It is the best time of sapling plantation because in this time, the weather is suitable and soil is susceptible for plantation. I would like to request all countrymen kindly to purchase one sapling and plant it for beauty of nature and greenery of our environment and thus take part in elimination of pollution.
I ask countrymen to purchase fruit bearing sapling and thus prevent imports of foreign low quality fruits.
