it can be both. you can start it as a hobby and with much passion, love for gardening ang having a green thumb you can have it as a proffession or business. I have a good friend who started orchid growing as a hobby and some ornamental plants in it, before she just gave it to close friends on birthdays. now she has it as a big business, she earns on cutflowers and seedlings now she has so many varieties of orchids , cattleya, euphorbia and many others

Gardening is a hobby for me, an extensive one that I've noticed there is a demand for. I am strictly, although not certified, organic gardener. I don't use chemicals of any kind in my yard and over the past few years, some ppl that are just out driving around spot my yard and pull in to ask questions/get advice on certain issues they are having with their yard. Yes, I could easily make money on what I do which would turn it into a profession but I choose not to. Instead, I willing give out free advice and will help those interested in organic gardening get started. I love being in tune with nature which is why it's a passion of mine. :-)

It's just a hobby for me. I love the long gardening seasons here in the southeast. I moved here from N.W. Iowa and never had quite the long summers there.

It can be both it depends how far you want to take it, if you really love gardening you can do other peoples gardens and get paid for it, there are even degree's in horticulture. Personally I just garden as a hobby and to make my surroundings a bit nicer.

It really depand if you earning money with gardening. However in my view the ideal situation is when you earn money exercising your hobby.

i think this question will be similar if i ask "painting is a hobby or proffession? i paint for hobby, and God knows may be in future i make it a means for earning money, so at that time i will be a professional painter. its very likely for a person to be attracted towards nature, garden is a necessity of every home and for most of them its an hobby and whether you want to expand your hobby into a profession, reallly depends upon you
