  38. Hi all,

    They have started distributing the kits. It costs 1325 per kit. You have to take a copy of the ration card and a passport size photograph. Worth getting it. Though I stay at Trichy, I had arranged for getting it from Anna Nagar and sending it through parcel service like KPN by my brother.

  41. Sir,
    I got the Kit in Thriruvanmiyur on 26-8-14, at 1325 per kit, You need ration card zerox and passport photo , not accepting stamp size photo, and you have to fill a form there. The kit is heavy so two wheeler and bus not suitable to transport, for one kit auto is best for more you have to arrange with a tempo or call taxi or car

  60. Lokesh, sorry for my delayed response.
    While proceeding towards Koyembedu from central, you should take the right at the "Anna Arch". Immedieatly on your left (50 mtr from anna arch) you will find a narrow passage (adjacent to small temple). You should take that. That place is big open yard for storing material & some rail bridge construction too will be going on. once you enter, immedieatly on your left you will find this horticulture dept. My advice is that pls buy the compost from here itself. this is not part of the Kit, but it is required to be mixed with the cocopeat. or even you can buy from the self help group (NGO) which collects the garbage from your home. Most of the areas have got a plant to convert this garbage to vermicompost. So you can even get it from them. Price will be average Rs 11 per kg in self help group & Rs 35 @ horticulture. Price varies with Quality.

  61. For those who find it difficult to buy from the Horticulture dept, can just login to Amazon.in & click gardnening. You will find all required things that are sold by horticulture dept. From germinating seeds tray, polybags to cocopeat, manure and seeds.. everything.. click on the below link. you will also find seeds.

    1. Normally mosquitos are found in more greenery areas. Because of rain you may find more mosquitos in this season. Try to put the required amount of water in the pots and see no stagnate of water in the pots & in and around, which will avoid mosquito breeding.

    1. DIY Kit is being issued at Govt horticulture department office, Chennai and Coimbatore. The addresses of the same are available as comment in this post

      There is no registration required to get the kit this time. You should note that, there is no subsidy from Goverment this time. If you can get the kit for lesser price in your local market, you can buy from them instead of going to horticulture department. I do get the products in outside market for more or less same price in Chennai.

      Contents of one kit is Rs.500. Below is the details of products you get:

      1. GROW BAG WITH COCOPEAT 2 KG BLOCK - 6 NOS.
      2. SEEDS BHENDIARAKEERAI, MULAIKEERAI, SEDI AVARAI, RADDISH, PALAK KEERAI, CORIANDER
      3. AZOSPIRILLUM 200 GM
      4. PHOSPHOBACTEREA 200 GM
      5. PSEUDOMUNAS 100 GM.
      6. TROCODERMAVIRIDI 100 GM
      7. WATER SOLUBLEFERTILIZER 1 KG.
      8. NEEM OIL 100 ML.
