gardening with fibromyalgia

Anne Clune asked 14 years ago

I’ve suffered from fibromyalgia for c. 12 years. Lately it’s getting worse and I find it difficult to bend, kneel etc. I love my garden. Is there any way I can find aids to enable me to do more?

There are specialised suppliers of garden equipment used by people with arthritis and Arthritis Ireland might be able to supply some contacts.

It might be possible to alter the design of the garden somewhat to reduce effort and make access easier. If you consult , the Garden and Landscape Designers Association, they have designers in various parts of the country.
