Eden made in Russia

Life in Russia is an everyday challenge – and so is gardening there. Although gardening can be pretty difficult in Russia because of the rough climate, Russians love it and mix work with pleasure.

From the biggest challenge for Russian gardeners, i.e. the unforgiving weather, arises the second challenge: the gardening knowhow. Russian gardening bloggers have extensive knowledge of what and when to do and how to do it best in the garden. The intense exchange of information is therefore vital for achieving good results with the gardening activities. This is even more important, as the favourite trend in Russia is kitchen gardening, which is more than just nice to do, as for instance in Britain. In Russia kitchen gardening is also a sort of necessity. When the harsh Russian winter puts an end to the autumn harvest, the urban gardeners proudly enjoy their homegrown vegetables and fruits.

For Russian gardeners organic gardening is not a matter of environmental protection or health, as it avoids chemicals, but above all, it is cheap. Russians, who live in the big cities and neither have a garden nor can afford a dacha, grow the vegetables in their apartments or on the balconies. Cutting costs is an important reason for the huge popularity of kitchen and organic gardening, but it is not the only one: It is also the creativity in building a personal paradise coupled with satisfying the Russian passion for gardening. The Russian gardeners do not spend much money on their gardens; on average it is just 34 Euros (45 $) per year.
