Recently I came across a new way of growing tomatoes - upside down so that the roots are up and the plant, especially the vegetable is facing downward. This is supposed to give a better yield. Explanations are that root gets better air and lighting and of course, the gravitational pull makes the vegetables bigger. Before venturing into setting it up, I would like to know if anyone of you has tried this out, and if yes, is it really true. What this will mean is we can have plants hanging from small posts in the garden - a way to create our own hanging garden. Of course, it will be easier to pick the vegetables.

I have received quite a few requests from the blog visitors from India to send them seeds, especially in small quantities, just sufficient for home gardening as most online sites are willing to sell only in bulk. I am willing to provide you seeds for fruits, flowers and vegetables even for transactions less than Rs. 100. Of course, in addition to the cost of seeds, there will be a postal/ courier charge. The only issue is how to receive payments. I am scouting Paypal as some friends suggested that it has low transaction charges. Very soon, I will set it up and put a post regarding the same. Meanwhile, if you have any views/ suggestions, please let me know.
