When it comes to gardening inspiration, pictures speak louder than words. You can read all you want about gardening practice – and it is important to actually know how to do it – but seeing a beautiful garden image can actually spark you into action.

We’ve carefully chosen the 10 best gardening Instagram accounts 2019 and we hope they will get your green fingers twitching and itching to get out there and create your own little plot of paradise.

Botanical Addiction – @botanical_addiction

This account is as much of an art project as it is a botanical imagery project. The compositions are striking; sometimes minimalist, sometimes bold and busy. Images of plants placed around the home will give you great ideas for indoor growing.

Erin Harding – @cleverbloom

Martha – @marfskitchen

This account is DIY gardening at its best. Martha documents the journey of her seedlings from soil to market on her London allotment. Expect to see lots of ‘down-to-earth’ shots of mucky hands pulling up self-grown fruit and veg.  After a quick scroll down you’ll be wanting to grow your own. Very satisfying.

Darryl Cheng – @houseplantjournal

The interiors trend for houseplants this year is personified by Darrel Cheng’s Instagram account. Combining garden greenery with interior design doesn’t get much better than this account. Worth a visit if only for the mesmerising botanical time-lapses that pop up from time to time.

Khaled is a self-styled ‘vertical farmer’ who specialises in growing up the way in various clever ways. In one photograph he highlights his use of over-the-door shoe organisers to grow greens and strawberries, which he then ties to a fence. Come on, that’s worth a follow alone!

Geo Fleur – @geofleur

This account gets on our list simply for introducing us to the phrase ‘plant shelfie’. Genius! This page is more than just ‘shelfie’s’ though, it’s a potted plant paradise. The compositions are very artfully created and will have you eager to nip to the local garden centre for a few plant-related purchases.
