Jake Gyllenhaal gardening

You might get a little starstruck every now and then, but remember, celebrities are people – just like us! They have their likes and dislikes and their hobbies, and there are some celebrities who love gardening as much as we do.

But just who is it that likes to get their hands dirty? These following celebs certainly have a green thumb…

1. Oprah

Oprah loves her garden – as you can see from all these beautiful edibles! She grew up on a farm in Mississippi, where her grandmother taught her how to make the most out of the land.

Now, she has a 42 acre estate in California where she has extensive gardens, including a kitchen garden for veggies like these.

2. Martha Stewart

Martha Stewart’s gardens are so extensive that she actually uses a drone to monitor them!

I interviewed Martha’s head gardener Ryan McCallister and found out some secrets behind the beautiful gardens and how they’re maintained. You can read it here.

Shakira’s hips don’t lie – and neither do her peppers or aubergines!

She shared this photo on Instagram after harvesting the veggies from her garden. Who knew this world famous popstar would have time to get her hands dirty in a veg patch?

Jake Gyllenhaal has been known to do his bit for charity, including the odd spot of gardening. Here he’s pictured tending to a garden at a high school in LA for Green Service Day and representing eco initiative Global Green.

He has also participated in charity work for The Edible Schoolyard Project, which encourages kids to grow their own produce and eat healthier food.

Zooey Deschanel isn’t just a funny actress – she also grows massive courgettes in her garden and then posts about them on Instagram.

Not only that, but she also cooks with her own produce, as seen in an Instagram post here.

6. Liz Hurley

Everybody’s favourite cheesy British actress Liz Hurley apparently likes to water her own garden.

Or is she just plugging her swimwear range? That hashtag kind of gives it away.

When she’s not being an iconic supermodel, Cindy Crawford is donning expensive-looking wellies and undergoing some ‘green therapy’ at one of her homes in Malibu, Beverly Hills or Canada.

In fact she loves gardening so much that she’s even been known to do it round her friends’ houses. Here she is in Amal and George Clooney’s garden with husband Rande.
