You're already thinking that this isn't gonna happen... aren't you?
So, before you go ahead and let that judgement reach its sad conclusion, just think about it for a second.
What if you could have a brilliant home garden with all you favourite fruits and veggies thriving right in your backyard?
You could have a windowsill of herbs and spices, ready to flavour your food whenever you want rather than running to the store every time.
You could go picking flowers in your own backyard/fire escape/patio just to cheer yourself up!
You could be the inspiration for many of those people who think this can’t be done.
So you see? You aren’t just contemplating growing a home garden but about making a lifestyle choice that will make your days so much better! And the best part is that with today’s technology, range of products and information, you really have all that you need to help you get started!
Here are some of the doubts you've probably had.
- Just no time to fit a home garden into my incredibly busy schedule.
- I don’t have a green thumb/ I don’t have the talent to grow the plants that I want.
- Where’s the space?? I barely have any room for a home garden, how do I find the space?
- My city is too hot/cold/dry/rainy and beautiful plants could never grow here.
- I could just buy plants from a store and decorate my home.
- I don’t know anything about growing plants, I could just be setting myself up for failure.
- WHY should I have a home garden anyway? Isn’t life hard enough already?
Truth be told, all these are pretty valid points and it’s quite natural to be afraid of failure. But then, opinions should change with changing times and the modern world has answered so many of these doubts!

The internet is your friend because you get all the real information you need on growing the plants that you want. Not only that, but so many myths have been debunked online to ease your passageway to becoming a gardener!
It’s a fantastic way to relax and recuperate after an incredibly busy day/schedule. If you can somehow make it a part of your day then it will positively affect everything else too!
You don’t know if you have a green thumb or not, unless you give it a try. So many people, busy with unimportant work, miss out on something that could really change their life.
The meaning of ‘home garden’ has evolved quite a bit in the past few years and you don’t need a great deal of space to make a beautiful garden. You can have living walls, tea cup pots, herbs on your windowsill, flower pots in the fire escape (leaving enough space to escape of course!) or stacked pots in one corner of the room. Visit Pintrest for some amazing ideas!
There are plants for every season so there’s no reason you won’t be able to grow some at your home. Just find out the prevalent temperatures in your city and find the plants most suitable to that!
Finally, yes you could buy these plants from the store but then you don’t get the experience that comes with cultivating a home garden. The sheer joy of watching that sprout turn into a strong plant is unlike you will ever experience, so why not just give it a try?
