In 2017, the home and gardening market in the United States was worth approximately $272 billion. A number that's steadily on the rise, that's more than a few people trimming the verge, mowing the lawn, and tending their gardens.

It is, however, indoors and therefore acts a little differently than outdoor gardening. Plus, it's winter, too.
