Hi 

I'm planning to start my terrace vegetable garden...i need help from the forum members to find good quality seeds, compost, and coco peat near by Madipakkam..or any whole sale shop/nursery in Chennai.

Also please suggest some plants to grow as a starter suiting the Chennai climate.

 

Thanks,

Revathi

also, methi( vendaya keerai). In tamilnadu, they harvest in about 10 days as soon as the cotyledon leaves open.

Hi Revathi, I too stay in Chennai and have been having a garden for about a year or so. We have Okra, Eggplants, Tomatoes (during cooler months) and Methi should grow very easily but make sure that you don't leave them in direct rain. Another important thing we have to do is to soak them overnight and then sow.

 

All the best with your garden.
