It is always a bliss to watch when our plants blossom in the garden. At my home we don’t have much of blossoming varieties of plants (due to the prevailing climate) but we have some necessary herbs which we often consume as food and for illness due to climate change.

At India, we used to term the remedies associated with the medicinal plants as HandMedicines or Grandmas medicines.

Below are some of the efficient plants which I have in my terrace garden:
Solanum_trilobatum https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solanum_trilobatum
Solanum_nigrum https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solanum_nigrum
Plectranthus_amboinicus https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plectranthus_amboinicus
Clitoria_ternatea https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clitoria_ternatea
Ocimum basilicum https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ocimum
Ground nuts

Now, it’s time to add my time to elevate them to grow better.

Supplies

I would be covering the supplies required in each of the section.

Step 1: PART 1 - Preparation - Creating Support for Creeper Plants, Sweeping and Arranging Pot Plants!

It is most important to provide a better environment for plant growth, I am keeping on an eye on this creeper plants everyday and have been thinking how to make it grow better. So came with this ladder like support made of wood and threads.

Supplies:
Wood, here I have used old wooden door/window frame
Mango tree sticks, earlier during last week sometime I cut some interrupting branches and dried them in sunlight
Scissors, to cut ropes & threads
Knives, to remove unwanted cleavage’s in the sticks
Chalk piece, to mark the positions to tie ladder to the frame wood
Ropes
Threads

Steps involved:
1. Tie the wooden frame sticks together with ropes, to form a long stick.
2. Position the long stick in the place where it is required for. See how it fits.
3. Mark the ladder like structure with chalk piece.
4. Tie individual mango tree sticks to the marked position in the long stick.
5. Now place the ladder support behind the plant and slowly place the creeper branches on to the support.

Added to the that, I added a long rope to both the ends (as shown in picture) for the other creepers to support across.

Step 7: Part 4 - Preparation - Simple & Handy Tool to Declutter Garden Space, Often!

While sweeping is the most often task being done at the garden, i wanted to do with ease so that I can do it quite often.

We have been using the commonly available broom with which we clean the space around the garden, where the green waste are mostly bigger in size.

So as part of this section, I have come up with a sweeping tool which will help us to do cleaning effortlessly. Due to lockdown, I have made with supplies available with me whereas the outcome solved my purpose. It is up to one to use any other supplies, to make things of their need.
