Gardening is a hobby, involving the cultivation of plant species for their beauty, or for private harvest of their fruit or leaves for the kitchen.

Gardeners commonly grow annual and perennial plants for their ornamental flowers or foliage; shrubs and trees for shade, windbreaks, fruit, or their ornamental flowers, foliage or structure; and herbs to use for cooking.

Many gardeners enjoy the hobby not only for its end products, but also for the pleasure of working the soil, as an escape from modern mechanized lifestyles. There is also the challenging aspect of trying to grow delicate or rare plants, or producing new hybrids.
