Started for Her Dad’s Health, Ludhiana Woman Grows 200 Plants in Her Terrace Garden

From broccoli, carrots to tomatoes and melons, Ludhiana's Ravneet Kaur grows 200 plants in her 2,000 sq ft terrace garden.

Started for Her Dad’s Health, Ludhiana Woman Grows 200 Plants in Her Terrace Garden

When Ravneet Kaur’s father was unwell in 2019, she started growing wheatgrass, which is said to be a good aid in digestion, reduce bloating, and cure upset stomach.

When the COVID-19 lockdown was initiated, the Ludhiana-resident experimented more with different vegetables and fruits. First, she started growing easy-to-grow vegetables, such as spinach and brinjal. Later on, she included zucchini and bitter gourds in her garden.

What started with five pots is now a lush haven that has several fruits and seasonal vegetables — from cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, radish, and carrots during winter to cucumber, okra, pumpkin, tomatoes, and even some melons in summer.

Today, she grows more than 200 plants in her 2,000 sq ft terrace garden. She shares the tips with her over 1.5 lakh followers on Instagram.

But this success also came with a set of challenges. Ravneet says maintaining a terrace garden was challenging as it was difficult to manage weather conditions and pest attack outbreaks.

However, she is resilient to growing indigenous varieties and seasonal vegetables. She says having patience is the key to a bountiful crop.
