Our gardens are a great source of relieving stress. Looking at them brings instant positivity right in the morning and energises us for the rest of our day. With the right amount of care and attention, all seeds sprout into beautiful plants. It increases the greenery around you, bringing in fresh air and oxygen. However, their beautiful colourful looks call for a lot of hard work and understanding of timings and tools.
It is vital to understand the needs of the house and the plants. Different households require different types of plants. Busy households where all members go out to work would better fit with plants that do not need too much care or water. On the other hand, families that love to have vegetable gardens and have the time to water the plants judiciously can maintain the soil and ensure proper sunlight and rain can pretty much grow anything they wish to in their backyard. It is also important to understand the needs of the plant that you wish to keep. Certain plants grow only when they get the right amount of heat, so planting and expecting it to grow in a cold region is not the way to move ahead. It is important to match the needs to get the absolute experience.
Having a garden is not called a paradise just because of the pretty flowers. It becomes a paradise because people work together to plant and take care of the saplings. They spend family time and create memories in the formation of their gardens. When flowers begin to bloom, the entire garden becomes photographic. It helps relieve stress and provide fresh air. It is a good place to read a book on a comfortable day and a great place to think about things and make decisions.
Not every one of us has a soiled garden. Many of us live in flat systems without access to the ground floor. However, you can still have a wonderful garden. All you need to do is select the right pots. Now pots may not seem like a very big deal, but they are of great importance. The pot for each plant should be of the right size. It should allow the plant to grow and spread its roots. If the pot is too small, the plant will not get enough nutrients, become malnourished, and sometimes even die. The colour of the pot can also be chosen. It is your garden, and you can personalise it the way you want to. Some people put in the traditional rust painted clay pots, while others buy colourful plastic pots/ designed ceramic ones. The colour and texture of pots are very important when you plan to have an indoor plant. You then picture the lovely green plant in a pot that goes well with your interior decoration, giving an aesthetic look to your home.
No one said making a garden was easy. From sowing the seeds to the season end, gardening is tasking. Owning a garden is amazing but taking care of it is time-consuming and exhausting. This is why many hire professionals to look after their gardens for them. Having pots is not enough. There is a need to have a scabbard, garden towel, garden fork, head shears, fertilisers, seeds and most importantly, a garden hose pipe. All these tools help in growing and maintaining a wonderful garden. There are several other gardening tools that you may need if you live on the ground floor and have a large gardening area. These would include tools like a rake, gardening boots and gloves, wheelbarrow, lawnmower, watering can and fence.
Using the correct tools does not only refer to the above-mentioned tools; it also means your attention. If you talk to a plant every day, encouraging it to grow, the plant is more likely to grow and become healthy. All good things demand attention. You need to pay attention to how much water a particular plant needs, the climate it needs to grow in, the kind of soil, fertilisers and their timings. There is a need to pay attention to whether insects are eating away your plant, if there is too much sunlight burning your plant, and so on. Paying attention and observing is the key.
Many plants do not need a daily dose of sunlight and can be comfortably kept at home. These are the plants that are often put inside more tasteful pots matching the rooms. While outdoor plants have their needs, indoor ones also require your attention. People often forget to water indoor plants. Indeed, these plants are away from the sun, but they still need to be kept in moist soil. Dry soil will lead to their damage. There are times when you end up buying decorative pots to put your live plants in. You forget that the live plants need to be potted into pots that have holes at the bottom, which these decorative pots do not have. Always remember to put your plant near a light source. It does not matter much whether the light source is natural or artificial.
The best way to water plants and keep them fresh is to use garden pipes. They spread the water on every plant and make sure that the leaves are also cleaned in the process. Most of all, what your plant needs are your love and care.
