A plant does not have to be a novelty or over costly to make you feel happy. The items on sale in the show are just for collectors or people with big money, it's a market thing and most wont survive in Pakistani climate after one season .

Start with less and you will feel fuller. When you plant a seed and see it coming to life and ultimately bloom after tender care and love you gave it :)

How happy would you feel ;)

Actually Tahir most are not novelties.They are rear plants.Why does a plant become so rear in specific climate i think you got my point. To impress others with costly plants not gardening.

Totally agreed Sir, most of the plants are not accustomed to our climate hence the nurserymen have to go through a lot of toil for growing and bringing them to bloom. We must first start with seeds as they are cheap, even if they are not successful it will not hurt our pockets. :D
