The daily stress from work and city’s chaos can take a toll on your life. It can tire you and make you feel different sorts of negative emotions. You will need an outlet or hobby for this. But if you want a hobby that allows you to get in touch with nature, you ought to consider starting a small garden.
Building your garden does not have to be stressful. Otherwise, it defeats your purpose and the very reason you are starting one. What’s more rewarding about it is the connection you make with nature every time you touch the earth; seeing your seedlings grow can also make you happy.
Want to start now? Here are some pointers:
What to plant?
This is the very first thing you need to do. As you are a beginner, you should start with the easiest ones—those that are not high-maintenance. If you want a flowering plant, you can start with sunflowers, sweet peas, or marigold. If you want some food on your table, go for tomatoes or smell eggplants. You can also plant some herbs, such as oregano, rosemary, and dill.
Where to plant?
You need to determine where you are going to plant your plants. Determine how much space you need and find a space in your house where they can grow. Recommended locations would be the kitchen or a sun-room. Make sure that the spot has access to sunlight. Include in your list pots of healthy soil and accessories.
How to make it beautiful?
Your mini-garden should be quaint and charming so you should accessorize it. Other than the usual ones, such as mushroom domes and gnomes, you can go for more sophisticated ones, such as small fountains and large vintage copper garden planters from Authentic Provence.
Starting a small garden can help you understand that some things flourish with love and care—this wisdom is something that you can always apply to your life. Happy gardening!
