Hi Ansoo,
I.am purchasing a 2 BHK for my family. What should I can do to set up an efficient vertical kitchen garden in my balcony.

My flat is South West facing and receives direct sunlight for 4 hours every day.

Thanks,
Ashutosh

Just to make a small correction ( I am a certified horticulturist) we have seeds and SEEDLINGS!

SAPLINGS are Trees grown from cuttings or small shrubs...

Hello @Ashutosh Joshi , firstly, it is very good that you are taking care of this aspect right from the beginning. You should be able to grow most plants nicely. Please take wind etc into account as that dries up the soil. Start with a mix of methi, baingan, okra etc and see how it goes. Vertical garden kits are available easily these days but I suggest, get used to the new microclimate first for 3 months and then set up the vertical garden.
