Favorite Garden Quotes

Talk about pent-up demand – I am so ready to get in the garden! Sadly, there’s not much gardeners can do when Spring is late and the snow continues to fall through the month of April. We haven’t had a spring this cold since 1965.

I’ve been pulling together some of my favorite garden quotes for a magazine story and also a few garden projects this year. I love incorporating quotes into my garden. I have some of my favorite garden quotes right on my picket fence. I just wrote them on my fence with a sharpie and they have stayed on without a problem for years! I thought I’d share some quotes from my garden and also some of my new favorite garden quotes…

Favorite Garden Quotes

Dandelion QuoteDo you carrot all for me?

My heart beets for you,

with your turnip nose and your radish face.

You are a peach.

If we cantaloupe, lettuce marry.

Weed make a swell pear.


Flowers were friends

April showers bring May flowers.

Mayflowers bring pilgrims.





Gardeners Emperors

No one forgets the flowers of childhood.






kiss of the sun

Too old to plant trees

for my own gratification,

I shall do it for posterity.




Fairy mill

And since all this loveliness

cannot be Heaven,

I know in my heart it is June.

That we always hold dear;

Good old summertime.

We come from the earth.

We return to the earth.

And in between, we garden.

Old gardeners never die, they just spade away.
