I am a retired scientist and spending my retired life peacefully in Pune, a city of historic importance and known for its educational and cultural institutes. In addition to my hobby as woodworker I love to spend time with plants. I have a terrace garden of 1500 square feet area where I grow flower plants and seasonal vegetables. I am member of the sister site Lumberjocks for about two years and am enjoying it a great deal. I would like to share my experience in gardening with you and hope to gain lot of knowledge from fellow menbers who are exposed to advanced techniques and tools in growing healthy plants. The meaning of the word "Bagwan" is "a gardener"
