We are publishing an interview of Mr. Naveen G, Technical and Marketing, Seedbasket.
What is the problem you are trying to solve? Can you share with us any insights that led you to believe that this is a big enough problem?
One of the major reasons for starting our online portal seedbasket (Online store for home gardening products) is the non-availability of Organic Vegetables. We can get Organic Products from any supermarket but it is pretty much hard to get Organic Vegetables and Fruits. Even if, by chance you get those Organic Vegetables, you will end up paying three to four times the price to that of normal vegetables which are a huge drawback. The other thing is you will never know the authenticity of those vegetables, whether they are really Organic Vegetables or not. Then I got that idea of growing vegetables at our home which is now getting a good response from the cities and urban areas. My necessity of Organic Seeds has pushed me to start this e-commerce website. Anther reason that has fuelled me to start an e-commerce website on Online vegetable seeds, is the lack of a proper dedicated website for home gardening. Apart from providing Organic Vegetable Seeds, I have tried to incorporate all the products that are helpful for Home Gardening, which might be Vegetables Seeds flower,fruit seeds or grow bags and other gardening materials etc….
