Start Your Own Garden With Recycled Bottle Seedling Kit

Gardening is the most relaxing and stress relieving hobby. It is not surprising that many of us are quite passionate about it. Everything about gardening is good. It is very rewarding You do not only help in the propagation of plants. It also gives you pleasure from the time you sow those seeds until the time you reap what you had sown. In addition, you do not only get to eat freshly pick fruits and vegetables, you can also earn from it.
When someone is passionate about gardening, not even a limited space can stop them from not owning a garden. They would always find a way to ensure that their home or office is not without a garden or even a plant. Some would use terrariums to plant their favorite herbs, flowers or vegetables. Others use window boxes. While some would recycle water bottles. It is quite amazing using these water bottles for your garden at home. I also found some herb kits which use recycled water bottles as plant container. The Recycled Bottle Seedling Kit is a very convenient way of starting your own garden. It is also a perfect gift in any occasion. I am planning to give one of these Recycled Bottle Seedling Kit  to my niece who will be celebrating her eighth birthday this coming September 18th. I am sure she will be thrilled since she had shown some interest in gardening at a very young age. It is time that she has her own garden.
It is not too late to start your own garden. The herb kits can make a good jump start. If you have no planters or pots to plant your vegetable then you can recycle water bottles. This is hitting two birds with one stone. You are not only help in the propagation of plants. You are also helping in the reduction of garbage.

Food For The Soul
Flowers has been a great source of pleasure and happiness to many. Its beauty does not only bring a smile to anyone, it also relieves our stress. I am sure that majority of us give flowers to our loved ones to cheer them up especially after a bad day. They bring color to our offices, hospitals and our homes. They can also make a perfect gift in any occasion. It is hard to picture the world without them. Everything will definitely look dull and boring.

However, some flowers such as nasturtiums and pansies are not only beautiful to look at. Studies show that these flowers are also a great ingredient to our garden salads. These edible flowers are perhaps too beautiful to be eaten. But they are also too tasty not to.  Nasturtiums and pansies are also known to have healing properties which were used to heal colds and other respiratory and skin diseases. These are among the reasons why mom keeps a collection of Edible Flower Kit - Pansy and Edible Flower Kit - Nasturtiums in the house and the storage. It seems that every part of the house has either pansies or nasturtiums along with the other growing herb kits. The window boxes and flower pots are also full of these wonder plants. I was not surprised when she showed me her very own living wall of nasturtiums and pansies.

These wonder plants never cease to amaze me. God created them not only to bring us happiness or to cheer us up. They are also created to provide us food and medicine. It would definitely be a great place if we have flowers everywhere. They are food for the soul.

Plants Are Perfect Gifts

Giving someone a gift on a special occasion is natural thing to do. We give them a present to let them know that we care and we remember. There are also times that we give a present in exchange of a favor. But more often than not,  we give presents because we want to please the person who receives it. We may have different reasons why we give someone a present. But one thing is for sure, if the person who receives the gift is happy, we are happy too. Just like what  Carlos Ruiz Zaf√≥n said, “Presents are made for the pleasure of who gives them, not the merits of who receives them.”. 

More often than than when we give someone we love or value a present, we give a little part of ourselves. We wanted to be remembered through our gifts. It is mainly the reason why we have to be satisfied and happy with the gift first before giving it to someone we cherished. We do not give them just any gift. It has to be something special and unique just like the living wall on my mom's kitchen wall. The living wall is nothing ordinary. There is not many people who has this kind of decoration in their living room or kitchen. I gave all my efforts to grow those herbs on the living wall. It may have its own reservoir, but I see to it that it does not run out of water. I watched it grow everyday and made sure that it is free from diseases. I read all books about gardening to ensure that I give proper care to container plants. Seeing how beautiful, unique and useful they are, I am sure that anyone who receives it will be thrilled just like how my mom was thrilled when I gave her my first living wall project.

Gifts must not be always be bought by money. Most people appreciate it more if we made the gift with our bare hands. Hardwork and effort add value to the gift. Gifts must not always be expensive as well. The most important thing is that it came from our heart.
