#SaraReads: Essay- My beautiful garden

My Beautiful Garden

Ahead of the holidays, my school entrusted us with various activities like  collecting of leaves, flowers and sprouting of beans. These, arose my interest  in the environment so, I decided to plant a container garden in my balcony.

There were already pots and containers and fertile soil in my house. I asked my father to arrange for sunflower seeds and small rose plants. I took the pots and filled them till the middle with soil, after which I sowed lemon and papaya seeds. In the containers I planted tomato, coriander, capsicum and chilly  seeds. All the seeds were collected by me from the kitchen.


My father made a vertical self- watering garden by reusing and recycling old  plastic soda bottles that we hung on one side of the wall of my house and we grew money plants in them. Within a weeks’ time, the shoots sprouted out and I started watering them in the evening. Now, once in every fortnight, I spray water soluble fertilizers. I also sit with the gardener to assist him and learn the methods to maintain the  garden.

After months, my garden is green, colourful and looks picturesque. I am very  satisfied as I have channeled my energy and efforts to help the environment, while creating a picturesque view for myself to unwind my stress and make me smile.
