Hi, I am planning to start a terrace garden in chennai. I only plan to use  containers.

What is a good ratio to grow flowers especially roses and tomatoes ? I have a bag of red soil. I intend to buy coco peat , manure and vermiculite.

What ratios have worked for you?  

Also where can I find panchagavya and perlite in chennai?  Thanks for your help.

You can get panchagavya from Kaivalya nursery in Annanagar. I will leave the rest of the questions to the experienced.

I am not sure why you need Vermiculite. Best is to compost at home using the kitchen waste and use that as potting medium with lots of organic matter like sugarcane bagggase, dried leaves in the mix and keep adding amrut jal once in 15 days which is a excellent food for the micro organisms of the soil and keep the plants mulched with dried leaves always..Mind you that first couple of years of the gardening would be spent mostly in building healthy soil and expecting miracles in the first year will be little over stretched....Once the soil is built with lots of organic matter then your garden will produce in abundance..
