  • Hello Disha, welcome to the forum! image

    I'm quite new myself, both to gardening and this site but everyone is very supportive and helpful! They like pictures so they can see what your working with! You can upload pics by clicking on the little tree icon in the message box, but it doesn't work in I phones, hope this helps. Best of luck with your garden!image

  • Hi thank u for replying i wanted to post pics but how to there is no tree icon on the message box
  • Hi Disha and welcome!

    Are you posting from a laptop, pc, tablet or iphone?  You can't post pictures on here from an iphone, but you could upload them to a photo-hosting service and then post the link image

    Hello disha. I see that you live in Mumbai. I think you are the only person on the forum who lives there. Maybe you could out yourself on our map!image

    Not sure about plants for the Mumbai climate. It's late summer here and the temperature at midday in my garden was 16°C yesterday.image

  • I think that your summers and our summers may be very different ... can you tell us a bit more about the weather conditions where you are?

  • Hey thanks will check that out

    Wanted to know if we are growing vegetables in containers

    What should be minimum size of a container for growing lemon tomatoes sweet potates than drumsticks
  • Here in the UK the summer finished yesterday and autumn has begun - at the moment daytime temperatures are in the mid teens or low twenties celsius if we are lucky, and at night here in East Anglia it's around 10 or 12 C

    We've had a lot of heavy rain in this region over the past few days and it's not been possible to do much gardening other than deadheading and picking some fruit and vegetables.

    At the moment I have autumn raspberries and grapes fruiting and we have tomatoes, runner beans and courgettes for vegetables.  The broccoli has been planted out and it will spend the winter growing very slowly, then in the spring we should get lovely purple shoots to cook for our supper. 

    I'm sorry, I don't grow the vegetables you mention.
