In the world of fitness, gardening is considered an aerobic activity as long as it increases your heart rate, ie, racking, shoveling, tiling, ect, anything that gets your heart rate up. I was asked this about cleaning kitty litter boxes, also! I have to run up & down stairs to do that! So, yes, anything that gets your heart rate elevated is considered aerobic activity & should count as fitness minutes. Now, if you are sitting in your garden, as I have done, plucking out baby weeds or just putting in seeds, I don't think this is a fitness activity, any more than reading a book.
