A kaleidoscope of colors makes the front of your house the most beautiful one in town. Let's face it: you're a gardening fanatic. That's okay! There's nothing wrong in taking pride in your unique set of skills. Cultivating the earth and bringing out a bountiful harvest is one of mankind's oldest and most storied occupations. You're just the latest in a long line of talented gardeners who make beauty abound for those of us who weren't blessed with a green thumb.

Maybe you also have a bit of an entrepreneurial spirit. Maybe you want to make your own t-shirt with gardening themes that can help you and your customers flaunt your passion for gardening. You're in luck! Custom shirt printing has never been easier! There are so many t-shirt screen printing companies that specialize in printing mass quantities of t-shirts efficiently and at a low cost. And, in the age of the internet, it's never been easier to start an online shop to sell your product. You don't need a brick and mortar location with your own printing setup and lots of overhead. All it takes is a connection with an established printing shop, an online store, and the creativity it takes to make your home business a success! So you have a vision and a plan to put it into action, but maybe you are struggling to come up with t-shirt concepts that gardening fanatics will want to buy. Fear not! I'm here to give you five ideas for custom gardening t-shirts that garden lovers will go crazy for! Use this list to help get your own creative juices flowing, and soon your business will be a smash hit!

1. Simple Floral Patterns

This first one is obvious. If you are gearing your designs toward women who love gardening but want to be subtle about it, this could be the option for you. A beautiful flowery pattern shows the world that you crave beauty and like to display it for all to see, yet this design is still classy enough to go with any look. Simple floral patterns may very well be the simplest place to start when you first open your online store.

2. Pithy Sayings that Draw People In

Everyone likes a fund graphic tee! But oftentimes the cherry on the top is a neat saying that clearly communicates your interests and helps you find other like-minded people. Are you a plant whisperer? Put it on a t-shirt! Does gardening help you escape your adult problems that you didn't sign up for? Put that on a t-shirt too! The possibilities are endless! Whatever your shirts say, the most important thing to remember is that you aren't marketing to the casual gardener. No, you want to draw in the fanatics, the ones who share your passion for gardening and aren't afraid to show it off!

3. Puns, Puns, Puns

Everyone loves a good pun! (Sometimes). But if it's always the time to garden at your house, if you like to turn beet at your garden party, then this option might be the route for you! Again, the point of fun gardening t-shirts is to find other like minded individuals who share your passion for gardening. Puns are a fun way to build a sense of community around gardening. So don't just settle for the ones you can find on Pinterest. Think up your own puns! Ask your dad, he'll probably have a few good puns for you. Add crisp and clean graphics, and you'll have yourself a winning t-shirt!

4. Simple and Clean

Maybe instead of marketing t-shirts for people to wear around and show off their passion, maybe you want to design shirts that people will actually garden in. If this is the case, a simple design like a carrot or a wheelbarrow on a breathable cotton pocket tee will market well to the gardening circles you like to move in. The drawback with this is that you will probably have to find higher quality shirts to print on. If you want to sell this particular design, your shirt will have to be both functional and comfortable, but executed right this idea could make your business a big hit.

5. T Shirts For Moms, Dads, Grandmas, Etc.

One last demographic to market your t-shirts to are specific age groups. Maybe you have a dad in your life that obsesses over his garden? Make a shirt for him! You'd be surprised just how many people in your life know a gardening fanatic. Take advantage of this! Every gardening grandma deserves a quality t-shirt that lets everyone know that the only thing they love as much as their grandkids is their garden! Okay maybe that's a bit of a stretch, but you get the idea.

We've looked at five awesome design ideas for custom t-shirts. You know better than anyone that gardening is a serious passion, and gardeners deserve nothing less than the best shirts. So get your creative juices flowing! Who knows, maybe your designs will become the next big thing in the gardening community! Again, all it takes is a passion for gardening, a passion for t-shirt design, and access to a good printing shop. The rest will work out great!
