They say if you do what you love, you will never have to work a single day in your life! But when it comes to gardening it is considered a mere hobby; well, that’s not true. Contrary to people’s belief gardening can help you earn a fortune if practiced in the right way. 

In this article, we are sharing with you some out-of-the-box ways to make money from your garden. So READ ON! 

Become a Garden Coach: 

A garden coach is a person who has enough knowledge and experience to be able to convey that information in a systemized way to amateurs.  A garden coach is there to point you in the right direction, show you how to get started, help you to select what to plant according to the season & topography and how to care for them. As a garden coach, you have to provide one-to-one mentorship and guidance on how to accomplish particular gardening tasks. Although this is a new concept in India, with the right publicity you can start earning handsome money in no time. 

Grow & Sell Mushrooms: 

Mushrooms would be an amazing new addition to your garden. Not only are they a healthy food source for your own family, but you can sell them at the market and earn good profits. 

Mushrooms can be sold fresh, dried, frozen or even as pickles! Make sure you study local ordinances and market your mushrooms accordingly. Learn how to grow mushrooms for profit. 

Hire Out Your Garden For Parties: 

As well as selling from your garden you can hire out your garden for different purposes. For example, if you have a well set up garden you can hire it out for parties – we advise starting off with children’s parties as they do not involve needing an alcohol license and do not risk issues with noise pollution through loud music. You can charge the clients for your time, effort and resources, accordingly. 

Create Garden Art and Open Your Garden to the Public: 

If you’re a creative soul and good at painting, why not share your work with others. You could paint scenes in your garden if you are a still-life painter, or take artful photography if that is your passion. If you can make money from your hobby, you are going to enjoy your work immensely. Sell locally and online and share your work with friends and strangers. Or even better turn your garden into an art gallery and open it up for the public visit and may be hold auctions in the garden itself. 


Beekeeping is another way to make use of your garden to earn money. With one hive harvesting approximately 18kgs of honey, beekeeping is a sure-shot way to make a profit from your garden.  

From all the above business ideas it is clear that gardening is not just a hobby and not just a seasonal endeavor. So happy gardening!
