I recently moved to Gurgaon from Chicago and the climate is definitely one thing I am still getting used to. I have a really big balcony and a lot of space in my apartment that gets plenty of light. I want to start my own little garden in my place to call it a home.
1. I NEED to grow strawberries - I absolutely LOVE the fruit and would love to have them grow at home- but I want some help in terms of how I should start a plant up - I know that growing them from seeds will take forever, and I am already on the lookout for a strawberry plant supplier here. If you have any recommendations or anyone you know that would be super! What variety would work best in the climates that this city goes through, do any of you have any experience as to what variety grows best? Also, what time would be the best to begin it?
2. I have already got some money plants all around the house. They are extremely easy to train and a great way for a beginning gardener. Versatile and quite lovely, if you trail them right. But, do you have any recommendations as to what other small apartment withstanding fruit/vegetable-produce yielding plants I could grow too??
3. Names of places/nurseries where I could go to get the help that I need.
Thank you so much in advance. I can't begin to tell you how excited I am already!
My mother has a wonderful garden in Hyderabad and I would love to replicate something like that here for when she comes.
