- Wild Flowers are plenty in our farm since we
mostly follow natural methods of cultivation. The
number of flowers tends to reduce in the dry, Summer months
with a splurt in their growth after the rains. We haven't
identified most of it but among the ones that are familiar
are touch me not, Leucas, ....Many of these are easily
identified based on the book 'Common Indian wildflowers' by
Kehimwal, published by Bombay Natural history society. It's
full of photos of the wildflowers and makes identification
very simple. Detailed list of wild flowers at Vanashree is
yet to be updated.
- Flowering plants- Among the ones that we have
added are Nerium, Almonda, Hibiscus, Jasmine, Cosmos,
Marigold, Nandibatlu, Kanakambara, Roses. Some of them such
as Nerium, Hibiscus and roses are thriving well. They don't
need too much tending though, other than occasionally
watering them. Several plants are still in the wish list and
need to be added. These include some of the plants that were
very common weeds.
