Hi All, I am a newbee to gardening. Started 6 months back as a fun and I have few flowering plants in my garden. Seeing them bloom makes my day. This has given me more encouragement to grow more. The more you get into this, it gets into your head.


I have

1. Succeeded - arali - about 5 varieties, jasmine - 3, rose - 8 plants, nandiyavaati - single and double, exora - almost all colors except white, green sampangi, okra, hibiscus - 3 varieties

2. In progress - lemon, mango, samanthi, bringal

3. Failed - tomato, beetel

4. want to try lot more


I dont know about what to feed the plant, so have not done anything other than adding vermicompost that i got from anna nagar TNAU and used to spray neem oil + dish soap when i see a problem. So far so good. But its time to feed the babies now as they are growing big and flowering more.


1. Need your advice on what I should buy and where? I live in SNR and commute to anna nagar on weekend.

2. Also what other flowers I can grow? (I am not even sure on what to ask when I go to the nursery and pick up some rose plant again, thats how i ended up with 8 plants)


Need your help. I am kind of struck.
