A botanical garden in the heart of the city needed $5600 every month for its upkeep.
15% of the amount would be required for purchasing new saplings, 50% on procurement of manure for the plants and the remaining on paying the salaries of the gardeners.
This month, the amount sanctioned for the upkeep was increased.
$700 more was spent on getting new saplings. The amount spent on manure remained unchanged.
The remaining 50% was used for the salaries of the gardeners.
