An event like Lalbagh flower show needs no introduction. It happens twice a year, on Republic day and on Independence day. Lakhs of people visit the place on those 10 days. This year too the flower show begins tomorrow and goes till 26th of Jan,2014. What’s special about this year? Many things are of importance. Kitchen gardening is taking lots of momentum(Yay!) and this year for the first time in Lalbagh flower show, they are doing to demo Hydroponics for the public. The best part is our store Garden Guru was chosen to design and demonstrate it.  When we got the news we were very excited to have bagged this opportunity. 

A while back in one of the meetings with the folks @ Department of Horticulture, I had shown them our different hydroponic kits. Their response was very good and they liked our design so much they wanted one for themselves during the flower show this year. So we are very proud to present you our Hydroponic DFT kit.This is our new hydroponic NFT/DFT kit. We have already completed trials and also successfully completed projects with this.

Who wouldn’t like the kit pictured below(from our trials)?



The flower show will be starting tomorrow 17th Jan 2014 and will go on till 26th Jan 2014.Like I said, one of their theme is kitchen/terrace gardening and using different methodologies in doing so. We were quite busy today in setting up the kit for display. I will let the pictures speak.


The place was decided.



Gullies are being placed.





Curious visitors started check it out as we set it up. Answering their questions is yours truly.



The completed demo of hydroponic NFT system in all its glory.



There is one thing missing from the kit at the moment. Plants! The plants will be placed tomorrow. The best thing about hydroponics is you can transplant the plant any time even when they are yielding. Cool isn’t it?


Here are some more pics of whats in store for you all.

Lettuce, Amaranth etc.



Also the dashing colors of cockscomb(Celosia).



Hope you all enjoyed watching the sneak peak of the flower show to be.

Do drop by in any of the 10 days starting from 17th to 26th Jan 2014. On account of our participation in Lalbagh Flower show 2014, our Store Garden Guru will be closed till 26th Jan.
