Gardening holds a special place in my heart, evoking memories of cherished evenings spent at my grandma’s house as a child. Growing up, I hated being cooped up inside the house, especially during scorching days when outdoor play was restricted. So, whenever my grandma asked me to help her with gardening, I was always happy to help. It’s the escape I was always waiting for.
Over the years, I’ve gleaned valuable gardening knowledge from my grandma, although I must admit I’m far from being as skilled as she is. In today’s world, where social media dominates our daily lives, I’ve come across several gardening influencers who have proven incredibly helpful in maintaining my own garden.
If you, too, are seeking guidance from gardening experts, make sure to check out these remarkable individuals! They have a wealth of knowledge to share and can inspire your own gardening journey.

Meet Nuraishah. She is a vibrant young gardener who generously shares her journey and experiences through her Instagram account. As an advocate of organic produce and sustainable living, aside from sharing gardening tutorials and her bountiful harvests, she also communicates her way of doing things – from composting and natural pest control to reducing food waste and repurposing materials.
I really enjoy going through her Instagram as the content is easy to watch, and the way she engages with her audience feels authentic and welcoming. Unlike many social media influencers who only show their glamorous lives, she stays true to herself. Her passion for gardening is evident in every post, and it’s clear that she genuinely enjoys what she’s doing.

In addition to Nuraishah, I also had the pleasure of learning about another inspiring gardener who has grown his own thriving farm garden right outside his own home. Truthfully, Bone Wan’s garden is the ultimate goal I would like to achieve in my gardening journey. Filled with rows upon rows of fresh vegetables, herbs and fruits, it’s like a paradise of produce just steps away from his doorstep.
Seeing Bone Wan’s garden has motivated me to take even better care of my own crops and harvests. Witnessing him incorporate his homegrown produce into his daily meals is truly inspiring, and it’s a dream I hope to fulfil someday.
If you’re interested in cultivating your own flourishing garden, I highly encourage you to follow Bone Wan. His expertise and dedication to gardening are bound to provide valuable insights and inspiration for your own gardening endeavours.

Safiuddin, another gardener who captured my attention with his remarkable journey in gardening.
Safiuddin started cultivating his green thumb as a hobby during the MCO in 2020. While he practises both conventional and modern gardening concepts, it was his foray into modern gardening that truly impressed me. He took the initiative to build his own planter box, transforming his house yard into a stunning modern garden that is undeniably one of the most aesthetically pleasing gardens I have ever come across.
If you’re seeking to elevate your garden to the next level and create a visually captivating space, I highly recommend checking out Safiuddin’s Instagram account. His creative approach to gardening and his ability to merge modern design elements with the natural beauty of plants is truly inspiring. Safiuddin’s account is a treasure trove of ideas and inspiration that will help you take your garden to new heights.
