Garden Quotes

“A garden is a complex of aesthetic and plastic intentions; and the plant is, to a landscape artist, not only a plant – rare, unusual, ordinary or doomed to disappearance – but it is also a colour, a shape, a volume or an arabesque in itself”   ~  Roberto Burle Marx


never stop wanting more plants, my garden mentor instilled in me 20-plus years ago, regularly reminding me of another gardener, past 90, who still lusts for every new thing he can get a cutting of. I promise not to, until I myself am back in the soil. ~ Margaret Roach (


There are no gardening mistakes, only experiments.” – Janet Kilburn Phillips


The Meaning of Gardening

“Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.” May Sarton


“Just living is not enough,” said the butterfly. “One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.”  Hans Christian Andersen
