May I point you to:http://geekgardener.in/sowing-chart/

 

You can certainly easily grow corriander and fenugreek. Chilli, probably not.

Hey, what should be the distribution of manure and soil? Might sound stupid but do I just mix them both thoroughly and then sow the seeds or it has to be in layers?

I would go with 1 part cow manure and 2 parts of soil. Mix them thoroughly and sow the seeds.

Hello Saritha,

 

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.

  1. Manure mixed Red Soil – Most Nurseries (costs around Rs. 70 per 25 KG cement bag.)
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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).

Hi Srikanth

Though I've worked on few plantings during my school going days with my mom, I'm very much new to gardening alone. Planted some glad`bulbs in cocpeat + compost mixture, they have started growing leaves, but very very slow, also have few jasmine sapplings which are struggling to grow. I also have a purple color december flower plant which is also in cocopeat mixture is facing some leaf problems, some spots found on them, nd getting dried. help me with organic pesticides, nd also gud flowering seeds

Hi Krishna,

I generally use 0.5% Neem Oil (5 ml of for 1 L of water) for pest control. There are many posts from some of the experienced people on this forum who have suggested usage of crushed garlic and chilli powder etc. Please search for those posts. Alternately, you can also search the net for organic pest control.

I am not sure what organic fertilizer would induce flowering. If it were chemical fertilizers then you could probably try potassium nitrate provide you nitrogen levels are not too high. Generally with organic I do not bother about micro management of fertilizers as I believe if we give a good balanced organic fertilizer to the plants, they will pick up whatever they need. You might want to look at the benefits of bone meal for flowering.

I hope the experienced organic gardeners will pitch in with their wisdom.

Smile Hi all, just registered. I stay in Yapral Secunderabad. I stay in gated-community apartment and there is light only for 1 hour in my balcony, as a result the plants which I planted aren't so healthy. Does anybody have any idea as to go about it? The society is not ready to allow me to use the terrace for gardening.

Hi Tej,

Most plants need sunlight to thrive. Did you explore Hydronponic Grow Lights. See: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb.....grow+light

Hi all,
Hope all are doing well.
I am Srikanth. We already have our senior so I would be equally gald if you can call be Soma,which is my first name.
I am A starter from Hyderabad. I live near Nagole. I am studying and I want to involve all my free time in developing the garden in the land within our house.
I seek your inputs for that.
To start with I want to develop the soil. The soil now is in a bad shape with a lot of rock and gravel. It seems to be slowly getting organic because of falling leave of some trees already there in the plot. I want to make to lot more better for it to support vegetable plants.

I am also planning on a roof garden. There will be no shade on the terrace for most of the day.

Happy to meet you all here. Smile

It would be very helpful if any of you can suggest me a nice vendor for some organic manure, seeds.
I am thinking of planting some legumes to help the soil . Suggest me if that is a good idea considering the fact that the soil has lot of small stones and sand grain is very course unlike red soil or clay.

I would suggest you get a bag (50 KG) of vermicompost and mix it well in your soil. You can get the compost and seeds at Hyderguda.

Thanks a lot Srikanth :)
Will do that.

Srikanth and others,
Please suggest some plants that I can grow on my terrace.
Also can I grow vegetables on terrace. I was wondering if I grow sem beans or Bittergaurd.
If not on the roof in the plot. Please suggest some thriving plants in gravelly soil.

@Srikanth, is there a way we can post pictures in here?

You can grow almost any vegetable on the terrace using pots/containers.

If the soil is enriched with some fertilizer the plants will grow without any issues be it gravelly or fine soil.

You can upload pictures to your picasa/flickr/ photo account and paste the link here.
