When it comes to choices of what to plant and what not to plant, a lot of thoughts go into considerations. However, the final decision always comes with benefits or rewards. One of the difficult aspects of this thought line is the consideration of what makes economic sense to you. In recent times, homeowners have chosen to use the spaces in their compounds for personal gains.
Moreso, maintaining the garden may come at a cost that owners may not want to bear. Economically, youll want to plant your vegetables because of their economic benefits to you. Planting your veggies and fruits will save you the cost of visiting the groceries more often and you can also enjoy your own home grown, organic produce. Whereas, planting flowers will fill your garden and home with beautiful flowers that create nice scenery and a pleasant vibe to be around.
It is impossible to not see the good in both vegetables and flowers, but the ultimate choice of what to keep or let go of is in your hands. Now lets look at both options.
1 – Flowers: Theres no way that flowers wont be an addition to the beauty of the environment, especially if there are different species of them. Flowers can either be grown for beautification, medicinal, culinary herbs, or for the improvement of other nearby plants through the transfer of nutrients. Planting flowers for any of the listed reasons (and more) may be a motivation for planting them in your garden. Moreso, the presence of nice-scented flowers gives you a relaxed mind and your environment will become attractive for passers-by. This creates a warmer atmosphere for neighbours and visitors. Well-nurtured, trimmed, and cultivated flower plants give an impression of how well you take pride in your home and garden. And if youre thinking of the economic benefits of flowers, you can consider putting some of them up for sale in flower stores for some dollars.
2 – Vegetables: Vegetables are consumables to humans. The importance of eating fresh vegetables as food cannot be overemphasized. Needless to say, that youll save money by planting your veggies fresh from your home. Eating fresh vegetables and fruits is one of the best health decisions you can make to stay healthy. Fruits and vegetables taken from the gardens are fresh, safe, and healthy compared to stale fruits and vegetables youll find in the grocery stores in town. These stored up veggies can contain harmful chemicals that could cost you thousands of dollars to take care of. The resultant injury or harm could even lead to death. Apart from the health benefits, you can save money on groceries by planting your vegetables.
Overall, gardening in itself is a healthy practice for some reasons which include, but not limited to it being a form of enjoyable routine, healthy exercise with great benefits to the body muscles.
