Abstract:

Although there are many infections that one may acquire in the garden, some people have gardened for years without becoming infected, yet others may become ill after a rather limited time in the garden. Being in the garden presents a series of complex possibilities from an infectious disease standpoint, and the likelihood of acquiring an infectious disease while gardening depends upon many factors. Gardens are usually near the home and may be the closest that many people get to being in the great outdoors, especially in urban or suburban environments. The time spent in the garden is not nearly as important as the age and nature of the gardener, his friends, or his family.
