Actress Ishita Dutta says gardening has helped her stay busy during lockdown."I have grown up around a lot of greenery in Jamshedpur. We are very connected to nature and trees. We have a garden of our own at the ancestral house. I try and create my own balcony and kitchen garden. I put up a plant wherever I find a place," Ishita said.The actress says plants bring positivity. "They bring such positive energy and a lot of them have amazing medicinal values. I use tulsi, aloe vera, and quite a few others from my mini garden. I can go on and on speaking about my mini garden. It takes me right to my childhood days," she said.She parted on a note of caution: "Let's all stay within protocols. The pandemic is not over yet. Let's get vaccinated whenever we get the chance."
