Gardening has few equals as a hobby. It's a healthy outdoor activity that lets people get in touch with the soil and produce object of use and beauty such as fruits and flowers. What's more it's reasonable inexpensive and suitable for people of all ages.
Gardening is essentially the art of growing plants for consumption and/or creating a beautiful environment. A garden is typically located to the front or back of a residence but gardening may be done on a roof, balcony, atrium or even a window box. There's also indoor gardening which involves the growing of houseplants inside a home, conservatory or greenhouse.
Gardening is rewarding both in terms of the pleasure of the activity itself and the satisfaction in seeing the fruits of one's labours. Few experiences can equal the pleasure of seeing ones own flowers, fruit, vegetables or other flora emerge from the soil weeks or months after planting and cultivating.
Other than the aesthetic pleasures gardening affords, it's also a highly pragmatic activity. You grow your own flowers, fruits and vegetables which confers a degree of self sufficiency. And there's something special about that connection with the soil.
