Gardening - the Freelance Way

gardening, balcony, plant

Do you want to give a new look to your house? Just start gardening. A lovely time pass, that too without much expense. Do you think you need a big house with a sprawling area for that? Not at all! Even your window sill can be the location of your garden. All you need is enthusiasm.

I have a small balcony garden with many plants that have beautiful flowers and colourful leaves. Shoe flowers and anthuriums adorn my garden. There are creepers that camouflage the water-tank pipes beside the balcony wall. A curry-leaf plant adds spice to the garden.
Are you wondering how much I spend on manoeuvre? Nothing! Vegetable wastes make good food for the plants. Also, I add withered leaves and twigs to the soil in the pot. This avoids quick vapourisation and helps the plants retain water for a longer duration. Later they mix up with the soil.

What about pots? They also come free of cost. I have used the empty cans, tins and bottles. Home-pack containers are used as attractive outer covers. They are economic and portable and can be handled easily.
Now, what are you waiting for? Just start off by collecting cans and bottles. A few saplings from your friend’s garden can help you in ‘getting started’.
