My brush with Gardening



By Nikhil

I would like to share my experience in gardening, which is my hobby.

In gardening we grow plants and take care of them systematically. Gardening is an activity of cultivating and growing plants and flowers.

Plants and trees are an essential component of our life. Gardening allows us to connect with the environment and nature closely.

The appropriate amount of sun and shade are required as it may inhibit adequate plant growth. To grow plants, we first need to find the suitable soil for it in which it can prosper.

Then we have to place a seed one centimetre deep and water regularly, water twice a day in the summers and once a day in winters. 

We need to add fertiliser every 1-2 months. I took assistance from my father with organic manures and compost to get a better yield.

Plants such as rose, snake plant, onion and much more were grown in pots.  

I have also used plastic bottles to grow money plants and herbs to create an aesthetic look for my garden. Putting hanging nests for birds and making some space for animals makes the garden nature-friendly.
