Even as the price of vegetables and the AQI index rise at equal pace, let’s start 2023 with some green energy. If you have trouble telling which one of your fingers is your green thumb, here are a few urban gardeners to follow to gently start off on keeping your own kitchen or terrace garden.

Leaves that heal

Madhavi Guttikonda focuses on plants that have health benefits and encourages people to grow organic food at home. She teaches methods of fertilisation, pest control, and other plant care, if you want to nurture a terrace garden. She also has plenty of tips up her sleeve for container gardening.

Root cause

Ekta Chaudhary has scientific explanations for the art of gardening and breaks down all the terms used. She also creates 10-second videos on care of specific plants. If you are curious why the leaves are furry or their colour so pale, she knows it all. Her store also sells materials necessary to 
get started.

Green in

If you want to add plants to your home decor, but have questions about which plant needs how much light, where to place them, how much to water them… Priyanka is the person to turn to. Her feed has DIY hacks to beautify spots and how to choose containers. She also has some self-watering planters that will make your life easy.

Go darker

To advance further in the green zone, take help from Annette Mathew as she shows how to create cutesy gardens such as Lion King-themed fairy garden in a small pot, terrarium or teapot. She experiments with succulents and knows of plants uncommon at local nurseries. If you also want to know how to keep those fancy ornamental trees you see in the restaurants on a budget, then this is the place.

Trash to treasure

Armen Adamjan’s catchphrase is “don’t throw it out” and he shows you how to grow vegetables and other produce from seeds, stumps, leaves that you would usually throw out. The creatively explained tips and tricks will definitely have you getting your hands dirty.
