Klingon word: Du'Hom
Part of speech: noun
Definition: garden 
Source: qepHom 2016

AFAIK never used in a sentence.

(KGT 97-8):  A scooping implement, much like a garden trowel, used to remove food from a pot, is a {bo'Dagh}. 

(MO to Lieven, 1/2011):   [Maltz] said that ... {ghIn} ... could also refer to a group of buildings and accompanying grounds (gardens or whatever)--the whole defined area where the members of the religious community live or work or do whatever they do there.

 (KGT 89):  Agriculture ({Satlh}) is practiced to a certain extent, though it is common to gather uncultivated plants as well. Fruit or vegetables that come from a farm ({Du'}) are called either {naH} alone or {Du' naH} ("farm fruit or vegetable" or produce) ... The verb {yob} (harvest) is used to refer to gathering up plants or plant parts, whether from a field ({yotlh}) that has been sown or out in the wild. The verb meaning farm is {wIj}; that meaning plant (referring to vegetation of any kind) is {poch}. One may say {Sor poch} ("He/she plants a tree"), {lav poch} ("He/she plants a shrub"), and even {naH poch} ("He/she plants fruit or vegetables"), referring to the ultimate use of the plant as a food source.

tI 			vegetation (n)
'InSong  		flower (n)
*pochwI' 	 	gardener (used in "The Klingon Hamlet", V.1)
