Hi Madhavi, Hi Srikant,
Me to from hyderdad. I am at HMT Hills near JNTU. I got interested in gardening very recently about a couple of months ago. Planted whatever I could source from neighbours, and our own kitchen....roses, marigold, corriandar, mint, methi etc., Didnt really start proper vegetable gardening, hope to start it soon. To keep myself motivated in the field i keep visiting GG's blog.
Actually I pass through HMT hills quite often - going from JNTU to pragathi nagar. We have school there SATKAMA high school, my children study there and it belongs to an NGO I am associated with. I am not familiar with roads etc in the area but know the place. If you are looking for seeds I do have some and also trying to source from GG. So if you need anything let me know we can order togerther.
I have been trying natueco way of making amirit mitti, and homemade recipes to get rid of pests. maybe we can all met up sometime, including srikanth

Welcome to the forums. Madhavi and Raju are a little dormant on the forums these days. I hope they are so busy gardening that they do not have time for posting on the forums :). I am sure there are quite a few gardener from Hyderabad on the forums.
Please let us know what kind of guidance you need. For vegetable gardening see the Sowing Chart.
Gardening Materials here are the sources.
- Manure mixed Red Soil – Most Nurseries (costs around Rs. 70 per 25 KG cement bag.)
- Gardening Tools – Chamundi Enterprises (Ph: 08455240518) Opp. Sangeetha Theater Ramachandra Puram. Hyderguda shops have more variety but this one is much closer to where you live.
- Vermicompost, Neem cake powder, Pongamia, Seethaphal seeds powder etc – Chamundi Enterprises – address and phone see above. Vermicompost costs around Rs. 220 per 40 KG bag or Rs. 80 per 10 KG bag.
- Cocopeat: 5 KG blocks costs around Rs 100 – Rs 120 per block. This yeilds around 75 Liters of volume when hydrated. You can get this only at Hyderguda.
- Neem Oil – You can get this at Hyderguda and also at Chamundi Enterprises. You get small packs of non Hybrid varieties. In case you want Hybrid seeds in small quantities then I suggest you go to Indo American seeds office in Domalguda.
In case you need a quick start for your vegetable garden, you should get ready to transplant seedlings. The only place I am aware of is the nursery in Hyderguda main road next to Bahar Cafe and opp Janata Seeds. I have a few tomato seedlings that I can give away (offer valid until Sunday July 29th as I will be going out of station after that).
My name is Subha and i moved to Hyderabad recently. I am in the Gachibowli area and am looking to start a small veg+herb garden in my balcony. Are there any businesses that come out and help set up a terrace garden here?
Also, any pointers to reading material to get started on my own will be appreciated too.
You are not too far from where I live. Unfortunately, I will be out of country starting this Sunday for a month. Hence, I cannot help much.
Anyway, I suggest that you read my reply to Saritha (a few posts above this one) in this thread for sourcing of the materials. After you have sourced the material, hire a help for the physical labour and I think you should be all set.
I am new to gardening and new to Hyderabad as well. And I more inclined towards growing basic herbs to start with. Can someone guide me with the following questions. I want to start with growing coriander leaves, fenugreek leaves and chillies. 1. Is cocopeat and vermi compost necessary? I have seen many articles and not all mention using cocopeat for coriander and fenugreek leaves.
2. If yes where can i buy these around Miyapur area? Also I dont know how much qty of cocopeat and vermicompost should be added if you want to grow herbs in a small pot to begin with?
Would be glad if any of you could help me on this
