If you’re looking for a bit of light-hearted fun with a garden theme, read on! I’ve rounded up lots of garden puns and garden jokes to make you smile.
As well as providing a giggle, these garden puns and garden jokes are funny caption inspiration for when you’re sharing pictures of your garden, plants or flowers on social media (my post on nature hashtags will also help you here). Pass them onto your green-fingered friends too!
There are so many garden puns! I’ve picked my favourite funny gardening puns here, but you can find literally hundreds over at Punpedia.
Ants in your plants
All dressed up and nowhere to grow
Herb your enthusiasm
Don’t stop the beetroot
Your good seed for the day
Eat, drink and be rosemary
All things must grass
Cutting it vine
You parsley the test
Get a twiggle on
Seed between the lines
Your good weed for the day
Just the thicket
Peas and quiet
Don’t moss around
Never a dill moment
A day in the leaf
Flower of strength
That’s a bit mulch
Berry the hatchet
Turnip the volume
In the eyes of the lawn
All clover the world
Just one of rose things
Soil of the century
Trowel and error
As far as the cacti can see
Turf the net
One trick peony
In on the ground flora
I beg your garden?
One more thyme
