As plant lovers we get inspired by working in our own gardens, it is truly a labor of love and so rewarding. The plant quotes that we’ve picked out really capture the love of gardening and the kind of care that goes into maintaining a garden space. We create a garden because we love the process, but also for the enjoyment it brings.
Whether you have flower gardens, cactus gardens, vegetable gardens, or mini indoor gardens these quotes are meant to bring a smile to your face. There are inspiring quotes here that will ring true to the plant lover with indoor plants as well.
Even if you don’t think you have a green thumb we bet you can find a plant that’s well suited for your experience level. We sure love having a beautiful plant (or many!) indoors because plant life adds so much to our home decor and they just make us feel so good.
A favorite quote of ours about gardening is that it’s a work of a lifetime and when the gardening spirit takes over, there’s no turning back. Whether you are an indoor gardener with a plethora of house plants or creating a beautiful masterpiece in your yard, plants make us all happier folks.
There are so many good things that come from growing plants, and one of the best things is that it can be therapeutic and a stress reducer. Our gardens are a gift of love we give to ourselves and future generations.
