Searching for seeds that have a good germination rate? Wondering where you can get that magic potion  known as panchagavya for your plants? How about soil, vermiculite, coco peat blocks, compost? Ever crossed your mind where you can find pomelo, strafruit seeds? And if someone can deliver all these home, you as a gardener would be on cloud nine.

I’m always on a quest to consolidate all the information I can when it comes to seeds and gardening materials. My little balcony garden has been pretty much dormant for the last four years for we get not even an hour of sunlight, thanks to tall Eucalyptus trees in the neighboring plot. First, I suspected the soil, then lack of nutrients, then the seeds. But, time and again, the tall, lanky seedlings assure me it’s the sunlight they are craving for. So, I just harvest them as micro greens.

I hope you find this list useful. I have shopped from some and have had great experiences. Every six months, when I visit my in-laws in the village, I get seeds from there as well and found those to have good germination rate.

    Hi kavi,
    Your Blog is really very useful and informative, I am beginning to start micro greens and some vegetables though the balcony is not very big but I am very enthusiastic to grow some home grown vegetables
    While surfing I happened to come across your blog which all the more encouraged to make a mini vegetable garden in the balcony.
    Will keep you updated when I am done
    Regards
    Manjunath Ramaswamy.

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Manjunath. All the best to grow your own kitchen garden.I can’t describe the happiness you’ll feel when you hold the first harvest in your hands – it may be an okra, two beans, or just a tomato. But, that happiness is not measured in quantity – the quality and taste of homegrown vegetables trump everything.
