Hi,

 

I was being told by one of the seed dealers, that tomatoes wont thrive in this hot weather and it is not wise to sow seeds now. It is nearly 40deg C in chennai and it is only going to get worse. I've placed my plants in the terrace and it would get sunlight from around 6.30am to 1pm.

 

Please advice.

I think okra and brinjal would do well during this period. what do you think raghu? Are there any additions to this list.

Hello kumarssm you can propagate okras/brinjals/chillies/maize(pop corn or sweetcorn) raise the seedlings in good shade&sow it but if the weather exist like this the result is worst.Thanks.

Thanks Raghu. By "if the weather exist like this the result is worst." did you mean sudden rains or too much heat.. I heard there was rains in Madurai this week which was not very much expected.
