Gardening during Monsoon

Monsoon is the best season for planting, and also for preparing the existing plants for taking in the full pleasure of nourishment. Planting trees at this time reduces much of your labour on their establishment and maintenance. All sizes of trees and shrubs can be planted during the rainy season if you give careful attention to watering. The best way to welcome monsoon is planting trees and preparing the existing plants for nourishment. Here are some favoured plants for monsoon gardening:

1. Yellow Bladderwort (Utricularia stellaris): These insectivorous plants grow catchy yellow flowers, capture tiny insects and animals in the bladder and digest them.

2.  Dew Flower (Commelina benghalensis): This lovely plant bears flowers that have two, shiny dark blue petals. The entire flower is enclosed in a green sheath, with only two petals protruding out. There are various species of this plant; a few have yellow or orange-purple petals.
3. Monsoon Cassia (Cassia tora): These plants can cover any extra patches in your garden. The pale yellow petals are set against the leaves.
4. Hill Turmeric (Curcuma pseudomontana): These plants grow along the ground and the small flowers that emerge from between the broad leaves are a pretty sight to see. The flowers grow in various hues including mauve-purple, yellow, rose, crimson and red. This is certainly one of the top monsoon plants for your garden.

Even though all the above tips are very easy to follow and they are very well known to everybody, due to lack of time and energy many cannot exactly follow them. Once we practice in the proper way, it will become our routine then. Try to grow a rose plant. One day if you happened to see the first rose blooming in that plant, you will feel that happiness of gardening definitely. Then, you will start to plant some small plants which may be of some use to your kitchen. This will give you a complete happiness. Don’t forget to use natural manure. Try to avoid more use of chemicals to nurture the plants. Plant more trees and shrubs, in organic way. Enjoy Gardening!
