Gardening requires a lot of water - most of it in the form of perspiration.

Charles Dudley Warner, My Summer in a Garden, 1871

Gardening is a matter of your enthusiasm holding up until your back gets used to it.


In every gardener there is a child who believes in The Seed Fairy.

Robert Brault

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.

These quotes are funny and true, Anneliese.

Unfortunately for me, when I garden, usually all I get is dirt under my fingernails! One small moss rose that was blooming provided breakfast for a bunny, till he had eaten it all.
