Ornamental Plants Overshadowing Other Varieties?


A thing of beauty is a joy forever. This famous John Keats phrase has been expressed in various occasions for various elements. When it comes to nature and flowering plants, this rule applies too. These days, people, to make their house look good, are planting many flowering and vegetable plants too. Gardening has become a hobby and is flourishing as a successful business now. Some people do it for revenues and income while some simply as a hobby.

However, the demand for plants has a great variation. It is a noticeable fact that ornamental plants are more expensive and in more demand than other plants. The reason is simple, they look good. For decoration purpose and for the house to look good, people prefer such plants. There is nothing wrong in decorating your house, but my complaint is that in such a scenario, the demand for other much more productive and essential plants are losing their demand and hence aren’t being planted in sufficient quantities.

Herbal plants like Neem, Basil and Mint rare of great medicinal use and other vegetable plants of all sorts are the major source to our food which is important factors necessary for our survival. With the increase in the demand of ornamental plants, there cultivation has increased which has led to the decrease in the cultivation land for other plants.

Man has already reduced the land for tress to grow and any plantation that occurs is wiped off and replaced with buildings and technology. In such a scenario, if we waste the remaining of the land, money and space in cultivating such plants, then it just worsens the situation.

Nature has always been impartial to us and provided us equal resources. It is us, who have been depleting it. In my opinion, the ornamental plants are a great source for display and hence should be cultivated in parks all together so as to view them as a collective beauty. People, on an individual level should grow those plants which they can utilize and maintain. A balance in nature is the need of the century.
