    I think the drainage is the problem with my plants.  Thanks for the advice on the sand and rocks. I had been mixing perlite and vermiculite thinking I could work around the drainage without rocks.

    Thanks for the video. While I do have land to plant vegetables and fruit in. I just can’t because I am going to sell my house and wondered if it was possible to plant in containers. Much appreciated.

    Glad you like this video guys! :)

    I used sand bags around my rows of pots or at the mouth of the drain hole to prevent the soil mix from getting washed into the drains. Also, if your balcony or terrace is part of a rainwater harvesting system, then, a) you have to be careful about soil entering the water system and b) you have to avoid harmful chemicals altogether.

    @chaiwithlaksmi Hi, I live in a terraced house in England and I have a small back garden but because it doesn’t get very much sunshine I have decided to try growing vegetables in containers in my front garden. It is bare and covered with pebbles but it gets alot of sunshine. So far I have 4 big buckets of soil/compost mixture (which I still need to cut some drainage holes at the bottom of) My neighbours are looking at me like I’m crazy, but tbh I couldn’t care less!

    Hello Lakshmi (spelled correctly this time, forgive me), thanks, I hope so too.
    I’ve started some runner beans, tomato plants, chilis and aubergines. Quite an early stage but so far they are looking good. :)

  • chaiwithlakshmi says:

    That’s great! Email us some pics once you’ve got the harvest. Would love to see! Email addy:

    I doubt you need everything in perfect place in life to find a successful combination. :)
