Hello friends,

Sorry for the delay in responding to your comments, and for the delay in updating the blog. November has been kind on my plants. We have enjoyed multiple harvests of some leafy vegetables and bananas. Here are photo collages that provide a glimpse of my gardens. Happy Monday!

  1. Hi Asha, Thanks for sharing the pictures of Spatika flowers(the pink ones). I'm a Bangalorean too and while growing up had these flowers all over...but now I don't see them at all. Somehow, I have been able to get the plants of violet spatika and have just got one flower so far..Would you be able to share the seeds of the Pink Spatika? My email address is Please reply. Thanks

    1. Sorry for the delayed response. Currently I don't have the seeds. Will save your email address, and write to you when I have seeds.


Hi friends,

Thanks for visiting the blog site. Please leave a message to share experiments at your garden or to send me a feedback about my experiments. Even a simple "Hello" would make my day!
