    Hi Raghu,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Nice to know that you offer courses on Organic Terrace gardening.
    Next time you conduct it, please keep me in loop. I’ll try to make it.

    Our next course in slated for July 18th at our office. Will request my colleague Ms. Shobha to send you the details.

    Right now am looking for answers to few questions, see if you can help me out:

    1. Which utility(vegetables/leafy/medicinal) plants can grow in bright shade. Almost half of my lawn doesn’t get direct sunlight and am wondering what to grow there.

    Vegetables normally do best in full sun. But since you have bright shade, but no direct sun, you could try and grow stuff that normally (in Bangalore conditions) are grown under shade net. This could be cherry tomatoes, baby corn, capsicum (bell peppers), you could also try and grow betel leaves and pepper (you’ll have to provide humidity by spraying water) and the leafy green vegetables. You could also grow turmeric, ginger, galangal, etc. – all medicinal -there is quite a range!! If you want to grow ornamentals you could try coleus (colourful leaves), impatiens (flowers), and other stuff… All the best!

    2. Is it possible to do a soil analysis of my garden and find what will grow best in it.

    It definitely is! But I will need to make a visit and you will have to pay AME something! We can discuss that at a future point in time if you are interested.
