Whatever the skill level, gardening often changes a person into something better.  Many studies have shown that being around plants lowers the blood pressure and calms the nerves, and one of the qualities of a good gardener is his or her love of plants.

 

One of the most important qualities that most gardeners possess and sets this hobby apart from many others is a good dose of patience.  Patience is not a vanishing quality among gardeners, a true gardener has bucket loads of this virtue, and waiting for crops and flowers to bloom teaches patience.

Determination among gardeners to see a project through to the end or at least until the plant flowers, and coupled with that is stamina, stamina is spending a whole afternoon edging the lawn or painstakingly digging the weeks from a lawn, these people have true grit, and value their hobby, it is not a ‘flash in the pan’ undertaking reserved just for the summer to see the pretty flowers grow, it is a year round project, year in year out.

 

Most gardeners have a sense of purpose, thus this purpose is one with a vision, being able to picture the end result is a valuable quality and will eliminate lots of unnecessary frustration.  Gardeners should have a clear vision when they set out to create a masterpiece, this vision may change somewhat between the start and finish but it is key to success.

 

Being creative is the fun part of the vision, and continually shows their creativity with new plant combinations and innovative ideas as what they want to see growing in their gardens.  Some gardeners plant up a lot of containers and move them about in a garden; they may choose geranium plants,for this purpose, in vivid colours, or just use bedding plants to give the desired effect.

 

Gardeners are a reliable and dedicated group, and anyone growing seedlings, bonsai, or creating hanging baskets festooned with wonderful species of plants such as begonia plants, or petunias, mixed with a variety of trailing plants can be a masterpiece for all to see and admire.

 

The unpredictability of the weather gives gardeners a good sense of humour, and the many tricks Mother Nature plays gardeners have learnt to live with it.  Many other things are sent to try the patience of a gardener domestic animals rolling around is prized plants, jumping into your prize lavender plantsafter a ball landed in the centre, they learn to grin and bear it, even if the plant has been grown from seed.
