Namastey from Agriculture Review
When I was 8 to 10 years old, I started growing plants in my home garden. At that time I knew very little about growing plants. I used to plant a new seedling from nearby places. All grew well. Whenever I spot a new gorgeous plant nearby my home I used to take out small plants that had grown naturally around the main plant and plant it in my home garden.
As I grew, I started growing different types and varieties of plants and now my terrace is fully covered with Vegetable plants, fruit plants, flowering plants, ornamental plants as well as indoor plants.
Till now I have grown Yellow oleander, Tulsi, Hibiscus, different varieties of roses, Neel lata, Pumpkins, Bottlegourds, Chilli, Snake plants, Areca palms, Tomato, Spinach, Corriander, Pothos, Lemon, Guava, Mango, Strawberry, Dumbcane, Rubber plant, Aloe vera, 9 O clock plant, Mint, etc.
When I was a teenager, I got busy with my theoretical studies in School and became distracted from the nature. But later on, I realized the potential of the development of Human civilization by connecting with nature especially in urban cities, and started growing plants again.
You may have seen people going mad from the lavish-looking lifestyle in urban areas. Because they lack ethics and connection with nature. Nature motivates you to keep growing yourself till you develop to its fullest.
Growing Vegetables and Plants in your home garden is an important part of this big plan of nature. While you grow plants in your home then you are not only growing a living being but you are also growing a best friend in your home.
You will help so many best friends to grow in your home and in return, they will also provide you with a better environment to live in. It is a mutual relationship.
I studied Agriculture Science and decided to share the knowledge and information with everyone willing to make this world a beautiful place by growing more and more amazing plants that are your best buddies.
Let’s now discuss the names of vegetables and plants that can grow in our home garden. There is a long list of vegetables and plants that we can grow in our home garden. But different plants require different kind of care like indoor plants requires less amount of sunlight than outdoor plants.
