Prune it Babyyy!!

Since Composting has already been taken care of; maintaining plants is only about pruning them. Pruning involves cutting off all the dried leaves,twigs and flowers. Similarly De-weeding involves removal of all the unwanted plants (weeds) that crop up in the pot/soil. Both pruning and de-weeding serve the same purpose of saving and utilizing the nutrients in soil for the growth of plant.

Dried leaves and flowers when not pruned continue to absorb the nutrition from plant thereby leaving less nutrients for the growth of plant. Once they are pruned, all the nutrients are channelized towards the growing or new leaves, flowering and fruition of plant.


Weeds, again, absorb vital nutrients from the soil and thereby leave less nutrients for the plants’ growth. Hence it is a must to De-weed all the pots and containers regularly.
