    Hi, Iam interested in organic gardening. My sister's house is in Neelangkarai, as you know is quite close to Tiruvanmiyur.

    I would very much like help as it is very hard to find good quality seeds and natural pesticides.

    I am crazy about gardening I do grow a few veg on my terrace.Any suggestions are welcome .I am planning on starting my own composting lets see.
    I have those plastic pots last year I had planted the following :
    Leafy veg :palak/methi/ chuka kura ( looks a little like palak but is little sour )gongkura/thota kura /gangavallikura.
    Veg: bendi/brinjal/beans./Karela/snake gourd./drumstick
    others Tomato/mirchi/pudina /kothmir /curry patha .
    I get enough beans & brinjal but bendi not enough may be next year I should keep 2-3 more pots
    my karela I get only few at a time 3-4 not enough.
    well I add compost + neem cake that I buy .
    I also have manga engi/ manthakalika/ regular eni and manjal
    /omam/
    can you pl tell me where to get kasturi manjal
    thanks

    hai Jazz mom u may get a few rectangular pots 1 each for Palak /meth/ pudina /coriander .
    2- 3 pots each for brinjal/ bendi/ beans. In each pot sow 3 plants.
    Initially sow a few seed in each pot n sprinkle water every day In a week u will c it sprouting . once the plant is 3-4 inches either transplant them or cull the extra ones /give it to friend or keep more pots .The reason is each plant to be spaced 6-8 inches dis. water them regularly and u stat getting veg in 30-45 days.greens cut them and it starts shooting again
    U get enough for a family 0f 4. for soil I buy compost mix neem cake 4:1:1 ( compost : neem cake and soil ) .well do let me know what your taste are n I shall be happy to suggest
