hi iam Yogi from delhi. first few words about myself.My wife and i love gardening but both are ignorant in basics. we have spent a lot on plants and pots but didnt get the required results some of the plants died some didnt grow well.now i have built a garden on terrace and determined to get a lush garden.

Now for experts i need some guidance
1. i bought a pesticide called Neem Baan (1500ppm) its an Azadirachtin based.Can i use it on my ornamental as well as on my veggies?
2. Have NPK 19:19:19 can i use them on both veggies well as ornamental. if yes how to use it? have to spray it on plants or put directly around the roots.
3. Got cocopeat ,perlite, vermilite can i use these three as a potting mixture.

i will be very thankful to all the learned members about their advice.

Yogi

Yes, Neembaan can be used without any problem.

You can add 19-19-19 2-3gms /litre of water and water the plants. no need to spray.

Those materials can be used as a potting mixture .remember to add fertilizer or use 19-19-19 every week since none of cocopeat, perlite and vermiculite have any nutrients in them.
