Welcome to my blog. It is all about gardening. Click on the various links that you will find on the right side of this page and get yourself equipped with whatever you wish to know. Some of those links belong to expert gardeners as chosen by those in authority.

If you love yourself you will love gardening as that will help save planet earth.
The planet is on the verge of destruction but you can be the saviour
Start planting and see the difference.
It is disheartening to see priorities going topsy tury. People are more into plastic flowers, concreted surroundings, and anything that kills nature and the environment. This must stop and forthwith.
My call is for those retired. Adopt this hobby and you will never regret it. I am a senior citizen and I know what gardening has done to me.
Destruction of greenery is a sure way to destroying the world. Maintaining the ecological balance is so essential and that can be achieved if each and everyone contributes to greenery.
When you get up in the morning birds, flowers and fruits will welcome you. A new fruit, a fresh bud and a red shoot on a rose sapling could be more than treasures money can buy.
A time will come in your life when you no longer want human company but these mute but innocent creatures that give you more happiness than sometimes your very own family or friends could.
Growing your own vegetables, herbs and fruits will not only ensure good health but a wonderful pass time.
There are online shops that can send you seeds right at your door step. Even your garden friends could help you with cuttings or seeds on an exchange basis. What better joy than having a barter deal.
Gardening is an innocent pass time.
What starts as a hobby could transform into a paying proposition.
I gave up my 9 to 5 job and started my own business designing landscaped gardens. I felt like as some might say 'All this and heaven too' What better happiness in converting a passion into an earning prospect.
Hope you are now convinced there is more to gardening than someone just calling you a gardener

Bringing in the wild

Even roses were once upon a time found growing in the wild. Every flower that we see that has attained status were all once upon a time found in jungles and in the wild. Sadly though, some have yet to get the recognition they deserve.

A stanza from the poem 'Elegy in the Country Church Yard' by Thomas Gray comes to mind

“Full many a gem of the purest ray serene
The dark unfathomed caves of the ocean bear:
Full many a flower is born to blush unseen
And wastes  its sweetness in  the desert air"

Efforts should be made to recognise them and brought in. They are beautiful needing very little maintenance. Here are some that have a pride of place in my garden.

                                             Tiger Claw
                                              Black eyed Susan


                                       Railway Creeper
And many more.

Bring in the wild and have an extra ordinary garden.
