Definition of dirt gardener

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Terry:

A term used to refer to a gardener who isn't afraid to get his/her hands dirty.

There's a certain level of reverse snobbery around the term, as it implies that those who don't have permanently ingrained dirt and callouses are not real gardeners - which may or may not be true.
