Your nearby Plant Nursery may have varieties of plants (not sure what will grow on it at the end), soil, pots, some may even sell compost.

I am not sure if they sell seeds.
There are many more suppliers/sellers, but it will require a lot more time to compile the list.
The problem most of the time in purchasing plants & other stuff is transportation.So most people prefer to by it from the neighborhood nursery.
For people staying on the western side between Andheri to Malad there are a few big nurseries selling nice variety of plants, soli & pots on S.V Road.
The easiest way to get saplings, plants & all things is to be in touch with like minded people.People with desire & passion for green.Its a difficult world out there …specially if you want to grow plants in a city like Mumbai.
The data presented above may not be accurate & will be super glad to be corrected, if you know of any supplier please add the address & other details in the comment section.That will help a lot many people.
Cheers!! Let it Grow.
