The majority of mediaeval gardens and the first botanical gardens were herb gardens with plants used for medical purposes or herbs for savouring foods such as thyme, parsley, rosemary, fennel, marjoram, and dill. The word “herb garden” is now commonly used to refer to a garden of culinary herbs, and the therapeutic part is rarely considered. Because the bulk of the plants grown in herb gardens are native to warm, dry climates, they require a sunny location. Rooftop terraces The present inclination in architecture for flat roofs has made possible the establishment of lovely roof gardens in metropolitan areas over residential dwellings and commercial buildings. These gardens follow the same principles as others, with the exception that the soil level is shallower to reduce the weight on the rooftop, and thus plant size is limited. Plants are often placed in tubs or other containers, but elaborate roof gardens with miniature…

Several stems emerge from the base of smaller woody plants, such as shrubs and bushes. These plants attain heights up to around 20 feet (6 metres) (6 metres). They frequently represent the greatest portion of modern gardens, because their cultivation needs less labour than that of herbaceous plants, and certain flowering shrubs have extended blooming periods. Lilac (Syringa vulgaris), privet (Ligustrum species), spirea (Spiraea species), honeysuckle (Lonicera species), forsythia (Forsythia species), mock orange (Philadelphus species), and hydrangea are some of the most popular garden shrubs (Hydrangea species). Climbers are frequently used to soften the harsh lines of structures such as buildings, fences, and other structures. As an awning or cover on an arbour or garden house, they can give shade. Some species can also be used as ground coverings on terraces and steep slopes. Ivies, trumpet creeper (Bignonia, or Campsis, radicans), clematis (Clematis species), wisteria (Wisteria sinensis), climbing roses, annual…

Every gardener is worth half their salt should have an eye on the future. Gardening is after all closely related to how fast and to what form the plants will grow, in addition to the changing seasons, and what looks good when. Some questions that are often forgotten but need to be asked before choosing plants: How fast do I really want this plant to grow? Here’s what is interesting, we often choose plants because they are a decent size and have the ability to provide faster growth and faster sieving, but the fourth or fifth year we might fight a constant battle of pruning and shaping to keep the plant steady under control. Size is not everything or it gets bigger fast! It may look good now, but what will it look like in a month’s time? This question really needs to be asked over and over again when…

The experience of plants in the world is very different from our experience of animals. Since plants are immobile, they are in a state of acceptance and deep peace within themselves. Emotions such as fear, hatred, jealousy, possessiveness, etc. are completely unknown to the plant and will serve no useful purpose. On the other hand, plants are capable of experiencing a higher range of emotions such that we animals can barely conceive. At the same time, there are feelings that plants share with us animals, such as love, pain, joy, thirst, etc. It is the feelings we share with plants that provide the basis for our ability to communicate with them. Feeling with plants is not so different from feeling with people. For example, when we are about to have sex with someone who completely changes us, we feel a clear surge in sexual energy that connects us with that…
