You get fresh vegetables and fruits whenever you want.
The next time you want a few leaves of sukuma wiki or spinach, you can just pluck them off your plant instead of running out to buy them. Plus, you don’t have to keep buying a whole bundle for just a few leaves.
You know exactly what you’re putting in your food.
Nowadays, with all the pesticides being added to crops, it’s hard to know whether the food is safe to consume or not. If you grow it yourself, you know that it is safe and chemical-free.
It’s not expensive
Plants don’t cost much and once they get settled in, all they need is a little water. Over time, you’ll save quite a bit on your grocery bill.
Plants repel mosquitoes.
If you choose your plants carefully, they can double up as mosquito-repellents, preventing those nasty bites and reducing your risk of getting dengue or malaria.
There’s an unbelievable sense of accomplishment involved.
You may scoff at the idea of getting attached to plants, but once you start caring for your own, you’ll know exactly what we mean. Each little shoot, branch or flower that grows gives you a sense of personal satisfaction.
