What can I plant in my garden?

You can start with something from your kitchen shelf, that is available and used in everyday cooking like coriander (dhaniya), fenugreek (methi), gram (chana) and chilli (mirchi). Once you gain confidence you can move onto vegetables of your choice and even grow fruit trees like banana and pomegranate. Almost all vegetables can be grown (creepers, drumstick, lime, tomatoes).


How do I begin to green my terrace and grow food on my roof?

You can begin greening your terrace with these simple steps, and then move on to bigger ideas:

  • Take any simple pot or ‘gamla’ or better still recycle any of your old containers.
  • Mix compost, soil, coir peat (or sand) and vermicompost in equal quantities.
  • Cover the drainage hole at the bottom of the container with a broken pot piece or a flat stone, and fill it up with the mixture. You will have to drill a hole in a recycled container first.
  • Pour water and check that no soil is discharged through the bottom hole.
  • Wet the soil and plant your seed or sapling.
  • Watch your greens grow!

What is a terrace garden?

Also called a roof garden,it is a garden in which vegetables, fruits or flowers are grown on terraces, balconies or roofs of buildings. The kitchen garden, a standard in every Indian household, has now shifted to the roof due to constraints of space, and is called a terrace garden. Increasing pressure on land and escalating costs have also added to its growing popularity.


Do I need to buy insurance for solar system?

We would recommend you to do it. Think of the solar installation as analogous to buying a car; just like you would buy insurance for your car, we suggest you do the same for the solar installation.

In the case of systems purchased through bank solar loans, the bank would require insurance to be in place for the duration of the loan term.
