Gardens in flats in Palakkad – Is it even possible?, you may ask. It is not just possible; it is not as difficult as you think.
Of course, those with apartments on the ground floor will find it easiest to start a garden with a few potted plants just outside their main door or adjacent to their wall outside. But even if you’re living on the 10th or 15th floor, you can still have a garden.
Things become very easy if you have a balcony of course – you can arrange potted plants and also hang a few plants from the ceiling of the balcony in small pots. They will not lack for sunlight, and watering them is less messy. If you don’t have a balcony, you can have plants in tiny pots on your window sill – you can even make a shelf or rack on the window sill, and create your garden that way.
String gardens are fast becoming popular as a way for people in apartments to even grow at least some produce – say chillies, curry leaves, mint, and of course flowers.
But why a garden in an apartment? Because:
Living in an apartment you are essentially away from Nature. Having even a tiny garden in your apartment will bring you closer to Nature – a little green inside your house will make you feel relaxed and happy.
Gardening has therapeutic effects – it reduces stress, is good for eye-hand coordination, and is a mood elevator.
You can improve the quality of the air indoors – you know that plants take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen; by planting a garden in your apartment, you are giving yourself healthier air to breathe!
With a string garden, you need not worry about the fruits/vegetables/spices/herbs that you buy are full of pesticides, or even how fresh they are. Growing your own produce is also very satisfying!
Of course, this is happy news for those who love gardening – so now you don’t have to give up your passion if you’re moving to an apartment!
