hi...My name is ANUPAM.A.H.I am from kerala living in gurgaon.I am an engineer at G.S engineering and constructions.I am living at ARDEE CITY,sector 52.I have a small front area,where I can grow plants.Presently I have planted a banana tree,and Ladies finger plants.I got 10-15 ladies finger.I also have beans plant..It would be very helpful if someone suggested me some shops where i can get more seeds and organic fertilisers in gurgaon.
Welcome Anupam. Good show with the Okras. I believe you have a small garden in front of your house, thats where you're growing your plants, coz I can't imagine Banana in containers 🙂
As for Seeds, Gurgaon Sadar is the best bet. Search for my previous posts and threads. I have given all the information there.
Also for Organic fertilizer I would recommend Dried Cow dung manure and Okhla Khaad. You can get them at Ahmed nursery, next to a wine shop at the beginning of Mehrauli Gurgaon Road (towards Delhi) on your left. This is right opposite Big Fish (shop for pet fish).
You can also give a try at those organic fertilizer bags you get for 40-50 bucks for 5 kg bag. I personally don't find them good enough. Above 2 are good enough.
I never take much attention about the details. Whenever my chili plants yield become less i will sow some seeds in pots/ground and replant it when it is having some true leaves(say six). I think within one week seeds will germinate.
I will try to post a pic of seedlings I have now
I am soaking the seeds with harder shell/bigger seeds like beans, Ridge gourd etc. U can try soaking the chili seeds too
-I posted some pic of the chili plants different stage
yes their are a few online reliable stores i buy my seeds from KRAFT SEEDS you can google them quick and reliable seeds get delivered, i buy my fertilizer and potting soil and coco pellets from a shop in mumbai called green jardine
Also on a free day venture out and explore Rajdhani Nursery they have a great collection of plants seeds and fertilizers and helpful staff.
The above people have been responsive and attentive so i recommend them.
On a blog some where it was mentioned to sprinkle dried red chilly to have it insect free so i experimented after a week i have several chilly seedlings and now i have different chilly plants
Have Naga Jolokia, jalapeno, and a few other variety its easy to germinate from dried seeds then from the fresh ones hope this information helps, also do place pepper plants in full sun for faster growth.
