Gardening is one of the most therapeutic activities you can engage yourself in. Not only does it bring you closer to nature, but gives you a much-needed break from your day-to-day work and stress. And to help you with the same, there are a bunch of tools that not only make your life easy but protect you from the thorns, chemicals, and everything else that might cause an allergy or cut and bruise.

Let's read about some basic tools you must have for your plants.

1. GARDENING GLOVES
 

While Gardening can be very mind soothing, it can turn into a thorny and splintery mess without the right pair of gloves.

2. GARDENING PRUNER/SCISSOR

Now that we have our gloves on, let's get to trimming. Trimming and pruning are essential due to a lot of factors. Not only do they help discard the dead and infected parts of the plant, but seasonal trimming ensures that your plant grows uniformly during its bloom season.

3. GARDEN WEEDER
 

Alright! Now that our plant is clean, let's focus on the soil. Weeds and parasitic plants are very common, and their growth aggravates during the monsoons more. To keep your plant healthy and make sure that the food you are giving is taken up but only the plant, weeds need to be cleaned periodically. This parasitic presence takes up all plant nutrition and makes your plant spindly and less leafy. And to help with that, weeders are a very useful tool.

4. HAND CULTIVATOR
 

 

the next step post the cleaning process is the soil loosening. Why? Well. Loose soil is the ultimate mantra for a good root and ultimately, a good plant. If the soil is well aerated, the plant roots get enough space to branch out and grow healthy. Additionally, a well-draining soil mix ensures proper drainage, which in turn keeps your plant hydrated and happy.
