Gardening is the practice of growing and cultivating plants as part of horticulture. In gardens, ornamental plants are often grown for their flowers, foliage, or overall appearance; useful plants, such as root vegetables, leaf vegetables, fruits, and herbs, are grown for consumption, for use as dyes, or for medicinal or cosmetic use. Gardening is considered by many people to be a relaxing activity.

Nemo's Garden

A project called Nemo's Garden is all about building experimental underwater greenhouses off the coast of Italy. The submerged spheres house various plants including strawberries, beans and lettuce. They take advantage of the sea's steady temperatures and high concentrations of carbon dioxide. The spheres are anchored 20 feet below the surface and are kept at 79 degrees Fahrenheit and 83% humidity. You can check out the garden via livestream and see real-time data collected on the levels of oxygen and CO2 from the spheres.

New idea on sustainable growing and getting the most out of your garden space.

When growing green beans, people usually dread the harvesting season because the plants are very close to the ground, which may cause back pain from bending over. Instead, grow them on a trellis. The plants will climb upward, making it much easier and more efficient to capture every one of the ripe vegetables.
