11 Easy Gardening Ideas for Seniors

Many people get a great deal of enjoyment out of gardening. There is something about growing plants that is in our blood and we are never happier than when messing with soil, seeds and fertiliser. But as the years roll on, gardening and landscaping becomes a more difficult chore. Seniors are not as strong as they once were and they often find it difficult to bend over or lift heavy weights. Digging sometimes becomes impossible. So how can you still enjoy gardening as a senior? Here are some tips to make it easier.

  • If you loved showy annuals, keep them for pot-plants and instead, grow perennials or plants that last for many years. This will save a lot of digging and bending over to plant them. There are many shrubs with showy flowers that will remain in your garden year after year with little effort from you.
