Tips for a Terrace Garden

Take any simple pot as per the type of plant you are planning to grow in them. You can either go for the earthen pot or commonly known ‘gamla’ or even you recycle the old containers which are of no use and you are intending to throw them off.

  • Mix a perfect composition of soil, compost, or vermicompost & other organic fertilizers in equal quantities.
  • You will have to drill a hole in a recycled container first and then cover them appropriately so that no moisture is lost.
  • Wet the soil and plant your seed or sapling and thereafter pour water to ensure no soil is released from the bottom hole.
  • Terrace or a roof garden can be done on any surface post waterproofing of the roof. There are various waterproofing solutions available in the market which will ensure that the roof is water-resistant & leakage-free
  • A Plant with fibrous roots generally do not cause any harm to the surface of the roof but you should always avoid plants with tap roots such as like mango as they can penetrate the surface roof and harm it by growing its roots in the structure.
  • Always keep a check on the unwanted plants or sapling which either the wind or birds may bring. These seeds can germinate on their own and take root on the roof itself.
  • There are various shapes and sizes of container available in the market. You can go for any preferred type of container material such as plastic, ceramic, earthen pot or metal. You can use your creativity to utilize old stuff such as coke bottles, old sacks, coconut shells, broken kitchen pots or buckets.

Types of Plants and Containers for Terrace garden

  • You don't need any farming background to start a roof garden. It only takes enthusiasm for green living and willingness to get your hands dirty.
  • In case you do not have much of Idea about plants and horticulture, you can begin with the very basic stuff such as coriander or fenugreek, gram or chili.
  • Once you have gained confidence, you can start growing vegetables as per your selection and can even cultivate fruit trees such as banana or pomegranate.
