Im New to vegetable gardening.taking gr8 tips from all of you.I really liked the hanging tamatoes and dahalias.

This is an example of optimum utilisation of space (hanging upside down container).can u tell me r these in shade or do they get direct sunlight.If yes then how many hrs approx.I might try as well with my tamatoes.Smile

Hope to receive such beautiful  pics again.

 

Happy Gardening

Thanks all.

 

Hello Shweta, the hanging containers do get abt 4 hours of direct sunlight. May be couple of hours  of indirect sunlight too. 

 

One tip on tomatoes...you can multiply your tomato plants really easily. Break off the suckers (the extra growth between the main stem and a leaf), plant this in good potting soil or plant it in ground itself. You will need to provide shade till the roots are established. Keep adequate moisture level.

 

I started off with 2 plants and now I have abt 7. You can give away some to your friends too.  🙂

 

Happy gardening

Hi Shweta,

 

You can grow small veggies/leafy items on the top where the roots don't run deep. I grow coriander leaves, methi, spinach etc. By the time tomatoes are established, you can harvest these from top.

Lovely Garden Biju. One question from my side. - How do you manage to keep squirrels away from your plant?  For me it has become an unending war. They eat the plants at the seedling stage only.. If you have any suggestions for me.

Hi Viny,

 

Luckily for me, the squirrels haven't caused any damage. I occasionally feed them with breadcrumbs or things like that. May be that's why they leave my plants alone. 🙂

 

Best

Lucky You are. 🙂

Here at my balcony they come to east the leftovers and the bird feed. They also take bath in the small tub which I have kept to offer water to the birds and as a return gift to it they destroy whatever I try to grow in the containers. I am trying to keep them away with naphthalene balls placed in the containers.

 

Fingers crossed..

very beautiful flowers and healthy plants

Where are you situated?

Can you share from where you source the seeds? I had tried seeds from biocarve.com .

Can you also share your success stories?

Please add captions as soon as possible

Thank you

I am based in California, USA. So the seeds were bought from couple of local stores here. All the veggies are grown from seeds and most of the ornamental plants are bought from nurseries.

I started the gardening activity around 3 years back. Initially it was just few Chrysanthemums in pots. Next year some more flowering plants were added and then last year, I added few veggies like tomatoes. This year trying my luck with more veggies and ornamental plants. So far have been successful with tomatoe, potato, radish, spinach, coriander, yard beans, cucumber, mint etc. I felt it was very easy growing tomato and potato with least care. I harvested abt 25 medium size potatoes from 3 pots/containers so far which isn't bad. 🙂

The weather gets really cold (around 50 degree FH) during night even during summer. So some of the plants go dormant sometimes. Otherwise it has been a great journey (thanks to my parents and wife). 

 

Thanks

Biju

I wonder whether it will be possible to grow these plants in bangalore because of climate difference. I will find out about them.

Keep the good work.

I bet you can grow them in Bangalore. These plants love warmer climate.

 

Good luck
