Who does not love greenery all around, so calming and cooling to the eye? All the greenery has been disappearing due the concrete jungles that come up in its place. Clean, fresh air seems to be a luxury that only few are able to enjoy. In the fast paced and cramped life of today, gardening seems to have become a forgotten hobby. Either people do not have time to spend on it or there is no space in the modern living environment of cities for people to even think about gardening. Despite that, it is interesting to note that gardening is picking up as a hobby and activity by many urban homes.
One of the main reasons for people indulging in gardening is to ensure a regular supply of healthy and organic home grown food. Pesticide filled fruits and vegetables are wreaking havoc with health of the people today. The wide range of fatal illnesses and diseases are the result of pesticide rich vegetables and fruits available in the market. The fresh flowering plants also help to clear the polluted air that we breathe in. This has encouraged many families to get their hands dirty in rich fertile mud.
Gardening is a wonderful hobby that relieves one of all kinds of stress, which they face in daily life. It requires a lot of patience to take care of the plants. Terrace gardens and balcony gardens are gaining popularity now. More and more individuals are planting flowers, fruits, and vegetables in pots in their gardens, terraces and balconies.
Decorative and flowering plants enhance the look of a place and garden, however if you want to grow organic vegetables and fruits, these too can be grown in pots. The advantage of potted plants is that you need not water them every day. The moisture in the potted plants is retained for a couple of days keeping the plant safe from drying.
