This winter season was fantastic. I had the best time pottering about in my garden.Planting ,pruning,watering,painting the pots ,giving organic plant food.
It was a large part of my afternoon routine with my little one.
5 Things I learn this season about my garden:
1)I needed to see healthy green leaves and flowers all the time.
I hated bare branches, empty pots.I had to grow something green.Sprouts and herbs came in handy.
3 plants which give quick greenness are: sprouts,spring onions and potato shoots.

2)Though I loved learning how to grow veggies,I adored sharing flower pics and videos everywhere .
3 ) I like edibles which are quick to grow .Like herbs.Basil and cilantro are my favourites.
4)I loved sprouting seeds and creating my own makeshift nursery. (It’s an old container with partitions )
I actually produced baby plants from tomato and cucumber seeds I planted.

5)You can grow anything indoors if you have water from the aquarium and a light source.
Solution :Aquaponic sets on offer everywhere or DIY.
I have a plan to review a few of the products on offer ,if possible (few of the really great ones ship to India).
Another wonderful thing I plan to check out are the grow lights.A lot of variety.Both in price and the claims they make.Yes I am a garden doctor too.
I have been writing some pretty niche posts for healthwealthbridge blog .
This is niche too😊.I have started calling myself an urban gardener (not just indoor gardener).
I seriously feel India and the world needs to embrace urban gardening vigorously.Thats the only solution , if we want the world to be livable for our children.
For that matter for ourselves !
For a greener world ,what have you been doing?
