Make your home lively- grow a balcony garden !
March 5 2016

Living in the city shouldn't deter you from indulging in some gardening. Balcony gardening doesn't take up much space and makes your home look super pretty. Besides, it's a gratifying hobby where you show your plants some love and they reward you with fresh air and soothing ambience.

Here are some pointers to help you grow a balcony garden!

1. Make the right choice!

Gauge the microclimate of your balcony. Step outside to take note of how sunny, shady, cool or windy it is. Choose your plants accordingly. Your local plant shop will help you make the right decision as they won't stock anything that can't survive in local weather.

2. Wind-Breaker

High-rise apartments have a lot of wind blowing in that may affect the health of your plants. Protect them with correct placement and place heavier pots that won't be blown down. Water them regularly to prevent them from drying.

3. Space It Out!

Having a smaller space doesn't imply you have fewer plants. Utilize vertical space by hanging baskets and pots in which you could grow plants that dangle down. These planters sure will heighten the appeal of your high-rise balcony!

4. Herbalicious

Growing herbs serves the dual purpose of requirement and space. Herbs like Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme, take little time to grow and can serve as garneshing for your recipies! Include fresh herbs in your food and begin a healthy diet.

5. A Dash of TLC

Tend to your plants regularly. Keep pests at bay, by growing plants like marigold and nasturtium. Use organic spray repellents to prevent an infestation and don't forget to water your thirsty little ones!

So, prepare your gorgeous personal space, put up a chair, kick back and enjoy the fruits (quite literally) of your hard work!


I’ve been a sports person, and also captained my throwball and volleyball teams. I understand the importance of extracurricular activities in our growing up years.

Trainings provide a child with the required discipline when working within teams as well as gives one the chance to follow what makes you happy. It also enables an overall development!
Dance has been my passion since I was a child and I have been thrilled to see both my little ones have this in their genes too.

This opportunity really came to my doorstep through Gera. My daughters Lavanya and Diya have had an enthralling experience being a part of not just one but three Academies (The Shiamak Davar Dan..

I cannot thank you enough for making our journey with Gera so so interesting and mind-blowing. I had never ever imagined my life taking a beautiful turn with me beginning to start my career as a music teacher that too with SMA (Shankar Mahadevan Academy) and all this has been possible only because of GERA and YOU my dear.
It is only because of your efforts and kind gesture that I could meet the man himself (Shankar Ji) and have a small recording session with him. That was like a dream come true.
I am super excited to start my journey with SMA and Gera as a teacher now.

Apart from that, Me and Prateek have always been grateful to you for making Shiamak happen for us and I ..

It was indeed a pleasure being a part of the Christmas celebrations at Astoria. Kudos to the Gera team for bringing in such a wonderful event with great carol singing participation from our own kids. It brought in the spirit of Christmas and the games, Santa, the gifts only added to it. Thanks for organising such a wonderful event which helped in community building...looking forward to many more such celebrations!


The Christmas event organised at Astoria was a big success and a big step in bridging the gap between us and Gera. It was a memorable event as we are still in the beginning of our journey of life in our little home at Astoria. The kids have been the happiest of all and what more can we ask for when we see smiles on the faces of our little ones. Kudos to you and your team for making this event a huge success! Looking forward to many more in the years to come.


The Christmas party organised by Gera at Astoria this year was a great success with good participation from kids and parents. Our children Sia and Saish enjoyed the party to the fullest. Sia, in particular, had a gala time and reiterated her stand that Anita aunty's parties are THE BEST.... We as your customers take much pride in informing our friends that such goodwill gestures are one of the many differentiators Gera brings to us, which no other builder in Goa can boast of. Many thanks to you and your team for doing an excellent job in putting up this event. We look forward to the next one! A big thanks to the Gera Management for its efforts in community building.
