What time is it? Summertime! Summer is the best season to enjoy a good soak on the beach under the hot sun. We can’t have that right now, with the pandemic and all. But hey you can enjoy the company of your beloved plants during this season.

There are many plants that love to grow in summer. Plants also generally grow more during this period in certain countries because it’s when the rain comes (for tropical countries), or it’s too cold in winter (for northern/southern countries).

Below we’ve compiled short summer garden quotes, as well as inspiring garden quotes to satisfy your summer cravings!

Wrapping It Up

Who doesn’t love summer? We personally think it’s one of the best seasons to get under the sun and enjoy it planting a vegetable or two. And sure, you may not spend it on a beach during these times.
