Quotes For Gardeners



Compiled by Michael P. Garofalo

From the Spirit of Gardening Website



"Little Garden gods,
Bless the time of sowing,
Watering and growing;
Lastly, when our sunflower nods,
And our rambler's red array
Waits the honey-bee's labours,
Bless our garden that it may
Beat our next door neighbor's."
-  Cottage Garden Prayer  



"All gardeners know better than other gardeners."
- Chinese Proverb  



"People who don't really understand gardening think of it as a patrician and benign hobby.  That couldn't be further from the truth. To serious gardeners, it's blood sport."
-  Cynthia Kling, Down and Dirty
