our hair, trimming removes dead or damaged area and allows the plant to grow faster. Shape
them according to your desire but be careful so as not to damage sensitive buds or roots.

harsh put a cover on your sensitive breeds especially flowering plants to keep them from
drying and wrinkling. If possible put flower pots inside your home during extreme weather
conditions. Growing trees also benefit both human and plants as it provide perfect cover on
• Buy a good fertilizer brand – the soil contains essential nutrients needed by the plants
but some plants require additional fertilizer to keep them in utmost health. There are lots
of organic or synthetic fertilizers available in the market today, consult the seller if you
don’t know what kind of fertilizer your plants would need. Using natural nourishment like
compost fertilizer is also great and less expensive.
• Once in a while spray insecticide to keep harmful insects from invading your plants.
• Weeding is also needed to keep them from taking away the nutrients of the soil. If you
want to eradicate the weeds but lacks enough time you could use vinegar spray for a more
environment friendly substitute to chemical weed spray.
• Spare extra care and attention to newly transferred plants as they are not yet healed from the
shock over transferring. Gently water them and avoid touching often allowing the root to
cling fully in the soil.
Plants are like human too, they live, breathe and requires nourishment and attention. If you want to
keep them in the best of health treat them as you treat any living creature in your house.
