Plants and Flowers

Plants and flowers can add beauty to the house, whether it's indoor or outdoor. I envy houses with garden regardless of size, that's one thing you won't see in our 300 sq meter house. Yes we have big space in front of our house and there are four big trees namely mango, caimito and 2 chico trees that provides shading, however, you won't see grass and flowers place in planter boxes or any outdoor planters.

My sister-in-law and I attempted to plant small trees and flowers on plant boxes and slowly create garden, unfortunately, those plants died after a few months. I remember buying tomato and calamansi plants last year and the same thing happened, they all died and we accepted the reality that we're not skilled to grow flowers or any kind of plants, moreso, create a beautful garden. We may resort to hiring somebody to do the gardening and landscaping in the future.

After doing a little research in the internet, I learned tips and techniques on how to grow plants and flowers and there are numerous containers or planters available made of different materials like fiberglass, ceramic, stones etc. I guess for now, I'll be satisfied buying fresh flowers and placed them in a beautifully designed ceramic planter or vase.

I used to think that every plant that I care for would eventually die on me. kasi my first few attempts ganyan din namamatay. but keep trying,kasi nakukuha sa practice. that's based sa experience ko ha.

the floor area of your house is a decent size. or is it the land area ba yung 300 sq.m.? kung madaming space ang front lawn ang sarap i-landscape.

hi juliana,

I am referring to the lot area which is 300 sq m, actually there are 2 houses built, one for my parents and my own little adobe.

Based on your suggestion, I will try growing plants again, hope I will succeed in the end.

Thanks for dropping by:)
