Hello all, A number of visitors posted their answers on the blog, as well: 1. From nhnursery:
Because I enjoy being outside and working the soil. 2. From kclily:
I garden because it keeps me fit, thin and young.
3. From susan:
To sooth my soul, I remember my grandparents and parents love of the soil and I have it in my blood. This year I am planting a garden from scratch. So exciting. 4. From nichole:
It keeps me sane, There is something very peaceful about digging, planting and weeding until my body aches! It always pays off in the end even if things don’t go as planned!
5. From ChrisND:
I grew up with gardening (parents, grandparents, country living, farms) so gardening makes me comforted. I also like nature and exploration both of which are very much a part of my garden practice. No matter the size of the garden or plant I am happy with my own place to relax and contemplate. You can see them all at http://awaytogarden.com/why-do-you-garden#comment-397 –Margaret

Welcome! I’m Margaret Roach, a leading garden writer for 25 years—at ‘Martha Stewart Living,’ ‘Newsday,’ and in three books. I host a public-radio podcast; I also lecture, plus hold tours at my 2.3-acre Hudson Valley (NY) Zone 5B garden, and always say no to chemicals and yes to great plants.
