Hi all

Im prasad from bangalore and im a hobby gardner. I ve been gardening for almost 15 years now but in a very crude way. I had been maintaining plants on the roof top for years. I had wonderful roses, hibiscus, jasmine, cactus and many flowering plants which were almost 10 years old ! ūüôā

 

Off lately due to my concentration towards my work i neglegted my plants and had to loose them.

Now since  a month i have been working to get the glory of my garden back,

Fortunatelty i had saved all the pots and i am able to put in plants back to them.

Im looking out for some training where i can learn best practices for gardening and roof top gardening. I have tried out some vegetable growing too and need help in taking it forward to learn it more seriously.

I found out that this site is pretty good and its having lot of info.

 

Im glad to join this site and hope i get some good help/guidance for me to learn making my garden a much better place¬† ūüôā

 

Regards

Prasad

Great to see this exchange and to know the training contact address and phone number. Thanks Raman for that. Prasad: You must continue and please post your photos, roof area, the progress etc. We must get back to basic hands-on and one of the oldest human activity. The sight of the sprouting seeds and growing plants brings life into us.
