For your garden needs, here is an interesting option. A wave of emotion sweeps one away, while entering Harith Tharang (Green Waves), the Garden Shop at T. Nagar. Pleasant shades of green on interesting and innovative pots and containers greet the visitors.

Harith Tharang is making waves with its ‘gifting a plant' venture, as the city is echoing the concept of ‘Going Green.' It is the brain child of M.T. Rajen's Pooncholai, an established landscape designer and horticulturist.

Rashmi Sunil, proprietor of Harith Tharang, says that it is inspired by the model of garden centre abroad. Started this August, Harith Tharang deals in all types of garden needs – indoor, outdoor and table tops. However, the speciality is the table top and creative arranging of plants for beauty.

Harith Tharang showcases a range of artistic potteries and containers. Mud, glass, terracotta, ceramic, wood, sandstone, bamboo basket and other crafty containers, to name a few. It also offers plants for rental and for customised gifting purpose.

Rashmi says that it is all about playing around with the plants and arranging them creatively. The plants are available from Rs. 15 to Rs. 15,000.

Table tops and fountains are the fast moving ‘gift plant', she says. The fountains are available from Rs. 2,000 to 3,000. Balcony baskets, hanging bamboo containers with climbers and cascades are other noticeable ones at Harith Tharang. Some of them are filled with coconut fibres for easy maintenance and retention of water, Ms. Rashmi says.

Harith Tharang is located at Rajen's Square, 40, Bazullah Road, T. Nagar. Ph: 6527 5990 / 98412 79881.
