Home gardening has become one of the top leisure activities in the country. Well not just here but across the globe from different cultures and races have come to enjoy and love doing gardening. People have different purposes and goals as to why they indulge themselves into it or there may be no specific concrete reasons at all because they just love doing it since it is their passion or for some their pastime, their hobby, for some a way to earn extra income, for some to grow their own vegetables for cooking, for home improvement or it may be that it is required or mandated by their housing association to maintain their front garden or lawn. Owning a beautiful and fruitful garden at home is a pride and joy for every gardener. Anyone can say they have fun doing it simply because they love it.
Home gardening does not limit anyone to planting and growing vegetables and fruits only, it also includes building a beautiful landscape that creates a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere and environment. Because of this gardening has become an art. An art that requires careful planning, decision making and proper investment. And can also become almost a skill or talent for anyone who wants to perfect the art by trying different garden designs and landscape architectures.
The best thing about learning this ‘art’ or having a home garden is that you do not really need to go to school for lessons or spend loads of money for a special training. With home gardening all one needs to do is read a book, or ask a friend or someone already an expert for tips and ideas, or go online to research about it. One has to consider that to perfect doing gardening does not come overnight. Obviously one has to be patient to see the results over a period of time, maybe days or weeks or months depending on what one has done and what one wants to achieve like no one can expect his tomatoes to grow ripe the following day or expect the tulips to blossom the following week or like any other endeavors, there are times that you fail.
Home gardening entails more responsibilities than anyone thinks. As what has been said, careful planning, making the right decisions, proper investments should be right there – eliminating the pests, safety measures to follow, the right home garden tools to use, the research for further improvement and etcetera. But it would be a greater responsibility to have social awareness – to share to the community and teach and instill to the new generations.
