INTRODUCTION

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

Landscaping

Landscaping is nothing but creating a setting that gives the garden a natural look.

Creating nature where it does not exist. A barren piece of land could well be converted in to a piece of art with a bit of imagination.

It is not necessary that one should own acres of land. Even a few square feet can be designed with all the features that define a landscape.  Meandering paths


that add decor to a garden as well as making strolling easy is considered one of the main features of a landscaped garden.

It is necessary that the highs and lows of the terrain are maintained too.

A water body which could be a waterfall, a cascade or even a pond gives a garden the right touch to elevate it to a class level.



A few artifcats thrown around will give the garden an artistic  look.







In doing all this a bit of the owner's personality should also be reflected in the whole concept.
