Glasgodan - For instance, specific 'Prof Gardening Insurance' from Direct Line doesn't cover for use of a Chainsaw. Using a 'go compare' style site to find insurance provides unknown insurance providers with full cover at £1000. Reduced cover without, Tools and Hire Equipment reduces down to about £250. But it is more about finding a recommendation from other Gardeners of a good insurer that understands the Horticulture business, that includes Chainsaw use, and does't cost the earth. As my son is not earning much as he is at the bottom of the ladder.

My sons just finished his City & Guilds Level 3 diploma in Horticulture, and is currently building his experience by working as an self employed Assistant Gardener for gardening contractor. Under the Head Gardener. The contractor has asked him to be insured.
Looking around the internet for public liability insurance / tradesman's insurance ends with the predictable waisting of many hours getting quotes, only to find that they don't cover for what he needs to be covered for.
He will be using a chainsaw from time to time, and has passed the relevant chainsaw courses. He will be lopping but not felling.
Does anyone have insight into the best insurance policy / company for a Professional Gardener?
