Hi All, very happy and inspired to have landed up on this site. Am from Delhi and am looking to setup a small terrace garden. Terrace would be a misnomer as its a walk-up apartment with around 100 square foot of concrete space free in front. Am looking to start off with some english herbs and a few vegetables - would the members here have any suggestions on what to plant? Also - considering the Delhi weather, would it be necessary to put up a shade net for the summer?
I would also be grateful for any suggestions on good shops to buy supplies from - seeds, pro trays, cocopeat and soil. I'm based in the Hauz Khas. Thanks for any help!

Hauz Khas is surrounded by nurseries & gardening shops. There is the Rajdhani Nursery in Jorbagh. It is a huge nursery selling all sorts of seedlings, saplings and plants. They also sell all gardening requirements like tools, seeds, compost & cocopeat. Then you have 'Argosy' in Chanakyapuri which sells all gardening requirements. There are smaller shops of this kind in Adichini on the main Aurobindo Marg. A little further away in Bhogal there is the "Kitchen Garden Store" on Bhogal Road. If you are the adventurous kind you can take a trip to Kapasera (Behind the IGI Airport) where you will find many shops selling gardening requirements and some even sell seedlings. Happy Gardening & regards.
