

A harvester, snipper, a log & branch chipper

A landscaper, lopper, a well-equipped chopper

A sprinkler, spader, a plant in the shader

A vicious deadheader & shaper of bedder

A forker, a clearer, a sprayer & shearer

A mulcher, a flowerer, it looks like a showerer

A raker, a hoer, an autumn leaf blower

A composter, wirer, and sometimes bonfirer

A border maintainer, a planter & drainer

A kneeler, a bender, a builder & mender

A slug resister & nature assister

A ground cover lover & old garden glover

That’s what makes a Gardener!
