Garden Guru – Gardening Store in Bangalore
Remember, In my last post, I mentioned that there is a surprise waiting in store. Some of you might have already guessed.
I am opening a garden store in Bangalore. .
The store’s name is Garden Guru. It will be open from this Sunday, 8th 0f July 2012. We also have an online store for gardening.
I am in this venture along with another green evangelist, Roxy Philip.Roxy Philip is a hydroponic enthusiast and he has experience in growing lettuces in greenhouse in Denmark.
Please drop by on Sunday to my brand new store.
A little bit of history is required on why I came with the store.
From the day I started this blog, the main intention was the following.
- Promote urban gardening
- Share the knowledge on gardening and horticulture.
- Provide detailed methodologies for growing plants in the Indian context.
I think all of the above 3 were fulfilled (atleast to some extent if not 100%) in the last 4 years of this website’s existence. 1000s of gardeners visit this site every single day. But do all of them succeed.? People who are successful, continue to garden and people who failed, thought they don’t have a green thumb. Is there a thing called ‘green thumb’? People without greenthumb fail ? No.. It is several small things that annoys people who start to garden.
Most of the times it was the non-availability of the materials that killed the enthusiasm of budding gardeners. There is no other to way to solve this problem but to take things in your own hands. Another big problem in the gardening arena is below.
Most of the people don’t garden
those who garden don’t share
those who share don’t sell
and those who sell don’t care..
Garden Guru is an attempt to solve this problem.
