My top picks for Mothers day gift for a Gardener mommy
Just because you love gardening, don’t go overboard if you have a small balcony like me.Quality is always more important than quantity.When we grow with care, plants bloom.When you think it’s another chore, that’s something they feel too.
I believe a few plants improve indoor air quality as well as make unique home decor.I buy indoor plants from amazon, and also some other online nurseries.I like nursery live and chhajed garden too.
Exotic Green Indoor Oxygen & Air Purifier Plant Golden Pothose in Fiber Pot is the perfect start to an indoor garden.
Pick your plants carefully, depending on your home space, light and watering needs of the plant.
Having a few plants is like having another family member totally dependent on you.
Self-watering planters are a big help, if you have no one to plant sit when you are traveling. It’s also your best option ,when you are very busy and can’t water every day.I plan to have a light and water controlled green wall ,in my new home.Yes, that’s a plan.I heard they have set up something like that at Ecopark Kolkata.I am going visiting soon to check it out.For now, I am making do with these planters.

This small kitchen garden on the balcony rails looks so pretty.Doesn’t need much space.What you need is good planning and persistence.
Gardening gloves are a must.You must use good quality rubber gloves.Nothing fancy, just sturdy is needed.Also, a good pair of Shears
Kraft Seeds Garden Shears Pruners Scissor Gardening Cut Tools
is a must.You definitely want to avoid hacking away with your kitchen scissors.
Potting mix, mixed with a little soil helps to make the Planters light.It’s also best if you get organic liquid fertilizers .Planters make adding plant food difficult if it’s not in liquid form.
Grow light is something you may consider buying if you have little direct sunlight.Indoor or outdoor,plants will need light for photosynthesis.But their needs vary .
Now comes the fun part.I think even small balcony gardens can be dressed up.
You can try artificial green grass.Personally, I would love the real kind.Buy a few pretty plant stands or repurpose old tables, Amazon .wrought iron stands to make vertical plant stands.Have a small table hung from the railing.
Get a few folding chairs which you can use to make a small dining nook.Wind chimes
can make delightful music and you can hang them from the rails too.Interested in garden ornaments?Get squirrels, monkeys ,mushrooms ,fairies whatever your heart desires.
If you want the bird friends to feel happy in your balcony garden, you can hang a cute little bird bath.It will not only look good you will be blessed by the bird friends.Have you ever bought gifts for a gardening mom?Which one is your favorite?
