Hi

 

When I was having a casual chat with a landscape designer in one of my friend's house, I was told to improve flowering in Roses, it is required to add DAP in small quantities. I wanted to know from the experts here,

 

1. if DAP is organic.

2. If yes, how frequently should it be added.

3. Could it be added for vegetable plants as well.

You can use vermicompost or compost. You can also get biofertilizers like Phospobacteria etc and add to the potting mix.

DAP is Diammonium phosphate. The best organic source for Phosporus is Bone meal which gardenguru site has available. Add a small quantity – one tea spoon before planting the seeds or saplings. DPA has nitrogen as well - organic sources would be all oil cakes after oil extraction (neem, pogamania, cotton..etc), fish meal, blood meal if you can get hold of these.

How to add the Oil Cakes (Neem, Honge etc.) to the soil.  These cakes are hard and hence I soak them in water and when it gets mixed completely, I add 10 ml of this mix to the plant soil.  Will it be ok or else what is the right method of adding the oil cakes to the soil.

There is no defined way of adding them to the soil. What you are doing is fine.
