Hi GG,

I want to plant vegetables for this winter and have bought the seeds of peas , tomato, eggplant and a lot of greens. Greens are doing well whereas Peas, Tomato and Eggplant are about to germinate. Before I plant them I have some questions in my mind. Please help me to understand,

If peas are the right vegetable (in terms of yield) to grow in containers? what is the right size of container? how many plants can be planted in one container?

 

What is the right size of container for planting tomato and eggplant?

 

The variety of tomato is the normal one (Desi Tamatar) and eggplant is the dark purple one which is commonly available in the market. 

 

Thanks in advance.

Regards..

Viny

Hai,Tomatos&eggplants can grow in poly bags of size 1 feet high 1 feet wide filled with rich loamy soil enriched with neem leaf compost.But both of these will attract all type of pests but shade net will useful.Thanks.

Thanks Raghu,

I use my home made compost (from kitchen waste) for most of the plants with cow dung manure. would it be sufficient for the growth? please suggest..

 

Any suggestions for peas...

Regards.

any idea what approx pot size would do for peas ?

 

@ Viny - should be fine.. (make sure the cow manure is well rotted & not fresh)

compost from kitchen wastes is great!

sea kelp is also good & its organic..... i occasionally spray feed with that now & then

As Darkstorm also asked can you please suggest the pot size for peas. Can I grow 2 plants in a single pot of 12".

Thanks Darkstorm,

Sea kelp is not available here in Delhi but my home made compost seems sufficient as 99% of my plants are happy. 🙂

 

Keep in Touch
