Grow Your Own! - Jimmo's Passion For Gardening

Many people believe that there is nothing better to calm your nerves and stimulate your creativity than digging in the dirt and planting seeds. In fact, serious scientific studies were conducted on the relationship between health and gardening. 

Scientists found out that gardening 
  • reduces stress and anxiety
  • decreases risk of such chronic diseases as heart disease and old age diabetes
  • improves physical agility
  • brings joy and happiness to your life
  • improves cognitive health and keeps your mind sharp
  • helps you relax and sleep better
And, of course, if you are growing vegetables in your garden, gardening improves the way you eat since there is nothing more delicious that freshly plucked tomato or strawberry that you have seen growing.

Next to the incredible health benefits, gardening not only helps you eat better, but also helps you save money. The initial investment you have to make in early spring pays back till late fall, and if you can build a greenhouse, all year round. 

The joy of harvesting your own fruits and vegetables cannot be underestimated. It cannot even be described. You have to experience it by yourself.

        

But what can you do if you do not have a backyard? Big city dwellers have a slightly limiting circumstances. I say slightly, because if you have a balcony or a windowsill, you can grow herbs, lettuce, edible flowers, tomatoes, and even strawberries in containers. Get the best organic seeds you can get, best organic dirt, and start your own container garden. For those who never did any gardening in their lives, there are books explaining how to grow food at home. Take a master gardener class if you can or ask for help at the local farmers' market. Many people who grow food in their backyard are willing to offer tips and guidance. 

To celebrate spring and his own passion for gardening Jimmo created the Passionate Gardener Collection that offers beautiful designs for people who love gardening and is going to grow with time, just like the plants in the garden.

April just began and it is not too late for you to start a garden. Enjoy the Spring, grow something and change your life!
