#Gardening #BalconyGarden

The winters are nearly gone and it’s just the time to prepare for season turnover for plants. The springs in India are not long and they suddenly give way to summers. We can feel the heat even now in the afternoons. in this post, I’ll share my list of summer flowering plants. I’ve come a long way in Gardening.

It’s very difficult to take care of the plants since half of the plants we have are the winter blooms nearly dying and they hate the sun, on the other hand, the spring flowers are blooming and they need the sun.

My winter blooms are nearly dying:

  • Alyssum
  • Aster
  • Calendula
  • Dianthus
  • Pansy
  • Petunia
  • Verbena
  • Gerbera daisy

I hate to see them go but new plants are waiting to replace them this spring
