What motivates both die-hard and casual gardeners alike to spend precious time digging, planting, weeding and caring for their gardens and landscapes? It is the huge sense of satisfaction obtained from the plants they have faithfully nurtured. Beautiful blooms, delicious homegrown fruits and vegetables, the cool shade from a stately tree, a cheery flowering houseplant and a patch of green are all worthwhile rewards!
