One is aplenty

So you say you don’t have a green thumb? Or you think Gardening is too much effort and you don’t really want to get into it? So here’s me telling you to do it with just this one. Start with any of these, one single plant and I am sure, you can still call it a Garden!! 🙂

The best way to make your Balcony/Window/Terrace/Backyard look dense, greener and colorful is by having climbers around. Just a single Climber is going to make it look as dense as 4-5 plants put together (or probably even more). So if you don’t want to have too many plants around but you would love to have that green cover – Climbers are the best way to go!!
