Gardening came to him like a charm. Moving to Southern Germany to live, he bought a house with a small garden. So the family takes care of each other, has one more activity to build friendship and green space during the days of isolation at home due to the outbreak. On weekends, the children will help tend to the tree, such as watering or pushing the lawnmower, and the partner trimming the branches. If you like any kind of flower, the whole family will buy seeds to try planting,…
Dung shared: “Since having a garden, our two little friends have known to love sprouts from the moment they sprout. They both go to the garden every day after school to look at the trees and tell their mother how many trees they have grown. A lot. You also know the names of many types of plants and flower.”

In winter, the pine trees around the park remain, still green all winter, and when the snow turns white, it looks like there are beautiful sparkling snowflakes.

Ms. Dung loves roses very much, so she grows many of these varieties, from Honor of Veterans red roses, orange roses, Aloha climbing roses, Sunsprite yellow roses or David Austin roses, etc. The rose bush clings to the wall, blooms twice.

Mrs. Viet says that the temperate climate is perfect for growing roses. However, homeowners need to spend a lot of time on careful maintenance. He shared: “I take care of flowers like I take care of children. In summer, I give them plenty of water to drink. In winter, I cover the tree roots like a blanket and cover the trees to avoid snow. Roses begin to bloom from June, then from March to April. When the weather warms, I will fertilize so the plants can bloom. After the first bloom, I have to work hard to cut off the dead flowers and continue to fertilize so that the flowers can bloom again in August.”
For the prevention of pests and diseases, Bu Dung prioritizes the selection of healthy plants and uses several solutions made from ingredients available in the kitchen such as dishwashing liquid and baking soda. Neem oil is also an effective “cure” for thrips. Every day, Bu Dung spends 30 minutes – 1 hour tending the garden. In the rainy season, he catches snails with his own hands to help the flowers bloom.

Difficulties at the beginning of gardening are inevitable, there are times when the tree is sick, he has to cut everything and replant it from scratch. However, for this mother of two, gardening has helped her practice patience. Moreover, the garden carries immeasurable spiritual values.
“The garden is a place to connect family members. During the 2 years of the outbreak, my husband and I both worked from home, and the kids studied online for a long time. Without a garden, the whole family would be upset. very confused”, said Mrs. Dung.
