Gardening may be done in the following ways such as- 

  • Indoor Gardening- growing of houseplants within a residence, building or green house.  
  • Native plant Gardening- gardening that is done by adapting to growing plants of a native area.  
  • Water Gardening- growing of plants that are adapted to ponds or pools.  
  • Container Gardening- concerned with growing plants in any container be it indoor or outdoor 
  • Community Gardening-is gardening done by a community or people belonging to a neighborhood to cater to clean and beautiful surroundings.
