What a great thread. Loved reading the replies.
For me its a place to feel close to loved ones who also love gardening and share the joys it brings.
It's also a place where I feel a sense of worth, doing proper work that can make me ache and give me bruises. The desk job, for all its challenges, just doesn't feel like real graft.
The way it reminds you of how amazing our planet is, from the vivid colours that nature produces to the wildlife that make it home.
Gardening is a huge part of life for me.
