Have a green thumb? Houseplants provide much pleasure to a city dweller. Having a terrace garden or maybe a balcony garden or even a few potted plants right outside the door or in our windows seems like a luxury in the humongous concrete jungle where apart from other things, green cover is also a scarcity. The funny part is children, being born and raised in such cities find hill stations almost heavenly because they are just not even used to seeing basic greenery around them.
Hectic lives, frequent work-related traveling are few reasons that prevent us from having a personal green space. Seeing our favorite plant wither away due to neglect is not something everyone would like to witness especially the plant enthusiasts.
Modified lifestyles have led to the advent of new age products. We dug out three super flexible products to help you keep your green patch, green.
