Hello Everybody

Hello Everyone


I am Amit, based out of Bangalore from last 10 years.


I was interested in gardening from my childhood days, started gardening in the pots during the childhood days when I was about 10 or 12 years old. However lost interest in gardening after I started staying away from home for studies and work etc.


From last few months I am developing that interest again, with the little space available in the balconies, I believe container gardening is the only option. The work and the efforts on this website by GG is highly appreciated.


With the motivation from the within and information from this website I have already started sowing Bhindi (Ladies Finger).


I hope we shall exchange lot of ideas and learn a lot.


In the meantime I would request you to help me prepare adequate soil mix for container, should coco peat be mixed with soil, if yes the what could be the ratio, quantity of manure to be used etc.

Hi Amit,

Welcome to this site and great to hear that you have already started growing a veggie.
With passionate people like you there is always more interaction.

Regarding the potting mix, Mix compost and cocopeat in equal quantities. This is a very good mix.
