Gardening is perhaps one of the best hobbies that a more
laborious nature lover can take up. The reason why I choose to
call this hobby laborious is because it surely does involve a
good deal of physical activity. This hobby is not meant for
those nature lovers who simply want to bask in the natural
beauty that already exists. Rather it is an ideal pass time
those who want to make their own contribution to the nature.
In order to be successful in gardening one must have the
following qualities: -
1.) Besides having a love for gardening you should also have
the will and determination to pursue your hobby.
2.) You must be physically fit and agile. Laziness and
gardening are anonymous to each other.
3.) Learn to exchange your ideas and information with
like-minded people who can show an equal passion for
4.) Try laying your hands on almost any books, magazines or
articles that can enhance your knowledge on gardening.
5.) Be prepared to invest a small amount of your earnings in
purchasing the “Can’t do without”, gardening tools.
The world of gardening is wide and it has immense
for those who want to explore it with the right zeal and
enthusiasm. You can choose from indoor gardening, outdoor
gardening, landscaping, cultivating exotic herbs, growing
bonsais and thus the list is endless. However it is important
to do a fair amount of research work before delving into any
the above fields. You should master up the art of choosing the
right plants and also learn the techniques favorable for their
productivity and growth.
Growing plants is not enough. Deciding where the plants should
grow is also an important aspect of gardening. Nothing can be
more distasteful than a garden which has color clashing
growing all around in a haphazardly manner. So be careful
allocating the plants their respective locations. Arrange the
assortments of flowers in accordance with their heights,
textures and colors so that they complement each other without
diminishing the beauty of your garden.
Keep aside one day from the entire week to be your gardening
day. Generally week -ends would be a good choice. On this day,
equip your self with all the essential gardening tools and
accessories and get down to your work. If you have children or
friends who are equally interested in gardening call for their
assistance. The more the merrier!
Once you are done for the day clean your tools well and store
them in their right place. Be sure to maintain your gardening
tools because well maintained tools can give you years of good
performance. After all tools aren’t something that you can
afford to buy every week.
Whether you are an efficient gardener or not can be best
by your garden itself. So stop twiddling your thumbs and put
your green fingers to use. As far as gardening is concerned,
you have really put in hard work your efforts will never go
