What is Gardening?

Gardening is the practice of growing and cultivating plants as part of horticulture.

Gardening provides a work out for the respiratory and cardiovascular systems and can improve strength, endurance and flexibility, helping to prevent problems such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity and osteoporosis.


Basic tools include: spade, fork, hoe, rake, trowel, watering can and secateurs.
