With the weather warming up now, people are getting out in their gardens and starting planting. Personally, I really like gardens, while I don’t have the space for one at my current place I’d love to have one later and grow all sorts of veggies, fruit, and flowers! Right now I have some succulents and a small planter with green onions I get to use for cooking~

If gardening is also a hobby you like this Korean gardening vocabulary can help you. The best way to practice is to use Korean for something you enjoy of course, like talking about your flowers and plants! So with that, I’ll get into some general gardening terms and vocab, plus some common things people grow.
