here in delhi its 43 deg celcius and all my tomato plants  are dead( as it seems , cause there are no leaves, all dried up...the stem is a bare green).

 

the humidity is  mere 25 percent

 

what are the best suggestions for planting vegetables in pot in this kind of season?

 

or should i wait for  some rain for sowing?

Is it possible for you to provide some shade during peak noon using some shade net?

Hi,

1. Try spraying water on the leaves using a handheld sprayer. Do this 2-3 times during the day.

2. Watering during evening (after sun goes down) also should help.

3. Fill water in a tray and keep the pots in it. This helps to create a "wicking" action. As the water starts drying up, it will be wicked up through the bottom hole. Thus plants don't go thru the "shock".

Hi Biju

What an assortment of flowers ! where is this beautiful garden located ?

I guess it is too much to hope it is in chennai !

Seeing the variety it is either Bangalore or Kerala.

Hi Usha,

you got the places right. 🙂

I am originally from Kerala, settled in Bangalore and currently working in US. The pictures are from my garden in US.
