People are learning quickly, thank goodness for that. Because if they don’t they’d end up with no garden to tend to at all. But then again, perhaps not. Even if they had to switch the taps off, say that they had to, then some of their plants would still be able to make it on their own. They’d be relying on nature to take its course. There is no need for man-made interventions. Many of the cool succulents that could be bought for a song certainly have that ability.
They will feed off the morning dew that is produced. And when it does rain, they are able to capture water and store it away. The beauty of it, the natural beauty of it is that they would not need too much of it in order to survive and/or thrive. This has been a problem since time immemorial. Property owners, in their mistaken belief that they are doing right by their gardens, end up over-watering. It is water going to waste as well.
And the plants don’t grow. They drown.
It is a perennial problem that far too many homeowners have yet to take note of. Perhaps gardening is not for them. Perhaps their gardening should be left in the safe and reliable hands of landscape technicians who would also be nicely spaced to provide them with potted plants, both indoors and out, that would need next to little intervention either. All that would be needed is just a light spray from one of those recycled detergent bottles that you would wisely choose to keep.
Although it has to be said that said bottles would still need to be washed out before any further use. Happy gardening you all!Read more →
