5 Signs You’re a Garden Lover

Greens and blooms give you lasting positive vibes and happy thoughts


We have to admit, gardening is probably one of the best stress-relievers at home. It's easy, practical, and you can use the plants and flowers as extra home decor, too! But how do you know that you're a true-blue garden and gardening fanatic? Do you really need to have a green thumb? We've listed down a few signs below. See if you fit into each and let us know if you have more signs in mind! 

You keep searching for garden pegs

When someone clicks on your Bookmarks, what would they see? We're betting on Pinterest accounts featuring lovely gardens, mini green corners, and blogs showcasing a few gardening hacks! You just can't get enough of those charming photos that you want to recreate in your own garden. Of course, you're always on the lookout for styling tips and chic containers that you can add to your space.

You enjoy visiting plant shops and hardware stores

Given your newfound hobby, longer trips to the department store were replaced with hours of walking around the hardware store or plant shop to look for tools and other gardening must-haves. You've become a regular face in these stops that almost all of the store attendants know you and immediately offer the latest item the moment you step inside!

You know where to get the good stuff

When friends and fellow plant lovers ask you where to get new plants or the best soil, you know the answer right away! You're like a walking directory and your phonebook is complete with trusty contacts and suppliers. It doesn't stop there! You're also a resource person—ready to dish out tips on how to care for plants and suggest which ones are easy to care for.

You always have new plants

Once you’ve started gardening, you've made it a point to add one new plant every payday! You collect herbs, succulents, and you're even planning to start a mini vegetable corner.

You love to research

Of course, you don't just buy plants for the sake of buying and leaving them in your garden. You spend a great deal of time and effort just to make sure that they get the TLC and nutrients that they deserve. Researching and working on DIY hacks have become second nature to you! Learning new tricks never stops when it comes to maintaining a garden—whether it's a sprawling space or a condo sanctuary.
