Hope to receive quick response .
Im unable to post pics,still tried eucalyptusl with dish washing liquid soap yesterday.lets wait n see if they appear again.
I dont know where to find panch..... in delhi,the shop i buy goods dont keep it.
u know any place plz let me know.
anyways... how r ur flower seedlings doing n veges too?
That could fix the problem. I had some pests on my Areca Palm and I washed it with with dish washing liquid and it hasn't come back. Although the palm grows very very slowly.
As for the plants, I donno, I am losing patience or something else is wrong. I guess i have to just keep on waiting. All the seeds I had sown have germinated and the plants are growing albeit very slowly.
Spanish Oregano/ Ajwain and Lemon Basil are growing very well. Sunflower has stunted, hybrid chillis have just been transplanted. Zinnia is also growing very well but I don't see a single flower in it 🙁
Curry leaf is also very slow in growth. Lemon grass is going to get extinct soon.
Check out my photo album in Picasa.You'll see the latest updates there,
I saw the pics plants look quite healthy to me.ur mint is growing so well.
curry grows slowly so need to have patience,is looking gud. Marigold,Gazzenia,Zinnia,tamato,balsam nd basil(saw leaf miner in the pic)seems to be healthy too.the ones in the long container, r these spinach?
I have observed something recently I planted some spinach in soil,some in
cocopeat mix.ones in the soil mix have started bearing true leaves equivalent
to normal leaves harvested in cocopeat mix.so i think after experimenting with
cocopeat Im going to do more experiment with soil.(its the mother nature's medium).
My african marigold seedlings died once,again theres some germination.french marigold never germinated .ohh yes, my okra plants died as some insects/worms ate the stems nd made black spots....
Even Im trying my level best to be patient as im still novice.time teaches everyone
TC n Happy gardening
You can make organic insecticide at home by boiling neem leaves, aak leaves, garlic paste chilli paste in gau mootra. Spray it on plants by mixing with water.
Spraying only gau mootra mixed with water also helps.
I used it and found effective on ridge gourd, bitter gourd, okra and spinach. The plants did not have curled leaves and the white insects are also much less.
