Compost bins are a green solution to reducing household waste. This guide will give some clues of how to make compost that will benefit the garden and the environment.
Before the days of waste disposal units and regular garbage removal it was common practice to have a compost bin in the garden. Nowadays there has been a resurgence of interest in composting due to a heightened awareness of the need to recycle and reuse in order to protect the planet.

Banana peels can do wonders in the garden.
Bananas are a good source of phosphorus and potassium for us, and the peels do the same for our plants. They decompose quickly, so simply cut them up and add them to the planting hole for tomatoes or peppers. You can also use banana peels as an organic, side-dressing treatment for most landscape and garden plants.
This is a beautiful green plant in my garden. The leaves look so fresh and I simply love this color.
*As I also love Jasmine, which has got a very good fragrance, and also has some importance in poojas, I've planted 4 - 5 varieties of different types. One among them is 'Jaaji' (in our regional language here).
It's a creeper, it gives flowers mainly in the rainy season, especially in the month of June and July. We generally pluck the buds, tie it in a row and we call it 'maale' *
There is a Spyral Staircase from our Garden to first floor, and I've this Jaaji plant on both sides of the stairs, which looks very beautiful. I can pluck the flowers standing on the stairs.
These are few pics of the beautiful plant.
In addition to this, we have few more varieties of green plants in pots,near the main entrance of our home.
**OK Friends,Thank you so muc
As a gardener, we all get that fun itch to experiment, and virtually all gardening is an ongoing experiment. So, Early in May, about 2 weeks before the last frost I planted 40 peas seeds in a raised garden 4 X 8 with strings for them to climb, and then I planted seeds in 3 different types of containers. Two of them in pots and one in a hanging basket. I used the same soil for all pea seeds. They were all exposed to the same amount of sun, rain and watering. Here are the results and what I think is why they are so drastically different.
The first picture was taken on June 16 and the second picture was taken on July 17. As you can see from these first two pictures that my peas are healthy and growing and abundant.
