Gardening in hanging baskets.Today, trees are vanishing from our villages and cities. We must not be careless in this matter as green trees are necessary for our well-being. We must conserve our nature for our coming generations. Soil erosion will be the result if there is shortage of trees. If we are unable to plant a tree, atleast we can try kitchen garden or hanging garden.
Today in our cities, hanging gardens got much popularity as it need only a limited space and our home can be decorated with natural green and thus our home be like a garden of fragrant flowers. We can plant in hanging gardens the plants like Tulasi, lemon grass, Brahmi, mint etc. The baskets can be hanged at the entrance of the house or placed in the hall or drawing room. We can use wire baskets, wooden baskets and earthen pots of different shapes and sizes. These should be light,attractive and easy to hang. The soil filled in the baskets must contain Nitrogen, Phosphate, Potassium and water in correct quantities. The basket should have a drainage hole and hang it in a water-content place. So try a hanging garden in your home and preserve our nature in our way, for generations to generations.
