Forum News: Forming of Chitral Horticultural Society.

Land in the mountains of Chitral is scarce and villagers have hardly any holdings but this has not stopped them from pursuing gardening as a hobby. Each house will display flowers , in one garden 12 x 15 ft I saw 20 different kinds of geranium. The villager blend in poetry and folklore to make flowers a part of their culture and way of life. A school teacher, a barber, a cobbler, a clerk they all save from their meager sources to take an annual pilgrimage to corners of Pakistan seeking a new variety. All this encouraged me to bring these keen gardeners in Chitral on a platform to form the Chitral Horticultural society.

We are a small group that helps each other with best practices sharing knowledge. I have made their web site just to encourage our villagers into doing a bit more. What becomes of it I have no idea.

The Gardening Forum has been a great source of information and encouragement, we would love your members to link with our society and give us your valuable advise.
