Gardening tips for small homes

Home gardening has many benefits as it is a good hobby, enhances home appearance and is some sort of exercise. By gardening we can grew colorful flowers and also can produce seasonal fruits & vegetable. Large size houses have large gardens and are often maintained by gardeners. But small houses can also have gardens on balconies, terraces, backyards and roofs. Here are few tips for the beginners to start gardening.

Get information first

First thing before starting the gardening is to get some basic information about types of flowers, fruits & vegetables and also about seasons. After that we just need to make the plan about flowers, vegetable and fruits we want to grow. There are many modified fruit and vegetable plants that can be grown in small pots. After the planning stage we can start growing our garden.

Start preparing garden

For gardening we don’t need expensive pots. We can buy simple earth & terracotta pots and also can reuse empty plastic bottles. We just need to make sure that pots have proper drainage for water. Next step is to fill these pots with fertile soil. After that we can grow flowers, fruit and vegetable plants. We can use seeds and also can buy small plants from plants nurseries.

Placement of pots

Placement of pots is of great concern. Pots should be placed according to the need of plants and also for the beautification of interiors or exteriors. Some plants need strong sun, some need shade and some need both sun and shade. Therefore placement of every pot is of great importance. Whereas for beautification purpose, flower pots can be placed on kitchen widow, balcony, roof, terrace or near to main door.

Regular maintenance

Once we have grown our garden, it’s not the job done as we have to regularly maintain it. Watering and pruning is regularly required for healthy plants. We need to give lot of water to plants but we should not wet the leaves as this makes the pants sick. Pruning of overgrown leaves or branches brings the plant to good size and also increases the air circulation which is good of plant.

      Yes its true some boom is seen in property market
      People are afraid due to political situation and are whitening the black money

      In favor of government will highly increase the property prices
      Against government will decrease the property prices due to crack down on black money

    Dear Malik sb.
    I am developer of commercial projects in Lahore and Islamabad.
    There are rumours that Panama Case Decision will effect real estate market. Please guide about these effects as many friend are saying that before starting new project I should wait for decision.

    • PML Lions

      Yes there are many rumors in the market which are also one of the causes of property market slowdown.
      Panama case decision will effect the real estate market but its too early to comment. We should wait for the decision.
      I will write a blog about it when decision is clear as at the moment no one knows the decision.
      People are just speculating that if will be in favor or against the ruling party.

      Hope for best, In shaa ALLAH

      Yes there is something in the air. Every business is down like property market.
      Looks like Panama Case will destroy investments of many hundred thousand people.
      But property market is already falling due to high taxes.
      Even amnesty scheme has failed to boost real estate sector.

    Panama case will totally destroy the real estate market as most investors are the front man and real estate projects are best way to black money.

      Its reality 10 billion dollar is laundered every year to foreign countries and corruption by government officials is the talk of the town.
      After panama case decision if supreme court starts action against corruption. Property prices will be 70 percent down. Who can buy 500 sq yards bungalow in dha karachi with white money when price is 10 crore.

          Not only in Karachi but also in Islamabad and Lahore
          This is the fruit of black money
          Just imagine what will happen when crack down on black money will happen as expected soon

    Political turmoil and terrorism are few of the reasons that property market is down

    • Balqees rehman
      there are many reasons for property stagnation in Pakistan
      according to realtors, high taxes on sale and purchase of properties is also a major reason

      high taxes on sale and purchase of property
      law and order situation
      and also yes
      political situation
