Vaishali Vijaykumar ByExpress News ServiceCHENNAI: Ask anyone in Anna Nagar B Sector, Chennai, for the Garden Queen and all hands instantly point toward Saroja Thiyagarajan’s house. It took 15 years for Saroja to develop her garden, which now bears over 500 plants. I take anybody who comes to my house to see the garden. In 2015, the Tamil Nadu Horticulture Department awarded her for her service in gardening. She also received the Lakshmi Organic Award at Anna University in 2019 for the best garden in Tamil Nadu.
